Fennel 

About Fennel

Fennel has been used for its helpful properties for ages.  Anciently it was thought to ward off evil spirits, in Roman times it was a symbol of strength and courage. Additionally even then it was known for its properties to sooth the digestive system and other ailments including curbing the appetite and snake bites.  The essential oil is steam distilled from the pulverized seeds (more correctly the fruit) of the Fennel plant.  The oil's aroma is anise-like (or licorice-like) with a sweet pleasant flagrance.

 

Typical Applications

Fennel ingested in a tea, added to water, or in a capsule can be an immediate help for indigestion, constipation, flatulence and other digestive system problems. For chronic digestive concerns add Fennel to the regular use of the TerraZyme supplement for a gentle way to make improvements. Simply add 2 - 3 drops of Fennel to a glass of water and drink daily.

Beyond digestive problems Fennel is an important oil in a number of blends that address a wide range of health concerns including hormonal balance, kidney failure, milk increase, and weight loss.  In these cases application can be topical, with massage, and/or in baths.

Precautions:   Consult professional advice before use by those who are subject to seizures, pregnant or nursing mothers.
