Licorice is used both in Hamams (Turkish baths) in the Middle-east, and in the ancient Indian art of healing, Ayurveda, in which it goes by the Sanskrit name Yashtimadu. In Asia, Licorice is primarily used as medicine and is common in both internal and external treatment. It is used in hand creams and other external medicines for treatment of inflammatory afflictions, among other things. In the Nordics, Licorice as a medicine is mostly found as ingredient and aroma for cough drops.
At Queen of Licorice, we are proud to present a unique line of spa products of the highest quality, based on an ecological foundation. All of our products use raw licorice s as the active ingredient, and on top of that, they have been balanced with individual ingredients and enhancing, fresh scents. Everything from tea tree, coconut, peppermint and rosemary to refreshing eucalyptus.
