Anise Star E.O (China Star)

Adam Michael has this to say “This small tree, a native of southeastern Asia, bears anise-scented star-shaped fruit that is used medicinally as a way of inducing the expulsion of gas from the stomach and intestines. The major constituent is anethole, in the world of perfumery this material has little use and over dosage is very easy. This material is best suited to qualified aromatherapists.”
