Liquorice / ginger / rose / marshmallow root
Licorice root (Glycyrrhiza glabra) has been used for many years as a general body tonic. Licorice has been found to in particular tonify the adrenal glands, which may help your body to cope in times of stress. Licorice aids in the digestive processes by soothing inflammation in the stomach and intestines, creating a healing barrier. Licorice is also a known great anti-inflammatory, and has a beautiful sweet flavour which does not interrupt blood sugar levels or insulin.
Ginger (Zingiber is a stimulating tonic for the digestive system. It has been found to reduce cramping, gas and nausea. Ginger has been indicated for motion sickness and morning sickness in pregnancy for hundreds of years. Ginger increases peripheral circulation which increase blood flow, helps to detoxify the body from toxins, and stimulates oxygen transport to the body’s cells. In Western Herbal Medicine it is also used as an anti-inflammatory throughout the body, and to increase immunity to prevent invasion of bacteria and viruses.
Rose (Rosa) is fragrant, fruity and packed with vitamin C and antioxidants. This means it scavenges free radicals that cause cellular damage.
Marshmallow root (Althea officinalis) has a great ability to heal and protect mucous membranes such as the stomach and gastrointestinal lining. This is due to its properties of containing a demulcent action. A demulcent is an agent that forms a soothing film over a mucous membrane, relieving minor pain and inflammation.
