About Licorice Tincture: Licorice root is sweet to the tongue and a uniquely valuable herb used through the ages to add balance and synergy to herbal formulas. Adaptogenic in action with a unique affinity for the endocrine system/adrenal glands of the body, Licorice builds resilience towards stress and encourages balance from the effects of past stress. This root helps to bring vitality and strength where there may be depletion or weakness.
The moistening and soothing qualities of Licorice root support the health and rejuvenation of the immune, respiratory, and digestive systems, especially when there is dryness or stagnation from lack of moisture present. Licorice supports liver function (bitter and sweet), dry coughs, digestion, and regular elimination and detoxification. Licorice blends well in small amounts with many herbs, especially herbs that are naturally drying in nature, helping to harmonize herbal formulas.
