Description: Fennel Essential Oil has a sweet, licorice-like aroma. Fennel is used all around the world although it is generally considered indigenous to the shores of the Mediterranean. It is grown on dry soils near the sea-coast and on river banks. Fennel has been heavily cultivated for its edible, strongly flavored leaves and seeds. Many people have boiled down the leaves to make a carminative tea, made baby teething cubes from the syrup, and even made infused waters to ease bloating and indigestion. Fennel Essential Oil is highly sought after to rub on the abdomen to ease cramps, bloating, and even nausea.
Common Use: Fennel has been traditionally applied to help digestive disorders, dyspepsia, gastrointestinal spasm, flatulence, nausea, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, abdominal spasms, menstrual problems, menstrual cramps, premenstrual syndrome, fertility, endo-metriosis, menopausal symptoms, cellulite, fluid retention, heavy legs, bronchitis, respiratory conditions, and parasitic infections.

Cautions: Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. Fennel is estrogenic and should not be used for pregnancy, breast feeding, endometriosis, estrogen- sensitive cancers, and children under 5 years of age.
