Our organically crafted anise essential oil is steam distilled from wildcrafted pods of the anise seed flower growing wild in Spain. Not to be confused with the popular star anise spice, harvested from an evergreen tree, the oil produced from this flowering annual is unique to the Eastern Mediterranean and Southwest Asia regions. We often reach for this essential oil when looking to help ease an upset stomach or resolve other digestive issues.
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anise essential oil is uplifting and comforting, and especially welcome in blends when one is feeling overly withdrawn or fearful.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.
