Musk Mallow was an important leaf vegetable in pre-Han Dynasty China and widely cultivated. The leaves and seeds can be eaten raw or cooked. Leaves added to salads add a pleasant, mild flavor. The seeds have a pleasant nutty taste. In herbal medicine it is considered a demulcent which aids in eliminating irritation and mild inflammation. Mallow has been used as a food and medicine since ancient Greece and Rome. It was considered helpful as an anti-inflammatory agent for the skin, gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts. Major uses of mallow are as a tea for dry cough and sore throats, or as a topical, gelatinous application for dermatitis. Mallow is also used for treating renal disorders, retention of fluids, diarrhea and frequent thirst. For people with whooping cough, the root is used to make them vomit. The leaves and stems have digestive properties and are given to women in late pregnancy.

According to test tube studies reported by Providence Health Services, one carbohydrate in mallow was shown to inhibit the complement cascade. The complement cascade has been implicated in autoimmune disorders and cases of chronic inflammation. The studies also showed that the seeds contain a polysaccharide which stimulates the white blood cells. In another test tube study, crude powder was shown to have anticancer effects.
