Known throughout the ancient Egyptian, Arab, Greek, and Roman cultures, this herb has been used continually for at least 2000 years.

This plant has been used in beverages, desserts, candies, cosmetic creams, and was the "root" of the original marshmallow confectionery.

Dosage and Administration
Best way to take marshmallow root is by supplements. Herbal tablets of about 5 mg can be taken once per day or a liquid alternative of 5-15 ml 3 times daily.  As a cough and respiratory agent, 2 grams of the root should be put into one cup of cold water, soaked for two hours and then gargle.
For topical use,
shredded root should be mixed with enough warm water to form a thick paste and spread onto a clean cloth. Apply to the irritated area as needed.
Herbal Miscellany: 
As the story goes, marshmallows are one of the oldest desserts known to man, with accounts of ancient Egyptians making candies of marshmallow root and honey. These delicacies were naturally reserved for the gods and royalty. However, the first confection which resembled our modern day treat was made in France around 1850. Made by hand until 1900, marshmallow root was added to corn syrup, egg whites, and water and was heated, and poured into molds. By 1955 there were 35 manufacturers in the US creating what we know today as the puffy, white, indispensable addition to s'mores.


Specific: Should be taken with at least 250mL (8 oz) of liquid. Orally administered drugs should be taken 1 hour before use or several hours after, as marshmallow may slow the absorption.
General: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.

Monthly horoscope title-August-2020
Aries:  Can you feel the pull to be a little bit different during the Aquarius full moon on August 3? This eccentric energy urges you to pursue the unknown and not be afraid to be perceived as outside the norm. Yes, this attitude can cause others to stare and point, but when have you cared about what anyone else thinks?
Taurus: The sun is in outgoing Leo as it squares quirky Uranus in your sturdy sign on August 2. The unexpected nature of this transit causes you a lot of stress, because logic won't apply to a lot of situations you find yourself in now. Try not to make any sudden moves. Accidents can happen when you don't plan ahead.
Gemini:  There's a full moon in humanitarian Aquarius on August 3 that makes you want to do good things in the world. You're best when teamed up with others to fight for a good cause, but if that's not possible you can do plenty on your own. Try to wrap up loose ends before starting something new.
Cancer:   Loving Venus enters your calm sign on August 7, and all is at peace in your love and money sectors. You might have outstanding issues in both of these areas, but there isn't an urgency to deal with them. You believe that good things will come if you're patient, and this optimistic attitude becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Leo: Communicative Mercury leaves shy Cancer and enters your dramatic sign on August 4, so here come the embellishments and exaggerations! You don't exactly lie, but you love to emphasize the most dramatic parts of every story now. You give some pretty impressive compliments now as well, even if they are slightly exaggerated.
Virgo:   There's less social energy around you as romantic Venus moves from communicative Gemini to introverted Cancer on August 7. Your focus is more one-on-one now, and you seek to strengthen your family unit or bond with a close friend or lover. You know which relationships are most important, and you're ready to do what it takes to keep them thriving.
Libra:  With the full moon bright in Aquarius on August 3, you'll be feeling rebellious and maybe a little bit strange. You might find yourself on a team with other power players, but you'll still want to express your individuality. There's a way to combine forces to make the world a better place, but it might just take a while to figure out the complicated dynamics.
Scorpio: Communication becomes more open and outgoing as Mercury leaves shy Cancer for gregarious Leo on August 4. You're more likely to express yourself loudly and proudly now, and you don*t care as much what other people think. This is the perfect time to make that grand gesture you've been too shy to make until now.
Sagittarius:   The pairing of Venus with Cancer on August 7 is a satisfying one, although it might be a bit on the tame side for you. When Venus was in Gemini you felt excitement and anticipation, and now you might be missing all of that. The good news is that Venus in Cancer is a very understanding, compassionate, and nurturing energy, and when you pay attention to these, you won't miss those thrilling moments quite as much.
Capricorn:  When Mercury, the planet that rules communication, enters confident and outgoing Leo on August 4, your conversations become bold and dynamic. You love to embellish the stories you tell, and you might even throw in an extra fictional detail or two to see people's reactions.
Aquarius:The full moon in your eccentric sign on August 3 taps into your experimental side. If you still have things you'd like to accomplish from last month, this is the time to think outside the box to tie up those loose ends. Your pioneering spirit helps you come up with ideas that other people would never be able to even dream of.
Pisces: You're a little less shy and more likely to speak your mind when Mercury enters outgoing Leo on August 4. While you're normally perfectly happy working backstage, you actually don*t mind being in the spotlight now. Show off some of your creative talents that no one has seen before!
