Ord. Leguminosae. Sex. Syst. Diadelphia Decandria. The root of this southern European plant is inodorous; has a sweet taste; is mucilaginous; and leaves, when unpeeled, a degree of bitterness in the mouth. It is used as a demulcent, and chiefly in catarrh. The extract, made from it and sold in the shops, is known under the name Spanish Liquorice or Liquorice Juice, (F.) Jus de Reglisse. Pectoral Balsam of Liquorice-a quack preparation- is said by Dr. Paris to consist chiefly of Paregoric Elixir, strongly impregnated with Oil of Aniseed.
