Quick Overview

This pure Sweet Fennel essential oil steam distilled from the seeds of Fennel herb, organically grown in Egypt.

Botanical Name: Foeniculum vulgare

Also known as 'French' or 'Roman', Sweet Fennel is a biennial or perennial herb growing up to 6 feet high with feathery leaves and brilliant crowns of gold flowers. Of unknown original origin, it was planted on the island of Malta by monks or crusaders a few thousand years ago. Currently, Sweet Fennel is principally grown in France, Italy and Greece.

About the Oil
This essential oil is predominantly clear with a slight blue tint. It is steam-distilled from the seeds of organically-grown Egyptian Sweet Fennel.
Aromatherapy Notes
This oil has a honeysuckle-like floral top note followed by a deeply sweet, anise-like middle note and an earthy, slightly woody and spiced undertone.

It blends well with Geranium, Lavender, Rose and Sandalwood.

Traditional Uses
It is an herb with a long history in traditional medicine, thought to bring longevity, courage and strength. Fennel's 'magical' use includes the warding off of evil spirits and the countering of poisons.

As with other members of the Umbelliferae family, Sweet Fennel has long been used as both a carminative (to reduce intestinal gas) and an expectorant (to loosen and expel respiratory congestion).

Safety
Sweet Fennel oil is a non-irritant, yet is a narcotic when ingested in larger doses and therefore it is recommended to use in very low concentrations. For therapeutic use, we recommend consulting a physician.

Note that 'Bitter' Fennel oil (Foeniculum vulgare amara) is much more harsh and pungent and therefore should not be mistaken for Sweet Fennel.

Persons who suffer from epilepsy, breast cancer or other tumors, epilepsy, hypothyroidism or who are pregnant should not use Fennel essential oil.
