Aromatherapy of the Week: Anise

Image

Anise Seed (Pimpinella anisum) is steam-distilled from the seeds, usually originating in Egypt. It has a sweet licorice aroma similar to Fennel. Benefits include:

  • stomach soother (do not consume Anise essential oil)
  • good for respiratory health
  • pro-estrogen (some say good for milk secretion, do not use when pregnant)

Blends well with Lavender, Orange, Wood aromas, Clove and Cinnamon
