    Posted by on 24th Apr 2017

    I craved this when I was pregnant with all of my children and now I know why...it calmed my stomach and helped balance the yeast in my gut. Now I am drinking it and loving it. I use it on my skin as well. My face loves it...First I make a tea with only 1 teaspoon of the powder and put it in a small pan of water. I brew it at a low heat for 12 minutes and then let it set. I then wait for about an hour and drink the liquid from the pan...I save to rest of the brime and smear it on my skin...it leaves it very smooth and soft...loving it...I do drink the tea for it has so many benefits...my sinuses are all dried up...my lungs are clear to where I can breathe like a human being and my skin is looking better every day...loving it!!!

  2. The powder is beautiful 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Sep 2016

    I received my licorice root powder this morning. Super fast shipping, just like my previous order. The powder is beautiful and I cannot wait to use it. This shop seems to have the highest quality products, produced with love. My previous purchase was lemon balm, which I'm still in the process of making an oil with. It's coming along wonderfully. The seller always returns my messages promptly, is very sweet, and informative. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SHOP;) *UPDATE* I just used this powder in a mask with oatmeal, goat's milk, kaolin clay, zinc oxide, honey, and rose hydrosol. It was divine❤️.
