Licorice is the root of the plant (Glycyrrhiza glabra) that is native to Asia and parts of southern Europe. The common purpose that licorice is used includes being conscripted as a flavour for the harmful cigarette. It is also being used in herbal medications etc for a number of digestive conditions (colic, heartburn, stomach ulcer etc).

Because of its anti-inflammatory property, the licorice has also been studied and shown to reduce acne-causing bacteria. At the same time, licorice also contains substances that could inhibit the stimulation of an enzyme to start melanin production, meaning that it is also effective against the ravages of aging, hyperpigmentation and liver spots.
