Licorice root has been used by various cultures for thousands of years. Pieces of the root were discovered in King Tutankhamun's burial tomb, presumably so that the young pharaoh could enjoy the traditional Egyptian beverage Mai sus, which would ensure safe passage to the next word.

Today, next to ginger, licorice is the most widely used herb in China. In powdered form, licorice root is most often encapsulated as a dietary supplement.

licorice root

Licorice is a perennial member of the legume family valued for its spicy aroma and flavor, as well as for its soothing effects on the mucosal lining of the gastrointestinal tract. In China, the root of the plant is used in cooking and to counter food poisoning. In the west, the herb is used as a filler and to mask the unpleasant taste of other medicines.

This species of licorice is native to southern and eastern Europe where the herb has been used to address respiratory and digestive issues for thousands of years. By the 13th century, so much licorice was being imported into England from other parts of Europe that King Edward the First imposed a tax on incoming shipments to fund needed repairs to London Bridge.
