Marshmallows are one of the oldest desserts known to man and have been around for centuries. There are accounts of ancient Egyptians making candies of marshmallow root and honey. Although marshmallow root traditionally was used to make these treats there is no comparison to the gooey, sugary white puffed treat you find in the store today.
Marshmallow is actually the root of the marshmallow plant filled with healing properties and it is pleasantly sweet, mild and energetically cooling and moistening. Today it is often used as a tea, cold infusion or a decoction and as a poultice to treat digestive, respiratory, and skin conditions. It is widely used for its mucilage properties (a gummy substance) and it contains antioxidants, amino acids, and fiber.
