The Common Mallow

Its no soo common and she is still hanging around this fall in #nwohio
She likes the cooler weather too.
It's a good plant to #forage#edible too. 🌿

Related to the marshmallow plant. The mallow is astringent, bacterial and anti inflammatory and is a good herbal wash for skin issues and insect bites. 🐝

The leaves are mucilaginous and are good for respiratory issues.The tea is said to help you sleep and can be a mild laxative. 🍃

I use it in a smoothie and salads. I plan on making a salve from it and would love to dry and powder the leaves for a smoothie nutritional powder.💪 This herb definitely falls into my #findanherbstudyituseitloveitandshareit category. I've never used it for pain, but my research mentions it. It is a common herb, but not so common. She's worth checking out. 💚💙💜🧡🌿 Be well, jonnie dee #tsht #touchsomeoneshearttoday #jonniedee #plantmagic #herbalrealestateagent
