The Story

Licorice Root: Glycyrrhiza glabra (L.)

Why Licorice Root? Licorice is a soothing and restorative herb with a special affinity for the respiratory system. It also has a sweet flavor that can help mask the taste of bitter herbs, and can add a delicious flavor to many sweet dishes.

Quality Assured: Our certified organic licorice root is responsibly sourced from Spain. This herb is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and grown without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Our experts here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally evaluate every herb through taste, touch, and smell to assure that you are receiving the best botanicals suitable for clinical use.

How to Use

Benefits: Licorice can be prepared as a decoction, fluid extract, infusion, powder, syrup, or tincture. This herb is ideal for supporting the respiratory system, specifically the mucous membranes. Additionally, licorice is useful in digestive blends to promote healthy digestion and comfortable elimination.

Cautions and Contraindications: Licorice is relatively safe, however, excessive doses can deplete the body of potassium and cause retention of sodium. Licorice should be taken before eating. Licorice is contraindicated for diabetes, hypertension, liver disorders, sever kidney insufficiency, hypertension, cardiovascular disease or hypoglycemia, and hypokalemia. Do not take if pregnant or nursing.
