Essential Oil - Anise Seed

(Pimpinella anisum)

calming, balancing

Anise seed oil has a licorice-like aroma and is used mainly for flatulence and indigestion in aromatherapy. It can also be effective when taken internally in small amounts for dry irritable coughs, bronchitis, and whooping cough. Because anise is a spice, a drop can be taken in water to help with digestion or the oil can be added to honey when taken for coughs and other ailments.
