Licorice Root (Glycyrrhiza glabra)
Have you ever heard the saying, ‘There are two kinds of people in the world: licorice loathers and licorice lovers’? Neither have we – since we just made it up – but it’s not far off from the truth. Whether you’re a licorice licker by nature (or fennel, aniseed, or any of its other tasty cousins) or not, licorice is big medicine and deserves to be used for so much more than stick candy.
As for the dirt on why, how, and when to use this herb, it’s up to you to hit the books / browsers and do a little sleuthing of your own. We’ll be here for you if you need a hand – or an herb – to hold.
