Aniseed Essential Oil

The scent of Aniseed China Star essential oil can be described as being warm, spicy, very sweet, and liquorice-like. Aniseed Oil is a clear to very pale-yellow colored oil. It is steam distilled from the fresh or partly dried whole fruits of an evergreen tree

Why Auroma 100% pure and natural, therapeutic grade Aniseed essential oil from The Aromatherapy Place: Unscruplous producers often adulterate their essential oils. Auroma maintains strict guidelines to ensure that all plants used for essential oil distillation are grown wild, in unpolluted areas, or are organically grown, and further ensures that the length of time between harvesting and the distillation process is kept to an absolute minimum.

Please note: Some essential oils, such as Aniseed, Cedarwood and Peppermint Arvensis will solidify in the cold. This is normal, they will melt and dissolve if gently warmed. At The Aromatherapy Place we immerse the whole sealed container in warm water.

Specific Safety Information: Information regarding the safe use of Aniseed essential oil is conflicting. Some sources suggest it is toxic. Battaglia states that "it is diffiult to believe that Aniseed essential oil is so toxic, knowing that herbalists are recommending its use internally and the only contra-indications identified are the occasional allergic reactions of the skin." Do not to use orally during pregnancy and breast feeding.
