Macro Monday – Forgotten herbs – High Mallow

This flower has been appreciated as an ornamental plant for large, intense flowers, but has been used throughout European history also as medicinal plants – due to its rich content in plant mucilages, natural emollients with the action of calming the inflamed mucous membranes. The active ingredients are found in leaves and flowers and have many applications in herbal medicine. They are used as expectorant, soothing digestive tract and urinary tract, moisturizing and laxative. These qualities made them   long time ago sought-after     in the kitchen. The young leaves and flowers have a pleasant taste and are placed in salads or in food.
