Marshmallow is a member of the mallow family, which includes cotton and okra. The long, thin roots have been used for food during times of scarcity for centuries. Marshmallow root is not only nutritious but also contains a high concentration of mucilage.Although the powdered root is sometimes encapsulated, it is most often used to make a mouthwash for sore gums or infused oils and salves for minor skin irritations. Marshmallow root is also used to make natural shampoos and conditioners for dry or damaged hair.
