Having been used since ancient times, Marshmallow root was originally used throughout the Mediterranean region before spreading widely to most of the rest of the world. Varieties of Marshmallow root were used in food by the Chinese and Ancient Egyptians, as well as in many of the countries of the Balkan region of Europe. The ancients revered the root for its healing properties, with many writing of its ability to help prevent illness and disease, while still others of the ancient world would use it to decorate the grave of deceased loved ones. Today it is also often used as a cleaning product, often favored for cleaning expensive Persian carpets as it will not harm the vegetable dyes used to create the colors within the fine fabrics. In modern spiritual practice, Marshmallow root is also believed to help attract good spirits. Modern herbalists typically prescribe Marshmallow root for use in gargles intended to treat sore throats. This began in ancient Egypt and continues today, with varieties of methods also being used in France that included egg whites and rose water for flavoring. This French variety evolved into the modern Marshmallow, which actually contains no marshmallow root at all! This is a 1 lb packet of Marshamollow root powder.
