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 coarsely.

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.

    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.

      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…

      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…

      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.Thanks..

      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…

Stop taking coffee, tea and spicy foods for few days and continue taking this soup regularly till you feel better, here is the link: https://www.wildturmeric.net/2014/12/manathakkali-keerai-health-benefits-medicinal-uses.html.

      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…

      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…

      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..

    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
      December 6, 2015 / 8:26 am

      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….

      I would suggest not using athimadhuram during pregnancy as it has estrogenic properties. Though in small doses it is ok, I would still be cautious and would suggest to avoid it. You can also read the effect athimadhuram has on pregnant women here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/scotland/edinburgh_and_east/8292392.stm (copy and paste the link)

      Athimadhuram is a laxative but I would suggest not using it for more than a week continuously. I also would kindly suggest other natural herbs like kadukai which can be taken for longer duration's safely and is very effective for constipation….

      The daily recommended dosage is around 1/2 to 1 tsp per day, take it for a week and stop. It is best not to take it for long duration's of time without medical supervision……..

      Having just half a teaspoon of athimadhuram will not make our periods flow continuously Sugina. I have licorice tea some times when I have my periods and it never affects me in negative way. Try these remedies for PCOS: https://youtu.be/F6L9gbaCnMk
