Marshmallow root use
Marshmallow root is said to have antibacterial properties and have traditionally been used against infections and inflammations and to contribute to a calming effect on the body's mucous membranes. The marshmallow root acts as a natural lubrication in the body and creates a protective layer around the membranes. The herb is often used for respiratory symptoms such as colds and coughs as well as for irritation and discomfort in the mouth, throat and vocal cords. Thanks to its antibacterial properties, it is also used to relieve redness and irritation from eczema, itching and other skin conditions.
