Marshmallow naturally grows primarily in marshy wetlands, which is how it got its name. Every part of the marshmallow plant is edible, the flowers, stems, and leaves can all be used to make salads. However, the main parts are consumed are its root and leaves. As early as 9BC, the Greeks used marshmallows to heal wounds and soothe sore throats. A balm made from the plant’s sap was also applied to toothaches and bee stings.
