COMMON NAME  
Standardized: Mallow, Blue Mallow

BOTANICAL NAME    
Malva sylvestris  
Plant Family: Malvaceae

OVERVIEW    
Malva sylvestris is a species of the mallow genus Malva in the family of Malvaceae and is considered to be the type species for the genus. Known as Blue Mallow to English-speaking Europeans, it acquired the common names of cheeses, high mallow and tall mallow (mauve des bois by the French) as it migrated from its native home in Western Europe, North Africa and Asia through the English-speaking world. M. sylvestris is a vigorously healthy plant with showy flowers of bright mauve-purple, with dark veins; a handsome plant, often standing 3 or 4 feet (1 m) high and growing freely in fields, hedgerows and in fallow fields.

CONSTITUENTS      
M. sylvestris contains malvin and malonylmalvin. It also contains the naphtoquinone malvone A, which is also a phytoalaxin.

PARTS USED   
Dried flowers, Petals

TYPICAL PREPARATIONS   
M. sylvestris has been used medicinally since ancient times, and is still used in modern phytotherapy. Mucilage is present in many of the Malvaceae family including M. sylvestris, especially the fruit. The seeds are used internally in a decoction or herbal tea as a demulcent and diuretic, and the leaves made into poultices as an emollient for external applications. Mallow can also be taken internally for its laxative effect. Mallow is also very popular as ingredient in soaps, bath bombs, candles, potpourri, confetti and dyes.
