This herb has anti-inflammatory effects and stimulates mucous secretion. The healing parts are the leaves and flowers. Tall mallow stimulates coughing to help alleviate respiratory inflammation and bronchial catarrh, while gargling softened mallow helps to get rid of hoarseness. This herb works well as a supplementary treatment for lung diseases. You can make your own tincture with fresh leaves and flowers – put them in a glass jar and pour alcohol over them. Shake every day, and after at least one month, sieve and pour into a clean jar. Use 10 drops, five times a day for beneficial effects.
