  1. I bought a one pound bag of marshmallow root from a herb company. I put a heaping tablespoon in hot not boiling water . It has been in water for about 14 hours. I get yellow fluid but no signs of a gel. Am I doing something wrong or do I have bad product?

    1. No. Boiled Marshmallow root will not turn into a gel. The special polymer in the recipe is what creates the gel. Making a tea and using it in this recipe is akin to adding an herbal extract to a product. The actual gel is created by the polymer.
