This sweet fennel is part of our local artisan distilled essential oil collection. This essential oil is a pale yellow liquid with a refreshing, anise-like aroma. An effective antispasmodic of the gastric and intestional smooth muscle, sweet fennel helps to relieve nausea, bloating, belching, indigestion, and constipation.
Sweet fennel also has a nice action on the respiratory system, calming spastic coughing and asthma, and working to disperse phlegm.
Garbriel Mojay says that sweet fennel is a mild diuretic and lymphatic decongestant, helping to rid the body of stagnant fluids and fats. Fennel has been used for centuries in cooking and for medicinal purposes.
