The Story

Name: Pimpinella anisum (L.)

Why Anise? Anise is one of the oldest-known herbal remedies. Pliny recommended it in the morning as a pick-me-up. Ancient Egyptians documented its use medicinally and for household purposes. Charlemagne cultivated it on the imperial farms in the 9th century. It has a natural licorice-like flavor and savory, spicy aroma. The aromatherapy essential oil can also open the breath and encourage deep, rejuvenating inhalation. 

Quality Assured: Our organic anise essential oil is responsibly sourced from Egypt. The essential oil is steam distilled from the seed. Every batch of oil is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and produced without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Additionally, our expert aromatherapists here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally assess all of our oils—using touch, taste, smell, and lab analyses—to ensure that your essential oil is suitable for clinical use and entirely free of adulterants. A GC analysis of our Anise oil shows 89% anethole, 3.26% y-himachalene, and .98% astragal.
