  1. Hi, great information on licorice powder. Can I mix it in my daily mosturiser? Please advise? Many thanks. Jatinder (UK)

    • Hi!

      Yes you may add it to your daily moisturiser. However, in the moisturizer licorice oil may work better πŸ™‚


    • Hey!
      Yes you can use Licorice powder of any brand you trust. Absolutely! you can add it to any homemade DIY skincare you like πŸ™‚

  3. Can you tell me a Liquorice powder pack for underarm whitening as well please??? The skin around my armpit is dark and I wanna lighten it I have been trying lemon from past 4 months but it’s just not a HELP AT ALL :((

      • Will it work if I just lemon juice add and tomatoes with the powder and make a paste?? And how long does it take for the armpits to get lighter???

        • Hi Hifza,

          Tomatoes and lemon juice are too acidic, it is not advised for armpits! You might end with darker armpits. So please don’t use straight lemon.

          You can dilute the mixture by adding aloevera and oats. But lemon only 2 drops not more. Armpits can take upto a month of 3-4 times a week application, to show results.

  4. Hello from Sweden!
    I pray to god you can help me!
    I have red pronomen skin,no acne.
    Licorice in a serum,and facecreams is what is absolutely most effective in reducing the redness.
    My question:can i buy Licorice root powder from herbstore(that is designer for using in food) and mixtrat in my facecream???
    Or doesnt have to be some sort of liquid licorice??
    Cause this is getting expensive,and if i could mix myself it would save me money,cause im far from rich.
    It would really mean the world to me ifyou could be so nice and answer.
    Have a WONDERFUL day,best wishes Sasha

    • Hi Sasha!
      Thank you for stopping by πŸ™‚ ABSOLUTELY YES YOU CAN! Yes, liquid licorice gets expensive and the root powder works fine as well; though not as fast as the liquid one but this will work at a slow pace. You can also mix it in your face masks πŸ˜€

      • Thank you sooooo much ,you ate an Angel!
        Iwill order NOW licorice powder that ismeant to be in food from supplement store and just put that in my serum or facecream.
        Again,thank you so so much for the answer.
        By the way,liquid licorice root in supplement store,isthat ok putting in face cream .
        I mean does it have to be purified somehowwith alcohol in it?
        Have a splendid summer from Sasha in Sweden

        • Alwaysssss welcome :* :* :* I haven’t really used liquid licorice from food stores.. but your creams also might have some amount of required preservatives in it so may be its ok to use it. What I would suggest is use it fresh every time. So may be you can mix a few drops with your cream every night before using it!? Guess this should be better πŸ™‚ you too have a super fun day! Love :*

          • Thank you!!!!!
            You are so kind hearted!
            Avery special woman.
            I will do asyou say,starting forst with powder,then try just a feeew licorice drops.
            I saw the onewehad in Sweden had alcohol licorice and something else in it i cant remember.
            But its a superb Idea,taking my facecream putting fewdropsand mix it together in my palm.
            I wish you get more credit and more recognition.
            Cause far from everyoneanswer fast and at all likeyou do.
            You have a fan in me!!!
            Love andhapinessto you,bless you.Xo Sasha

    • Hi Santoshi.. If you are blessed with a wheatish complexion since birth, it means it is genetics and in fact you should be proud of it πŸ™‚ But yes this will improve your complexion and your skin texture.. You can also add pure homemade orange peel powder for added benefits πŸ™‚

      • much quantity of orange peel powder should b used??and how to cook oats in water??they should b cooked in hot water or just mixed in cold water???my face hands and feet are 3 shades darker than my rest of body…i tried many remedies but they all failed to improve my face complexion:(

        • Hi!
          Orange peel powder 1 tsp. Cook oats in water over a flame till they are nice and soft. Switch off flame and let it cool (Keep a little water extra while switching off the flame, since one cold oats will thicken) Once cool, use it in your mask πŸ™‚ Use this regularly; i’m sure it will work πŸ˜€

  5. I have been using licorice powder nd fuller’d earth in
    equal amount mix with raw milk of india Cow.
    Is it right process?

    • Hi Rakesh,

      Yes the process is absolutely correct πŸ™‚ But try adding oatmeal to it.. it will improve the benefits you get :))

    • Hi.. Yes you can apply cream .. No problem in that. DO NOT use soap to wash your face πŸ™‚ Also, you only need to rinse your face with water no need to use face wash as well πŸ™‚ Avoid foundation if you can, but if you have to go out then no problem..

  6. I have tried it,but I feel diziness after using this pack..may be that’s because of the licorice fumes,is anyone else also out there facing similar problem?

  7. woow great beauty tips i like almost every thing. Kindly advice if people with dark skin can use this products. my worry is that some of the product may not be found in our continent, pls advice

    Regards, Mariam

    • Hi Mariam,

      Glad to see you around! πŸ™‚ Yes, they can be used by any skin. It will make your skin soft and glowing.. Where are you from? May be I can see if you get some ingredients there?

    • Yes.. It will brighten your complexion. Lightening also depends on your genetics πŸ™‚ It will also work on dark circles..
