Ask anyone about marshmallow, and most will tell you something about the fluffy campfire treat.
But marshmallow is also the name of a plant that has been used for its medicinal benefits for thousands of years.
Marshmallow root reduces inflammation and soothes coughs and sore throats. Due to its slippery nature, it’s also great for detangling and moisturizing hair.
Organic marshmallow root extract and organic coconut oil are two of the star botanicals in Klee Kids’ Magical Detangler. The creamy detangler spray is ultra-moisturizing and great for taming toddlers' or kids' unruly locks. The marshmallow root extract and coconut oil make brushing easy and pain-free.
So, is marshmallow root in the fluffy treat?
Most mass-produced marshmallows no longer contain the actual botanical ingredients, even though ancient Egyptians were said to have concocted the first marshmallows with the plant and sugar.
