Hailing from the misty shores of the French island of Corsica, Fennel Essential Oil captures the essence of pure, organic fennel that has grown in the inviting Mediterranean sun. Steam distilled from the seeds of the plant, fennel has been adored by authors and herbalists since time immemorial.
Fennel is one of the stars of Greek mythology; it was with stalks of fennel that Prometheus stole fire from the gods and brought its fortifying power to the people. The bright yellow flowers of the fennel plant and its sweet seeds are cultivated all over the world for use in the culinary and aromatherapy arts. European herbal home care included formulating fennel with baking soda and dill to calm babies.
Our sweet Fennel Essential Oil is a calming-caress that tones and harmonizes all types of skin. Fennel gently stimulates feelings of increased enthusiasm, hope, and joy.
"Stimulating and revitalizing, fennel increases self-motivation and enlivens the personality. Hildegard said fennel makes a person happy."
