Anise

Pimpinella anisum

Description

Our organically crafted anise essential oil is steam distilled from the wildcrafted ripe seeds of the Pimpinella anisum plant that grows wild the countryside of Spain and then dried before distillation. Not to be confused with the popular star anise spice, grown on an evergreen tree, the oil produced from this annual is unique to the Eastern Mediterranean and Southwest Asia regions. 

Anise essential oil is one of our favorite oils when looking to help with an upset stomach or other digestive issue. It is also a fantastic oil when looking to formulate blends for reducing pain and inflammation. One of our favorite ways to enjoy this oil is to add to a blend to help with nausea. Anise is also incredibly uplifting and comforting, and especially welcome in blends when one is feeling overly withdrawn or fearful.
