Marshmallow By Kim Balas
Originally, the marshmallow plant was a native of specific regions of Europe and Asia but now can be found in areas of the United States as well and has been used for healing for over 2500 years. The scientific name for marshmallow is Althaea officinalis. Althos in Greek means to heal, and the plant was called "the official healer." The Romans and the Egyptians ate the root as a vegetable, the poor in Syria use the marshmallow root for food and in the Bible, it was the food of choice in times of famine. Marshmallow grows in damp, wet areas including meadows and marshes. By just looking at where a plant grows gives us a good idea of the plant’s signature and properties: “wet and damp”. The leaves of the marshmallow plant as well as the root are used as medicine.
