Organic mallow – a gentle, floral protector
This flower is a treat for the eye: with its evenly arranged, delicately patterned flowers and its intense feminine colours, wild mallow is a real natural beauty in the lavera plant world.
Wild mallow (Malva sylvestris) belongs to the mallow family. The plant can reach a height of up to 1.4 m, and blooms from May to September.
It was cultivated for centuries in monastery gardens as a medicinal plant and its healing effects for ailments such as respiratory diseases, insect bites and inflammation of the mouth and throat quickly became known. It grows best in sunny places with dry, nutrient-rich soils (e.g. on the edges of fields, embankments or fallow land).
Its extracts can sooth and calm stressed skin.
