Anise essential oil has a warm, spicy, deeply licoricey like aroma. It is a well known spice and used by ancient civilizations for digestive issues such as excess flatulence, colic, and as breath freshener. Anise is an excellent antispasmodic for both the smooth and skeletal muscle. This is a strong essential oil and should be used in small amounts and for short periods of time.
The respiratory expectorant action, especially with occasional wheezing and coughing, is well noted, helping with copious phlegm.
