Liquorice roots mystical healing powers.
Liquorice root was used as a cure-all in many ancient civilisations, from Egypt to China, it was believed to hold mystic healing powers. The liquorice plant grows naturally in the Mediterranean, but it is also cultivated in places such as Russia, the Middle east and of course here in the UK.
Medical properties of liquorice roots.
The root is known for its antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antidepressant properties, to name just a few of its healing powers.
However, many of my customers enjoy liquorice root for its nostalgic properties. “I haven’t seen that since I was a young lad”. They will happily chew away on the root for old times’ sake, however I do often wonder how many actually enjoy doing so. Personally, I can’t stand the stuff however it does hold significance for a lot of people (maybe, of a certain age) chewing away on the liquorice root for what seems like an eternity.
