Hello my name is Lilly and I am making videos about primitive living skills, survival, bushcraft, camping gear and prepping. I consider myself being a modern hunter-gatherer who wants to live as close as possible with mother nature and right now I am in the process of learning how to live off the land and thrive in the wilderness.

Video Transcription

hi guys my name is Lily and today I want to talk about licorice and unfortunately it doesn't grow here in my area it comes from Russia Asia and Mediterranean licorice has been 8 leaves which are 7 to 15 centimetres long and the flowers are purple sometimes a little bit bluish but the plant is not the important thing the important thing is the root and the word licorice is derived from the Greek which means sweet rude one of the components of licorice is clear Essene which is a sweetener it's 30 to 50 times sweeter than sugar and that's why the food industry is using it for Candace but it's not also interesting for food but also as medicine because Chris Harrison has demonstrated some very efficient effects on the human body ok here I have a small list what glossary seen is good for its anti-inflammatory its antiviral its anti alter organic its antibacterial mucolytic and hepatoprotective which means that it's protecting the liver now what's the application of licorice you can take the root and make a tea with it and it will help against all kinds of you know stomach aches caused by too much acidity it will help against gastritis it will also help against ulcers so it heals off ulcers faster and if you have problems with your respiratory tract with your lungs for example procerus or cold it will act as an expectorant licorice can come with some side effects if you use it for a very long time and excessively it can cause a high blood pressure it will probably cause edema and it increases the sodium in the blood but dehydration and it reduces potassium in the blood so that's something that can happen but usually if you take normal amounts you shouldn't have any side effects I personally use liquor is when I have a cold

like today and I usually mix it with other herbs like today have contain and thyme which are great for a cold - and yeah I just use one piece of licorice and it will sweeten the entire cup of tea and temperature-wise I always keep the temperature a little bit lower than boiling because boiling destroys a lot of white amines and components in the herbs so if it's simmering like that it's just perfect for the tea yeah it definitely tastes sweet and you don't need any sugar in your tea if you use licorice it can definitely help you out if you find yourself in a survival situation and you get sick but also for your everyday life it can help you like I have this tea always at home and if I get sick I make myself a licorice tea so guys I want to thank you for watching if you want to see other herbal medicine videos check out these videos here at the side follow me on Facebook Twitter and Instagram and stay tuned till next time bye
