5 Amazing Health Benefits & Uses of Athimadhuram Tea/

Mulethi Tea + Recipe

Licorice tea/ Athimadhuram tea/ Mulethi tea has wonderful health benefits. 1. For Digestion- Licorice root has

been used for centuries to treat various ailments that involves digestive tract, as it helps to protect the stomach

lining. 2. For Cough- Licorice tea is amazing home remedy for cough and since it is sweet by itself, it is easier to

make the children drink it. However this herb should not be taken over the limit. The maximum dosage is 3 to 4

gm of this root, enough for one cup of tea. 3. For Menstrual cramps- It also relieves menstrual cramps as it has
antispasmodic and anti inflammatory proprieties. 4. For Constipation- It is also a laxative and can relieve a

person, who suffers from constipation. Take this tea daily for 2 to 3 days to get good relief from constipation. 5.

For Arthritis- Licorice has anti inflammatory properties, so it may help people who are suffering from arthritis.

However there are some side effects to licorice tea. People with blood pressure and pregnant women should

avoid this herb. Please treat this licorice tea as a medicine and don't consume it regularly. Over consumption of

licorice tea might lead to edema and effect normal bowel movements. I mainly use licorice tea to treat cough.

Licorice tea is very sweet by itself, but we always add a bit of palm candy to it. To make this licorice decoction,

first pound the licorice root and break it into pieces.  Boil water with palm candy. Once the water comes to a

roaring boil and the palm candy has dissolved, add the licorice root. Let it boil for 3 to 4 minutes before

straining it. Your licorice tea made the Indian way, with palm candy is ready!    

1. Take licorice root (the one you see in the main picture) in a mortar and pestle and pound it

2. This is palm candy and it is very rich in vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
3. Boil water in pan along with palm candy.

4. Once the palm candy has dissolved and the water has come to a rolling boil, add the
pounded licorice root and let it boil for 3 to 4 minutes. The longer you boil, the sweeter the tea
will be.

5. Strain and your sweet licorice tea is ready!

We always use palm candy for licorice root tea recipe, but if you don't have it then just
skip it and make the tea.

If you have health problems, don't use licorice tea without your doctors approval.

Don't drink this tea continuously for more than a week.

This treatment gives good relief for throat infections and cough.

For treating menstrual cramps, have a warm cup of this tea once in the morning to get
good relief.

Always drink this tea in an empty stomach, for it to be effective.

IPlease inform me whether Adhimaduram is good for diabetic

Ramya Venkateshwaran 24 September 2014 at 05:04

Adhimadhuram is good for diabetics, as it controls the blood sugar, but it will not cure it. If you are take
diabetic medication, consult your doctor if you are planning to take adhimadhuram on a daily basis,
since it reduces the blood sugar levels.


Anonymous 11 July 2015 at 01:59

hi madam..
what are all the additional substances which can be added with adhimadhuram to reduce the
migrane problems and to decrease the blood sugar levels

Ramya Venkateshwaran 15 July 2015 at 09:31

We use adhimadhuram maily for cold and cough. I would suggest you try nochi leaf steam for
migraine as my cousin found good relief with it. And for reducing blood sugar levels, try
fenugreek tea, nilavembu or giloy. They have all been proven to reduce blood sugar levels, you
can find information about them in the blog...


Sasat 9 February 2015 at 18:42

Ramya.. What are the other ways to use athimathuram root.


Ramya Venkateshwaran 10 February 2015 at 00:50

Hi Sasat,
You can use licorice root for brushing the teeth. If soaked in milk and ground to a paste
makes an effective dandruff hair pack. You can also chew on the piece to get good relief from
cough immediately...

Diya 19 August 2015 at 10:33

Hi ramya.. Can we use athimathuram to increase breast milk.. Pls suggest..


Ramya Venkateshwaran 25 August 2015 at 09:38

Hi Diya, I would suggest not using athimathuram when you are breast feeding because there
is contradicting information whether athimadhuram increases breast milk or not. Also it
should definitely not be had in large amounts and the dosage is also important so I would
suggest not using athimadhuram on a daily basis during breast feeding...

Ramya Venkateshwaran 25 August 2015 at 10:24

Hi Diya, I would suggest not using athimathuram during breast feeding as there is
contradicting information on whether it increases breast milk or not. Athimathuram's safety
for breast feeding mothers is also dose dependent so I would suggest not taking it regularly
during breast feeding...

Hi Ramya Ma'm,
I bought athimadhuram and vasambu each 250 gm thinking it could be powdered easily in a mixi. But it
did not work. So I am keeping it in sun for making it crisp. Then i saw your blog. It is good to ask a
knowledgeable person about powdering it.

Instead of buying ready-made powder of above 2, I myself want to do it and store it so that it would be
very useful and less time-consuming when we want.

Shops sell vasambu powder in its original colour. Is it possible to have it done at home? that is without
burning and blackening vasambu.

Athimadhuram also very hard to grind in mixi. How to do it?

I want both for acute dandruff problem, cold, cough.

Kindly enlighten me.



Ramya Venkateshwaran 19 September 2015 at 10:30

Pound both athimadhuram and vasambu to small pieces using a mortar and pestle. Sun dry
till crisp spread on a plate, covered with a thin mesh to prevent dust settling. While they are
still crisp from sun drying, powder in a dry mixer, sieve and store...

much should I give her, pls suggest me .... Is this medician help me or not .....



