A Soft and Sweet Beauty: Marshmallow

“Marshmallow leaves is an old fashioned remedy for coughs, colds and whooping cough. An ounce of the leaves in one and a half pints of boiling water boiled down to one pint, makes a useful fomentation for inflamed wounds, boils or abscesses.” –

Tommy Fagan, County Longford, Schools’ Collection, 1930’s
