Description

Product: Lovage Root

Latin Name: Levisticum officinale syn. Hipposelinum levisticum, Levisticum levesticum, Ligusticum levisticum & Selinum levisticum.

Plant Family: Apiaceae

Other Names: Old English Lovage, Italian Lovage, Cornish Lovage, Chinese Lovage, Love Herbs, Love Rod, Lubestico, Italian Parsley, Love Root, Kao Ben, Maggikraut, Maggiplant, Levistico, Livèche & Lavose.

Description: Lovage is an herbaceous, perennial native to Southern Europe and the south western side of Asia; it can reach a height of up to 2.5 metres. The root is a thick and fleshy taproot which grows to a length of 10-12cm, the root is greyish-brown on the outside and creamy-white on the inside and highly aromatic.

Brief History: An infusion of the root was recommended by old herbalists as a treatment for jaundice and urinary complaints. Culpeper thought that seed was more powerful than the root.

SUGGESTED USE

Fresh root can be eaten like a parsnip, the dried root can be dried and added to soups and stews, for a robust flavour very much like celery. The root contains a volatile oil used in commercial preparations for water retention; it also contains photoactive compounds called furanocoumarins which some people may have a photosensitive reaction to.

Shelf Life

Shelf life of two years provided that goods are stored in an airtight container in ambient conditions.
