Leaves are edible. Leaf or root tea soothing to irritated membranes, especially of digestive system; also used for coughs, bronchitis, stomachaches; anti-inflammatory, laxative, demulcent, mildly astringent. Useful in irritation of the gastro-intestinal system. Large doses are gently purgative. Externally may be used as a soothing poultice. Its supposed sedative effect is unproven.

In China, the leaves and flowers have been used as an expectorant, a gargle for sore throats, and a mouthwash. Diuretic properties are also attributed to the plant and it is said to be good for the stomach and spleen. Other Malva species are used similarly.

Several species exist, including those with blue or black flowers. Also called "Mallow," and is similar in action to Marshmallow (Althea officinalis). Parts Used: leaf and flowers.

Herbie's Herbs' tinctures

Herbie’s Herbs tinctures are alcohol-based preparations macerated in 50% distilled cane sugar alcohol at a 1:2 ratio. Read more here

Compared to other methods, alcohol helps extract nearly all active constituents from a herb yielding stronger tinctures that require a lower dose to attain beneficial effects.

Alcohol eliminates the growth of bacteria and mold while preserving the valuable constituents resulting in a much longer shelf life.
