    Great product

    Excellent, love this! Will be buying more. Great in a shampoo, will be trying it for a lotion as well. Also made a cough syrup with it with honey and ginger, worked well.

    Amazing good quality

    I’ve been buying marshmallow powder from Essentially Natural from the start of my business. I love the quality and the quick delivery. In my opinion marshmallow root powder is superior to the leaves because you truly see the mucilage with the powder. It gives an amazing slip to conditioners. It’s a fave forever!
