Anise essential oil, with its spicy, sweet, licorice-like aroma, is a traditional oil for the belly. It can ease that “too full” feeling that might follow a big meal, and may offer relief if your stomach feels clenched, tight, full of pressure, or queasy. Our anise essential oil is steam distilled from organically grown brown pods of anise seed flowers in Spain. The essential oil is unique to the Eastern Mediterranean and Southwest Asia, and is different from the popular spice, star anise (which is harvested from an evergreen tree).
Benefits and uses
The brown pods of the white-flowering Pimpinella anisum plant create a sweet, herbaceous, spicy, warm, licorice-like essential oil. Along with helping soothe the digestive system, anise essential oil is also fantastic when looking to formulate blends for reducing pain and inflammation. This essential oil may help reduce unwanted muscle spasms and unwanted viral activity. Anise essential oil is helpful when looking to support healthy lung function, especially when experiencing a cold or the flu.
Emotionally and energetically, anise essential oil is uplifting and comforting, and especially welcome in blends when one is feeling overly withdrawn or fearful. This essential oil increases mental clarity, provides inner strength, and sparks motivation.
