Licorice

Glycyrrhiza glabra

aka: Yashti Madu

Properties and Uses:
Demulcent, expectorant, laxative, restorative and stimulant to the adrenal glands. Licorice builds the adrenals and induces the production of cortisone and aldosterone. It is one of the best-known herbs for hypoglycemics. Its demulcent and anti-inflammatory qualities makes licorice particularly beneficial for ulcers. It is also effective for liver related problems. Chinese Licorice (Glycyrrhiza uralensis) is slightly stronger, and usually appears in cleaned slices.

Caution: Licorice Root should be avoided by people with high blood pressure. It contains natural sugars which may disturb the sugar balance of some diabetics, so it is sometimes processed to remove the sugars, i.e. "Deglycyrrhinated Licorice - DGL."

Herbie's Herbs' Tinctures

Herbie’s Herbs tinctures are alcohol-based preparations macerated in 50% distilled cane sugar alcohol at a 1:2 ratio. Read more here

Compared to other methods, alcohol helps extract nearly all active constituents from a herb yielding stronger tinctures that require a lower dose to attain beneficial effects.

Alcohol eliminates the growth of bacteria and mold while preserving the valuable constituents resulting in a much longer shelf life.
