Description

Details

Star Anise essential oil has a beautiful, fresh, sweet, spicy, liquorice-like aroma. It is produced from the seeds of an unusual fruit which grows on a small oriental tree. The fruit is, as the name suggests, star shaped, radiating between five and ten pointed sections, about eight on average. These hard sections are seed pods. The star-shaped fruit is picked before it can ripen, then dried. The essential oil is usually extracted from the dried seed via steam distillation. 

In folklore Anise was believed to protect and was supposed to avert the Evil Eye. In modern aromatherapy Star Anise essential oil is used for its carminative, digestive, stimulant and diuretic properties. It is also useful for skin conditions, to combat stress related fatigue and to improve women's wellbeing.
