Marshmallow Root Seed

Marshmallow (Althaea officinalis) is an extremely valuable and easy-to-grow medicinal plant. Marshmallow root is demulcent ‰ÛÒ it soothes irritated mucus membranes in the digestive tract and lungs, and gives relief to sore throat. It is also mildly stimulating to the immune system. The leaves and flowers are used similarly, but are considered to be less medicinally potent. As an added bonus, marshmallow is a stunning beauty in the garden, growing up to six feet tall in fertile soil, with abundant pink and white flowers that bees love.

Perennial.

Grown at Mano Farm in Ojai, California.
