ABOUT THE OIL

The oil is often used interchangeably with that of Star Anise, both oils derive their primary therapeutic effect from trans-anethole. This is the natural constituent with the familiar licorice-like aroma similar to fennel, though sweeter. Its seeds are used as flavoring in pastries, candy and curry dishes.
Essential oil of Aniseed is colorless to pale yellow with a fresh, spicy-sweet characteristic scent. Like Star Anise, it is a good masking agent. It is considered a middle note and blends well with Black Pepper, Ginger, Lavender, Orange, Pine and Rose.
