Licorice Licorice is one of the most widely used medicinal plants. The chief medicinal action of licorice is as a demulcent and emollient. Its soothing and anti-allergy properties make it excellent in throat and chest complaints and it is a very common ingredient in throat pastilles and cough mixtures. Use as a tincture or drink as a tea. Do not take if you have heart disease or high blood pressure.
