This listing is for one bottle of tinctured Licorice roots (Glycyrrhiza glabra).
The price includes free USPS first class shipping in the United States.
It was made as a 1:3 ratio of dried Licorice roots in 40% certified organic cane alcohol. We find that the licorice tastes sweeter after it's been dried.
Licorice has been used by many as an anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-oxidant herb. Some use it to treat coughs or help manage blood sugar levels. It has been used in beauty products as it is thought to tighten skin and promotes hair growth. Some also use it to help nourish the adrenals. Licorice had been shown to block 11-B-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, an enzyme that is responsible for the conversion of cortisol to the inactive cortisone. When Licorice is taken in small doses, it can be used to help maintain cortisol levels, which play an important factor for those that need to support adrenal hormone production and maintain healthy inflammatory pathways.
What sets Reverence Botanicals apart from most other herbal companies is that we are small family business crafting extractions in micro batches with herbs that we grow or ethically wildcraft ourselves. We do not buy dried herbs from other sources. The extractions we make are lovingly made with freshly harvested plants. Our gardens are grown using organic and biodynamic methods. No harsh chemicals, pesticides or fungicides are used in our farming practices. Our farm is located in the pristine South Toe River Valley, deep in the Pisgah National Forest of Western NC. We are very remote, high in the mountains among the headwaters of South Toe River, and far away from city smog. We have an artesian well upon our beautiful land and it is that pure clean water that we use in our formulas. No chlorine or fluoride is added in our water. Reverence Botanicals extractions sit for 6 weeks in certified organic menstrum. We do not use percolation tincture methods. Our family has struggled with tick borne illness and we know how very important it is to use the best quality, pure, straight from the Earth ingredients for making medicine.

Safety: Please seek the help of a knowledgeable health practitioner who can help guide you on your journey to optimal health. Your practitioner can help you choose an Licorice dose that is appropriate for your specific constitution. Many practitioner will advise starting with a small dose and slowly increasing the dose as tolerated.

High doses of Licorice have been known to lower potassium levels. It is advised to monitor potassium levels and blood pressure while using Licorice. Licorice may lower blood glucose levels. Long-term use of licorice at high doses can cause hypoglycemia. People who take insulins or glucose-lowering medications should use licorice under the supervision of their doctors.
