Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra), has found its way into traditional medicine cabinets across the globe. In ancient Egypt, Greece, and China, licorice root was prized for its soothing properties, used to treat coughs, sore throats, and digestive ailments. Even today, licorice extracts are found in cough syrups and lozenges for their demulcent qualities, which means they coat and soothe the irritated throat tissues.

Licorice’s sweet flavor, about 10 times sweeter than sugar, has tantalized taste buds for centuries. The sweetness in licorice root comes from glycyrrhizin, a compound with anti-inflammatory and demulcent qualities. The Egyptians incorporated licorice into candies, while the Greeks used it to flavor wines and liqueurs. Today, licorice remains a popular ingredient in candies, teas, and even some savory dishes in certain parts of the world. Its distinctive taste, both sweet and slightly bitter, continues to be a divisive yet intriguing culinary element. In traditional Chinese medicine, it is believed to strengthen the qi, or vital energy, and support overall health. Black licorice candy is a familiar example, but licorice root is also a key ingredient in red vines and even some licorice-flavored teas. Beyond sweets, licorice root lends its unique flavor to savory dishes as well. In some parts of the world, licorice root is used to brew tea, and in others, it is included in broths and stews.

Licorice sticks are often used to help curb smoking the chewed tip of the stick can be used as a natural toothbrush.

In European folk magic, licorice root was sometimes used in love spells and rituals for protection. Its association with sweetness likely contributed to its use in love charms, while its sturdy rootstock might have symbolized strength and resilience in protective magic. It is sometimes used in love spells or rituals intended to bring joy and abundance. It is also believed to have protective properties and may be included in amulets or charms worn for safety and good health.
