Episode 25 - Marshmallow

Amparo Aracil is a Spanish born Scotland based herbalist. She learnt Herbal Medicine in the UK and is currently training to become a doctor. She brings a fresh look at Marshmallow using her wonderfully in-depth and colourful knowledge of phytochemistry.

Marshmallow gave its name to the sweet. It's wonderfully softening and soothing properties most commonly used for digestion. Amparo explains how she likes to prepare and use it. It's a herb I have a lot of but don't use much.
