Anise Star (Illicium verum) Pure Essential Oil Aromatherapy - Aromatherapy - Therapeutic Quality
Description: Spicy, warm, licorice-like aroma. Used by fishermen to mask human scent in order to fish trout. A wonderful perfumery addition in subtle quantities, especially in citrus blends, or as an underpinning to a vanilla blend. Well known for its effect on the digestive system. Very sweet, and similar to anethole, with slight musky notes.
Anise oil is commonly used for bronchitis, colds and flu, breathing difficulties, asthma, and congestion. Can be used in facial steams and diffusers, as it is an expectorant. In massage, it can also be used to help relieve pain from rheumatism, as well as aid muscle aches.
Blends well with cedarwood, chamomile, cypress, fennel, lavender, lime, neroli, nutmeg, orange, peppermint, rose, tea tree.
