Sweet Fennel, "Dispelleth Wind, Maketh Unfat" 0
Sweet Fennel ( aka Foeniculum vulgare) was the first essential oil I ever purchased. Distilled from the crushed seeds of fennel. It has a very sweet, slightly earthy/spicy, clean aroma similar to aniseed or licorice sweets. As a herb, it was recognised in ancient times of Greece and Roman as a slimming aid and weight loss suppressant.
