Licorice (Wellness)


Licorice is made from an indigenous Indian root, Jeshtimudh or Mulethi. It is known to be an excellent cure for coughs, hoarseness, sore throats, acidity and asthma. Besides being a gentle laxative, it helps to freshen the breath. Put a small piece in hot water to make a soothing tea. With antiinflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties, Mulethi has been used for generations in the Ayurvedic tradition.
