How To Make A Cold Marshmallow Root Infusion Marshmallow root is rich in both polysaccharides and starch. When made using the cold infusion method, the healing polysaccharides are the primary component that gets extracted. A decoction (hot water extraction) extracts both.
1 Tbsp marshmallow root
1 Tbsp dried peppermint leaf
2 cups filtered water
DIRECTIONSPlace all ingredients into a pint size mason jar (if you have a bigger container feel free to double the recipe) Pour cold (or room temperature) filtered water over the herbs and fill to the top.
Place in the fridge for a minimum of 3 hours.
I usually make this before bed and allow it to steep over night. Strain the herbs, and drink the tea cold. Enjoy!
Possible Interactions of Marshmallow Root include affecting the way other medications are absorbed or excreted from the body. Marshmallow coats the lining of the stomach and can interfere with the absorption of other drugs so make sure to check with your physician if on medication.
