ABOUT THE OIL

This steam distilled pure anise seed essential oil is from the seeds of dried ripe fruit of Anise grown in its native Egypt. Anise seed plants stand less than a meter high with delicate leaves and small white flowers. Although Anise originates from Egypt and Greece, it is also cultivated in India, China, Mexico and Spain. Our 100% Pure, Certified Organic Anise Seed essential oil has a rich, intense, warm and spicy aroma. Also known as 'Sweet Cumin', Aniseed is a small, delicate, annual herb native to Greece and Egypt. Anise seeds are reddish-brown and oval in shape with a distinctly black licorice-like flavor and aroma profile.

Our 100% Pure, Certified Organic Anise Seed essential oil has a rich, intense, warm and spicy aroma. Also known as 'Sweet Cumin', Aniseed is a small, delicate, annual herb native to Greece and Egypt.

Traditional Uses

Ancient Egyptians cultivated anise as a medicinal and culinary spice and it was later adopted by the Greeks and Romans. Trans-anethole is the natural constituent that provides the licorice-like aroma that is similar to yet sweeter than that of Fennel. The oil has traditionally been used to add flavor to various culinary ventures from candy and baked goods to curry dishes. Anise also earned the moniker "the fisherman's friend" when it was added to soaps to aid fisherman in removing the smell of fish from their skin.
