Native to most of Europe, marshmallow is a herbaceous perennial that grows to over one metre tall. Marshmallow’s oval shaped leaves are soft and velvety on both sides due to dense, soft hair coverage. The roots are thick, long and tapering and are white and fibrous within. In all its parts, marshmallow contains an abundance of mucilage with a very emollient texture.
Its botanical name Althaea is derived from the Greek word ‘altho’ meaning ‘to heal/cure’ and the origin of its family name Malvaceae is in the Greek word ‘malake’ meaning soft’. The herb was revered by the ancient Greek physicians, and both the roots and leaves have been used medicinally and as an edible vegetable in many parts of the world. Marshmallow has cool, moist and sweet characteristics, a soft and mucilaginous texture and a slightly sweet fragrance.
