Marshmallow (Althaea officinalis)


This plant has history dating back to the ancient Egyptians, when they made a special treat made from it's roots.... Yes, this plant was origianally used for marshmallows! (Although, much different than the ones we know today.)

They were made from the water activated gooey substance of the marshmallow's roots.


Because of this gooey substance known as mucilage, this beautiful perennial herb/flower is a must in the medicinal garden.
