Marshmallow is such a useful plant to have around. I always keep a bag of powdered root in my herbal first aid kit as its so incredibly versatile. The root is packed with mucilage, a soothing slimy substance that coats & protects and encourages deep and rapid healing of tissues both external and internal. If you need to fix up a tear, rip or rupture anywhere in or on the body then look no further. Read the full list of healing properties and how to harvest and prepare it by clicking here.
