Licorice Root has a wonderful flavor, and is helpful with coughs and sore throats.  It is also outstanding for adrenal exhaustion.  It is also used to enhance the flavors of other herbal tea blends.  Health benefits include:

 

  • Is a great expectorant. It can be used to help promote mucous production, and is a great treatment for coughs, respiratory infections, and other congestive issues.
  • Stimulates the adrenal glands, which helps the body to cope with stress.  Use over a period of weeks or months to help stimulate the adrenals.

    I purchased this root as the tea version is so very expensive. This makes great tea - so much nicer than the 'bag' variety which has other flavours in. The cost is so much nicer too! Thank you for this - I love it and will keep coming back
