Like many natural remedies, licorice has a long history of boosting health. The name refers to the root of the plant known as Glycyrrhiza glabra, and while some consider it a weed it’s actually a highly useful botanical. In ancient Egypt it was drunk in tea form and a cure-all remedy – some was even found in King Tutankhamun’s tomb. Later it was imported to China and it still remains an important part of Chinese medicinal tradition.

Licorice’s healthy properties

One of the popular uses for licorice is to soothe gastrointestinal conditions. Extract from licorice root can help speed up how quickly the stomach lining is repaired and help maintain a healthy balance. This action is thanks to the glycyrrhizic acid, which is both anti-inflammatory and immune boosting. It’s an excellent remedy for conditions like gastritis, heartburn and stomach ulcers.

 

A soothing stress reliever

Another action of the licorice root is that it stimulates the adrenal glands, which in turns helps to deliver a healthy level of cortisol – the stress hormone – to the body. People who are under a lot of pressure tend to produce high levels of adrenaline and cortisol in response to the stress and over time this leads to a feeling of being burnt out and exhausted. But supplementing with licorice can help support the adrenal glands by regulating cortisol production.

 

Licorice and skincare

Licorice may be a tasty treat but it’s also beneficial to the skin when used externally. Blending licorice root into topical lotions and creams means its antioxidant powers can help calm and sooth certain inflammatory skin conditions, including eczema, sunburn and redness. It is also believed to help relieve itching to the skin and swelling.

 

Licorice and Gin production

Licorice was used many years ago in gin production. It has a flavour very similar to anise or fennel but is sweeter and so was traditionally used as a sweetening agent. Today gin producers still turn to this root for both its distinctive colour and to add sweetness. Even once distilled the flavour remains characteristically woody, and it also adds an oily feel to the drink.
