Background and Use

Marshmallow has been used in traditional European medicine for more than 2,000 years, and its therapeutic use dates back to the 9th Century. Its genus name, Althaea, comes from the Greek word "altho," which means "to cure." This soothing herb has a high mucilage content, making it a useful remedy for minor irritation of the mucous membranes of the gut.

Marshmallow root and extract were formerly official entries in the United States Pharmacopeia and the National Formulary. In Germany, Marshmallow is used in a standard medicinal tea. The German Commission E reports the use of Marshmallow for soothing oral mucous membranes, stomach and bronchial tract. The root is frequently used in Europe in traditional cough medicines.

Confectionery Marshmallows were once made from this plant, however, they now primarily contain sugar.
