Hot, dry smoky conditions call for soothing, cooling, moistening medicine of a slippery demulcent. Marshmallow cold infusion can be helpful sipped throughout the day for respiratory protection & healing.
Simply add 3-4 Tbsp of marshmallow (Althea officinalis) root to a small muslin bag or cheese cloth, suspend from the top of a quart jar, fill with cold water and allow to steep for several hours or all day. Poor into a cup to drink. Continue to add more cold water to the quart jar to extend the infusion. Drink this subtly sweet gooey demulcent water to soothe your irritated, hot & dry throat, lungs, eyes, and all mucus membrane tissues.
Inexpensive, easy self care during this time of overwhelming fire & smoky skies.
