Cosme-Phytami™ Liquorice

Add to favourites
Liquorice was named by the Greeks glycyrrhiza, based on the words ‘glukos’ : sugar and ‘riza’ : root. Originating from the East of the Mediterranean basin and Western Asia (depending on the variety), the earliest traces were to be found in the tombs of the Pharaohs. Liquorice was recommended to solve breathing problems and treat wounds in association with honey. In Asia, liquorice is an absolute joy for doctors who prescribe it to treat a great number of ills. Its root, a sweetener and with the flavour of aniseed, is today the basis of a wide range of confectionery. Children enjoy chewing 'Liquorice sticks' because of its sweet, pleasant taste. In India, Liquorice is a traditional herb used in Ayurvedic medicine. Cosmetically liquorice root extracts are used due to their anti-inflammatory effects in skin and hair care and for bleaching treatments. Liquorice symbolizes softness and sweetness.
