Fresh, sweet, spicy and licorice-like, anise seed is not to be confused with star anise. While the two hold similar properties, anise seed is an entirely different plant, and indeed a star in its own right. A little goes a long way with this oil and dilution prior to blending is recommended.

Anise seed is known to help aid muscle aches and spasms, coughs, colds and flus, and digestive problems like flatulence.
