Liquorice has been used for centuries to cure a large range of ailments, from easing congestion and sore throats, to healing stomach ulcers, lessening the effects of PMS and menopause, and promoting liver function.
Liquorice root can act as a soothing agent and expectorant, which could make it useful for reducing phlegm and other upper-respiratory symptoms, says the UMMC, such as sore throat and coughing. Licorice root is also used to treat ulcer symptoms, canker sores and digestive problems, such as acid reflux and indigestion.
It is appears in historical documents worldwide, from early Chinese medicine to Ancient Egypt. Liquorice is still used as an ingredient in the popular Middle Eastern drink erk-soos, supposed to settle the stomach, and is re-emerging as a popular ingredient with mainstream tea companies, thanks to its soothing qualities.

I love this stuff! I had no idea what I would use it for, but now I have fun experimenting with it. My favourite way to have it, so far, is in banana
ice-cream, i.e. blended frozen bananas. But I have to admit I eat it straight out of the jar too! Its super strong, so the tiny jar will last me long...but Ill definitely repurchase once I run out!

I love liquorice, but most commercial liquorice products contain gelatine which I can eat as a vegetarian. Now I can have it all the time. Its really tasty, and the texture is so fine that you can sprinkle it on anything. I will definitely keep buying this.
Organic licorice, who knew!

I was pleasantly surprised by this product. Its taste is an intense licorice and it is naturally a bit sweet.
Its excellent. The packaging suggest it is an ideal topping to ice cream and can be used in baking. I use it on sweet pancakes instead of the cinnamon with sugar. Its delicious.
