Aniseed Essential Oil

Latin Name: Pimpinella anisum
Plant Family: Apiaceae (Umbelliferae)
Extraction: Distillation of herbs & seeds

Aniseed is a colourless to pale yellow liquid with an uplifting, warm, spicy-sweet liquorice-like scent. Like anise star it is a good masking agent. 

The Middle East first gave us Aniseed and it is now found in the warmer parts of Europe as well as North Africa and the USA. Cultivated to about two feet it has delicate feathery leaves with tiny white blossoms. The greyish brown seeds are crushed before distillation increasing the oil yield. Low temperatures tend to solidify the oil and may need to be hand warmed before use.

Herbal & Folk Tradition 

Widely used as a spice, Aniseed has been used for flatulence, griping pains and painful periods. 

Blends With
