1 teaspoon licorice powder
1 cup boiling water
Mix together, then drink.
This tea will break up and loosen mucus, so it is excellent for relieving nagging coughs and stuffy noses. It will also relax spasms of the bronchial tract, such as those characteristic of asthma and hay fever. It coats the lining of the stomach to relieve indigestion and flatulence. It acts as a natural cleanser in the intestines, activating bowel movements.
WARNING: Because licorice has an anti-diuretic property, it should not be used by anyone with kidney problems or high blood pressure. However, anyone should limit themselves to three cups of licorice tea daily.
