The spicy warm scent of Aniseed embodies its restorative and stirring properties that encourage free flow where there is tightness or stagnation.

Nature/Essence – Warm & Restorative

Aniseed has a long history of use for digestive and respiratory conditions where stagnation or spasms are prevalent. As an inhalation it helps clear congestion, ease a cough and open up the lungs. Added to massage oil, Aniseed makes a soothing tummy rub for colic, bloating or indigestion.

Helps clear the head and restore the nervous system in times of exhaustion or ‘shutting down.

A nice grade of oil

This oil can vary a lot of quality and aroma-I like this one as it is at the sweeter end of aniseed aromas which makes it easy to blend with.

Aniseed China Star

Smells just like Aniseed. I used this with patchouli in my castle soap and it smells devine.
