Sweet Fennel Essential Oil is an aromatic oil that clears blockages in the body. It helps with weight balancing, digestion and feminine comfort. Similar to Anise, fennel oil can also beneficially affect the respiratory system.
The fragrant and tasty Fennel seed is licorice-scented like Anise seed, but its aroma is more herbal and less sweet. The two essential oils have therapeutic properties in common, such as increasing breast milk production, soothing the respiratory system and helping with digestion. Fennel differs in that it also has slimming and diuretic effects, which make it helpful for reducing cellulite.
Digestive system: Reduces intestinal gas and soothes stomach problems, including nausea and symptoms of overeating.
Female reproductive system: Stimulates menstruation and helps make it regular. Eases menstrual discomfort and symptoms of menopause.
Respiratory system: Helps rid the breathing passages of mucous and also helps relax spasms.
Lymphatic system: Aids the lymphatic system in draining and eliminating toxins. It also helps reduce cellulite and obesity, helping draw excess water out of the body..
How to Use:
Like Anise, Fennel has benefits for skin care but must be used with caution due to its being a skin irritant. Avoid during pregnancy or if epileptic.
