Mallow, malva Malva sylvertris
|Malva is marvelous.||I was going round to my friend Annie's birthday and had nothing to bring except mallow from the garden. She was delighted. She had a bit of a cough and, she's from Quebec, "Malva, in french, this is mal va. 'Bad go.' My mother gives this to us for many ailments."|
Mallow is a demulcent. Sovereign for soothing mucus membranes: throat, bronchi, guts...
many texts say, marshmallows replaced it (It is a much stronger demulcent... it
is the champion) - not in my garden. The spirit of mallow is healing.

leaves and flowers are the medicinal part and can be used to make an infusion,
