Marshmallow Root

Marshmallow roots

Althaea officinalis

Grown regeneratively, following organic standards, by one of the Meeting House Farm Collaborative Farms.

Available chipped.

Chipped roots are dried immediately after harvest in an on-farm drying facility to maximize potency and preserve quality.

We typically harvest Marshmallow roots in September/October.

In the Apothecary:

Preparations: Cold water infusion of fresh or dried root.  May be preserved with alcohol.

Uses: Respiratory & digestive system support. 

Energetics:  Cooling & Moist

Tastes: sweet, syrupy

Herbal Action: Demulcent, emollient, diuretic.  Roots especially will coat the throat and the digestive tract to reduce inflammation and aid in the body's own healing. 

From our Experience:

We make marshmallow extract using a cold-water infusion.  We add white pine or wild cherry extract and honey to make a wonderful cough syrup for our family.
