Dried & cut.
also known as white mallow herb
To prepare as a herbal tea infusion:
1 heaped TEAspoon of herb per cup required.
Place in a pot.
Add boiling water.
Cover and simmer for 15-30 minutes. (The longer the brewing time, the stronger the result).
Best served without Milk or Sugar.
Strain into a cup and enjoy.
If a sweetener is required, we recommend our Natural Palm Sugar, or our Stevia dried powder.
To make marshmallow syrup, add four ounces of marshmallow root to one quart of water and simmer over low heat until the liquid is reduced by half. Then strain to remove the spent herbs. Add one cup of honey (or other sweetener if preferred) to the concentrated tea and warm together until thoroughly mixed. A couple of drops of essential oil (such as peppermint or orange) can be added to the finished syrup as flavoring. Bottle the finished syrup and store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
