Our wildcrafted anise essential oil is steam distilled from the dry ripe seeds of the Pimpinella anisum annual grown in Spain and produced by an incredibly talented distiller. This oil is a practically clear, slightly pale yellow color, with a sweet, spicy, herbaceous, and distinctively liquorice-like aromatic profile.
As anise essential oil is high in anethol, a chemical component found in the ethers family, therapeutically it is a perfect oil to use when looking to relieve digestive distress. It is also a wonderful oil to use in blends for reducing pain and inflammation, unwanted phlegm, wheezing, and coughing. This oil is also an excellent antispasmodic, for both the smooth and skeletal muscles.
Energetically, anise essential oil is immensely uplifting, comforting, and emotionally grounding (especially if one is feeling withdrawn and/or fearful).
Anise essential oil is very strong and should be avoided during pregnancy and while nursing. This is an oil that should only be used in small amounts and for short periods of time.
