It has been used as a medicinal plant since Roman times. In the 16th century, it was known as a cure-all or omnimorbia. The flowers were used fresh in compresses or dried for infusions and extracts.

They have a mucilaginous quality. It is a strong, hardy plant, often found growing on wasteland. You can eat its leaves and shoots in salads or vegetable dishes.
The mallow is a herbaceous plant, which is mainly native to the Mediterranean region. In Germany the plant grows very well from June to August. Our flowers are delicate and have an intense lilac color. The flowers of the blue mallow are air dried after collecting. The blue mallow flowers are processed for tea or fragrances. In cosmetics the flowers are found in shower gels and shampoos.
The flowers of the blue mallow (blue malva) contain a blue pigment that was once used as a natural blue rinse for graying hair before chemicals were commonly used. Blue malva, like all mallows, relieves inflammation and has soothing qualities. Mostly known for countering irritation and inflammation, it is often used for lowering stomach acids and even relieving gastrointestinal disorders like indigestion or ulcers.
Blue malva is also a natural expectorant that helps to loosen and expel phlegm as well as congestion in the lungs. Despite these medicinal remedies, this fragrant flower finds its ways into conditioners, perfumes, and even shampoos for its cooling properties.
