MARSHMALLOW ROOT POWDER
Marshmallow has long been considered one of the most benevolent of herbs, renowned for its soothing and softening actions. Its therapeutic effects are largely due to its significant mucilage and pectin content, aided by its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Pectin is a soluble fibre that is beneficial for intestinal function and for keeping blood sugar levels in order. Mucilages are compounds which, when combined with water, form a slippery, slimy, semi-solid texture which has soothing and protective properties for surfaces such as the lining of the digestive tract or the skin. In addition, mucilages have the ability to bind toxins and wastes to themselves and thereby aid in their removal from the body.
While both the root and leaf of marshmallow contain mucilage, the root contains a higher proportion of it. The powdered root, mixed with water, can be used as a poultice for skin inflammations, rashes, bruises, abrasions, wounds and ulcers, sometimes on its own or in conjunction with other poulticing agents or herbs such as slippery elm. An infusion of marshmallow leaf may be used as a soothing wash for inflamed skin.
Taken internally, marshmallow is healing and protective for damaged, inflamed gut walls, and is thus used for treating conditions such as ulcers, colitis and enteritis. Horses who have colicked, or who are scouring, can benefit from the soothing and healing effects of marshmallow for a number of weeks afterward (usually in conjunction with other herbs, including chamomile).
This is a 50/50 mix of both powders.
