Althaea Officinalis or marshmallow is a common plant in Europe and West Asia. We usually find it near riverbeds, as it prefers moist, sandy soils.

It's flavor is root-like, earthy and deeply soothing.


Althaea is an ancient edible plant and medicine, mentioned in the Bible and in Arabic and Chinese history as a valuable food for the poor and in times of famine. The ancient Greeks used it both as medicine and as a decoration for tombs. It takes its name from the ancient Greek word atho which means heal.
