Mallow herbal tea

Healing plants

The human being, from the beginning of his history, that is when he was little more than an evolved ape and began to organize himself in small communities, has always tried to be immortal: perhaps this statement is a bit exaggerated, but the reality, which is also in a positive sense, it is the tendency of man not to want to suffer and to cure the ailments that have always existed in the natural world, both animal and vegetable. Today we are cured thanks to a pharmaceutical industry that has reached very high levels, even if they are not enough because there are diseases such as genetic degenerative ones or like cancer that unfortunately do not yet have a cure; at one time, however, all this did not even remotely exist, and so man tried to seek around himself the cure for his first ailments. Around him, then, there were plants and animals; it has been shown that man has understood how from animals he could get very little as they are generally similar to it, while that he quickly understood how some plants, eaten raw or cooked in a particular way, could do him a lot of good in some situations. And this was true, so much so that since the late Middle Ages man treated himself with plants of all kinds; today this still exists, it is the natural and herbal remedies that are “fashions”, but also effective in some cases. so much so that since the late Middle Ages man treated himself with plants of all kinds; today this still exists, it is the natural and herbal remedies that are “fashions”, but also effective in some cases. so much so that since the late Middle Ages man treated himself with plants of all kinds; today this still exists, it is the natural and herbal remedies that are “fashions”, but also effective in some cases.

Mallow


Mallow is a herbaceous / shrubby plant that grows in tropical and sub-tropical areas of the world: it has a strong character of spontaneity, so rather than cultivated it is “sought”, especially in uncultivated fields and in flowering meadows, where it grows following natural mechanisms. In reality, due to the great beneficial properties that we are about to mention, mallow is now grown industrially by some companies in the world, which however do nothing but help the spontaneous growth of mallows in soils and places that are in all respects. all similar to meadows and uncultivated lands. This plant, which rarely reaches eighty centimeters in height and which is characterized by having a very small trunk at the base from which herbaceous twigs branch off with purple and lilac flowers at the apex, has been known to humans since ancient times: we have historical testimonies dating back to the Ancient Greeks and Romans that tell us how even these peoples already knew mallow and its benefits. These positive effects can be summarized as relaxing, emollient, calming: what is extraordinary is that they apply to both the body and the mind of man.

Mallow herbal tea

Today, herbalists advise us to take mallow as an herbal tea, which is very similar to how we take chamomile and tea: by “unloading” some parts of the plant in hot water, filtering it and then drinking it hot. But in which cases is mallow recommended? Its most appreciated action is the emollient one, that is the one that helps to cure the inflammations of the tissues in which this infusion will pass; since the herbal tea must be ingested, the mallow herbal tea has a calming effect for all the discomfort in the areas of the throat, stomach and intestine: the substances it contains cover the soft tissues of the throat, protecting them from other irritants and allowing for example a sore throat to heal. Or again, when it passes through the stomach it will help to soothe the heartburn or those discomfort such as cramps, very annoying, on which it has a quick calming effect. Finally, in the digestive path, it will meet the intestine, on which it has a calming effect in all those cases in which it is irritated, but on which it also has a soothing effect when you have problems with hemorrhoids or intestinal infection, for example.

Mallow herbal tea: Uses and preparation

When you have ailments like sore throat, heartburn, intestinal irritation and others, our first thought is medicine, and that’s not wrong at all; however, the mallow can help us a lot to soothe the problems in the time in which the medicines take effect to heal us. Or again the mallow herbal tea can be used in the initial stages of the disorder or as a prevention, maintaining a certain regularity that prevents the disorder from appearing when we know that there is a risk or we have a tendency. In reality, the mallow herbal tea, in addition to being easily available in almost every herbalist shop, can be easily prepared: we can either buy the flowers and other parts of the plant in particularly well-stocked herbalists, or we can be lucky enough to find mallow in a field and , after making sure it’s really mauve, take it home with us. Well, just let the interesting parts dry (flowers and leaves at the apex) and then, after having carefully minced them, let them “discharge” each positive component in hot water for about ten minutes; after that, when the water is colored, we can filter it (so as not to drink the pieces of plant) and drink it hot steaming, to improve the general effect of its effects. In difficult times like winter, taking a natural mallow herbal tea two or three times a day is a great way to keep many ailments away. when the water is colored, we can filter it (so as not to drink the pieces of plant) and drink it steaming hot, to improve the general effect of its effects.
