Aniseed Essential Oil
Arctander has this to say “Water-white or very pale yellow liquid of intensely sweet and clean odor, truly reminiscent of the crushed fruit. A very common description is that of “licorice odor”. In perfumes, the oil finds some use as a masking agent for obnoxious odors such as hydrogen sulfide, e.g. in cold-wave preparations and depilatories.”
Botanical Name: Pimpinella anisum
Safety Data: Aniseed (Pimpinella anisum) should not be used at all by those that are pregnant or by the inexperienced in aromatherapy. Under no circumstances should this oil ever be used neat on the skin. A safer alternative to aniseed is anise star which has some similarities chemically speaking and which also contains the prized shikimic acid, commonly used in most flu remedies. Also anise star (illicum verum) has a smell of aniseed due to the high anethol content (also found in fennel).
