Who is Althea?
Judith Allen named her business Althea Health Resources after Althea, one of the Greek goddesses of healing and midwifery.
Althea also refers to plants in the mallow family. Althea Officinalis is the marshmallow plant, widely used by herbalists as a demulcent. The family includes hollyhocks, hibiscus, Rose of Sharon, okra, and globe mallow. Flowers of these plants have 5 separate petals and a distinctive column of stamens surrounding the pistil.
Marshmallow root tea is recommended for urinary complaints and heartburn.
