Herb of the week: Glycyyrhiza glabra

Otherwise known as Licorice and is one of my favourite herbs, both for its versatility and for the taste. Glycyyrhiza is an amazing anti-inflammatory used to treat conditions such as allergies, autoimmune disease and soothing the gastrointestinal tract. Additionally, Glycyyrhiza is an amazing adrenal tonic indicated to support adrenal insufficiency, as well as providing support to the liver and kidneys. I am a big fan of licorice tea, especially after dinner when I want to soothe my digestion before bed.
