The Marshmallow Leaf looks like a maple leaf in terms of shape. You can use both the leaves and roots of the marshmallow plant as medicine and flavoring agents. The Marsh Mallow Leaf has several health benefits such as relieving stomach ulcers, diarrhea, and constipation. You can infuse the Marsh Mallow Leaf in a pot of boiling water and enjoy a warm, earthy, and mild tasting cup of tea. It might taste rather bland, or even unpleasant to some but a cup of this tea could help to alleviate your stomach upsets. Hatton Naturals sources its certified organic MARSHMALLOW LEAF directly from small-scale farm co-ops in Albania. If you like this tea’s unique flavor, you may also enjoy our organic BLACKBERRIES LEAF.
The roots of the marshmallow were used in ancient Egypt to make candied confectionary to serve to their gods.
