Anise essential oil is steam-distilled from the star-shaped seeds of the Asian Illicium verum tree. Our anise essential oil comes from seeds grown in China. 

 

Fun Fact:
Anise is often chewed after each meal in Asian countries as other countries use peppermint - to promote digestion and sweeten breath.

 

Common Uses:
Anise essential oil is a warming essential oil commonly used for its sweet, licorice-like aroma. Mix into blends or apply in 2-5% dilution.

 

Aromatic Scent:
Anise Star has a powerful and licorice-like scent

 

History:
The Japanese plant the tree in their temples and on tombs; and use the pounded bark as incense. Homeopaths can prepare tinctures from the seeds.

 

Cautions:
Anise star is generally non-toxic and non-irritating (unlike Illicium anisatum - the Japanese variety that is long considered toxic).
