Mallow or malva comes from the large family of Malvaceae plants which also include okra, hibiscus and cotton. It is also referred to as “cheeseweed” in some parts of the world for its wedged rounded seed pods that look similar to a wheel of cheese. The leaves have a mild green taste, but are not super strong or bitter like that of other wild variations. All parts, including the leaves are used specifically as a mild laxative, diuretic, anti-inflammatory with soothing demulcent and expectorant properties than help to clear mucus from the body.
Properties: Demulcent, emollient, useful in inflammation and irritation of the alimentary canal, protective for the urinary and respiratory organs, popular remedy for coughs and colds, decoction for injection, cures strangury and gravel.
Usage: Add a spoonful of monastic mallow in 1.5 liters of boiled water. Allow to steep for 6-8 minutes. Drink one cup of tea every morning, noon and evening before every meal!
