Organic Licorice Root (Yashtimadhu)


Licorice root, Glycyrrhiza glabra, gets its name from two Greek words, glyks, meaning sweet, and rhiza, meaning root. The sweet-tasting roots are used as flavorings.

Known as Yashtimadhu in Ayurvedic medicine, is a traditional herbal remedy used in India and around the world. It contains glycyrrhizin that soothes skin and helps reduce inflammation and calm facial redness from Rosacea and other inflammatory skin problems. It has also been shown to brighten and even out skin tone. Licorice Root also helps inhibit histamine release due to allergic reactions that occur during Rosacea flare-ups. 

In hair care, the root is good for improving hair growth and is often used in products to help with hair loss. It helps keep the scalp moist and hydrated and is believed to help strengthen the hair shaft.
