A member of the Apiaceae family, Levisticum officinale is an aromatic perennial with dark green, cilantro-like leaves and thick, celery-like stalks. Lovage has a long history of cultivation in Europe where the leaves and seeds were often employed as spice. The thick, fleshy, carrot-shaped lovage root was often prepared as a vegetable or employed for its healthful properties. Lovage now grows wild in the United States in New England, the Great Lakes states, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico.
Besides its uses as a culinary herb, the aromatic qualities of lovage root make it a favored herb in wellness support. The ancient Greeks would employ the plant in occasional digestive complaints and this traditional use has carried into its folk herbal uses.
Our aromatic lovage root extract has an herbaceous and slightly spicy flavor. It is expertly macerated at our extract facility in Eugene, Oregon. Lovage root tincture can be used in making tablets, elixirs, salves, and soaks. The liquid extract can be taken alone, in water or as part of a botanical blend. It pairs well with ginger extract and makes a nice addition to happy tummy tea.
