Althaea officinalisA RELAXING
Althea Root is a herbaceous plant with velvety leaves and small pinkish-white flowers. Its scientific name comes from the Greek althaino, meaning “to heal.” Naturally occurring in temperate regions, it favors wet environments and is frequently found on riverbanks or near the sea.
Since ancient times, Althea Root has been used in medicinal preparations for coughing and sore throats, as well as to make sweet confections.
It is traditionally used in medicine, but seldom in cosmetics.