Ramya Venkateshwaran 9 October 2015 at 01:18

Boil 5 gram of licorice in 1/4 cup of water till it reduces in half and give it to her for 3 to 4 days.
Since it is sweet she will have it readily. Licorice is very very good for treating all the above
said problems. If the tonsillitis is painful, you can have her suck on a small piece of the
athimadhuram root for sometime too. Try it and let me know how she feels...

Ramya Venkateshwaran 9 October 2015 at 01:48

Also try to use between 2 to 5 grams and never above 5gms of athimadhuram per day for her
as overdosing is harmful...

Hi, For ulcers, you can take this athimadthuram tea in empty stomach for a week.
Manathakkali keerai is also wonderful for ulcers. Stop taking coffee, tea and spicy foods for
few days and continue taking this soup regularly till you feel better, here is the link:

Hello mam,
Will Athimadhuram help in treating liver related problems? Since my father has cirrhosis am asking this..


Ramya Venkateshwaran 27 October 2015 at 09:47

Hello, Athimadhuram is said to help in liver problems in a study conducted, you can read
about it here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22308054. But since licorice has bad side
effects if taken continuously, liver treatment using licorice has to be done under the
supervision of a medical professional....

shall I continue this? Is vitex suitable to me?
shall I take licorice along with vitex?

Please help me mam.



Ramya Venkateshwaran 27 October 2015 at 10:50

Usually we only use the vitex leaf steam for sinus and licorice should not be taken for longer
duration especially since you have low blood pressure. I would suggest ashwagandha herb as
it is very effective for thyroid related problems but please consult an ayurvedic physician for
the correct dosage before taking it on a daily basis...

Ramya Venkateshwaran 8 November 2015 at 07:39

Hello, athimadhuram is said to help in female fertility because it has estrogenic effects. It is
said to regulate irregular periods and help women with pcos. But using athimadhuram for long
duration's should be done with caution especially by people with high blood pressure or by
people taking certain medications regularly. I would suggest consulting an ayurvedic doctor
for the correct dosage if you are planning to take it for long periods of time (more than a
week). You can buy pure athimadhuram roots from nattumarundhu kadai...

but not in tea format... i just swallowing pinch of adhimaturam in times of having high (dry)cough... pls
tell what i have to do now?


Ramya Venkateshwaran 21 November 2015 at 20:50

Athimadhuram is very very good for treating dry cough. I would suggest taking it once a day in
the form of tea (using 5 gm of licorice root and not more than that) like mentioned without the
sugar in an empty stomach for 2 to 3 days. Please let me know how you feel after 3 days of
taking the tea. But if you are having blood pressure, I would suggest not using this remedy..


Zodiac 24 November 2015 at 03:50

Ramya .. this is a good post. Need you advise on one of the things that my maternal uncle (who was an
Ayurvedic Physician) used to tell us in our childhood about 'athimadhuram'... Apparently, it is very good
for singing. I mean, if you are a singer and you want your throat to be very soft and smooth (especially in
high pitch), he suggested, you should eat Athimadhuran everyday. Is it a correct observation? Can you
confirm please?


Ramya Venkateshwaran 6 December 2015 at 00:26

Yes, athimadhuram is highly recommended for singers as it literally treats all the problems of
the throat. Even personally I only reach out to athimadhuram first for all my throat issues :).
But I would suggest using athimadhuram only for treating and not on a daily basis for long
periods of time....


sunny 9 December 2015 at 06:30

Hi Ramya,
Is there any side effects in usage of athimadhuram. will there be any issues while planning.


Ramya Venkateshwaran 19 December 2015 at 07:41

There is no side effects of athimadhuram for fertility in fact it is said to help in fertility. But it
should not be overdosed and should not be had for long periods of time especially pressure
patients should be very cautious when using this herb...

Though athimadhuram is useful for obesity (you can read about the study that proved this use
here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24687644), I would suggest not using licorice
root for longer periods of time. For itching applying turmeric and tulsi paste on the body will

Ramya Venkateshwaran 14 January 2016 at 20:08

Hi, I am very very sorry for the late reply. Licorice has been proven to be very effective for
pcos, you can read about the study done proving the use here:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15579328. But one word of caution, licorice tea should
not be consumed for more than a week if you have blood pressure. I would suggest taking no
more than a cup of licorice tea daily for 2 to 3 weeks even if you don't have blood pressure
and then stop.....

Ramya Venkateshwaran 14 January 2016 at 20:13

You can mix it with regular tea but I would suggest using licorice root powder as a medicine
and not as a daily drink. The daily recommended dosage is a tea made from 4 to 5 grams of
licorice root or 1/2 tsp of licorice root powder....

Namaste Sir, Licorice root tea when used in hair pack treats hair problems like dandruff and
promotes new growth but I am not sure whether it helps in baldness as I could not find any
evidence supporting this claim. I even found a study that proves the ineffectiveness of the
extract on androgenic alopecia (baldness), here is the study:

Yes, athimadhuram has always been used for treating scalp problems including grey hair
though I don't know how effective it is for treating premature greying. But to use for scalp, you
can mix 1 part henna powder, 1/2 part licorice powder and an egg into a paste and use it as a
hair mask...

I generally don't reuse the athimadhuram roots. I only take a small piece, pound it well and boil
till the color changes that way the the tea is fully infused and I throw the used root away. But if
you are only infusing the root, I guess you can reuse it...

more than that and if you have high blood pressure please don't take athimadhuram tea...

for longer duration's safely and is very effective for constipation....
