The Story

Bitter Fennel: Foeniculum vulgare (Hill) var. vulgare

Why bitter fennel? Bitter fennel essential oil has an earthy, almost peppery and clean aroma. The aroma is reminiscent of licorice, and has a great masking effect. Try blending into homemade soaps and candles for a zesty yet fresh fragrance.

Quality Assured: Our organic bitter fennel essential oil is responsibly sourced from Egypt, and steam distilled from the seeds of the fennel plant. 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 use and entirely free of adulterants.
