Licorice Root


@Amy- The root of licorice is extremely sweet, so small amounts in herbal tea are delicious. Therapeutic doses may be overwhelmingly sweet. In capsules, the usual dose is 1-8 grams per day. Licorice is a light laxative, so work up slowly to a comfortable dose. Licorice may occasionally increase blood pressure in susceptible people, so those with a history of hypertension should avoid this herb.
