Fennel Essential Oil (Foeniculum vulgare) has a sweet, earthy, anise-like aroma that is energizing, vitalizing, and balancing. Fennel is stimulating to the circulatory, glandular, respiratory, and digestive systems and also may support feelings of well-being during the menstrual cycle.* Fennel has an approximate ORAC of 2,383,680 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter.
Historical Data: Fennel was believed to ward off evil spirits and to protect against spells cast by witches during medieval times. Sprigs were hung over doors to fend off evil phantasms. For hundreds of years, fennel seeds have been used as a digestive aid and to balance menstrual cycles. It is mentioned in one of the oldest known medical records, Ebers Papyrus (dating from sixteenth century BC), an ancient Egyptian list of 877 prescriptions and recipes. Fennel was also listed in Hildegard's Medicine, a compilation of early German medicines by highly-regarded Benedictine herbalist Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179).
Wellness Solutions: Fennel essential oil supports the immune, circulatory, endocrine, and digestive systems.
