Fennel Essential Oil
Fennel is an aromatic plant with edible stalks. It is also used as an herb. Although fennel smells and tastes like black licorice, it has little else in common with licorice.
Fennel is an erect growing perennial herb native to southern Europe and the Mediterranean area. Reaching a height of 1.5 meters (approximately 4.5 feet), the plant has yellow flowers. Bitter Fennel was known as fenkle in the Middle Ages, from the Latin foenum meaning 'hay'. The ancients believed it gave one longevity, courage and strength, as well as warded off evil spirits.
