Deep Cleansing, Purifying and Revitalizing
Used for centuries for its many health benefits, fennel essential oil has pronounced antioxidant properties and is considered a tonic.
Sweet Fennel has compounds that are anti-inflammatory, anticarcinogestic, positive hormone activity within the body to support hormonal balance -male and female – amazing positive support for gastro-intestinal and urinary tract systems.
Fennel’s sweet yet spicy aroma is balancing and may bring to mind licorice.
Fennel is a hardy biennial or perennial herb, growing to a height of two meters (six feet), with fine, feathery leaves and umbels of golden-yellow flowers. The essential oil is produced from the crushed seeds.
The use of Fennel as an herb stretches back to antiquity, featuring in the culinary and medical arts of Ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome and India, as well as in Anglo-Saxon Cookery. Fennel (sweet) has clean, sweet, aniseed top notes and earthy, spicy, peppery undertones.
It blends well with Geranium, Lavender, Black Pepper, Rosemary, Sandalwood, Frankincense and Lemon.
Properties: Analgesic, anti-infectious, anti-parasitic, antispasmodic, antiseptic, aperitive, carminative (settles digestion), depurative(purifies and cleanses the blood), cholagogic (stimulates the flow of bile from the gall bladder into the intestines), digestive stimulant, diuretic, emmenagogic (promotes and regulates menstruation), expectorant, lactogenic, oestrogen-like, expectorant, splenic, stomatic, relieves colic, indigestion and excessive gas.
Fennel has a tonic effect on the smooth muscle of the intestine, which is valuable in colitis, and in some cases of constipation, as it strengthens peristalisis (the rhythmic contractions of the intestinal muscles which move the partially-digested food mass through the intestines).
Fennel is a good urinary-tract antiseptic, excellent for alleviating flatulence and digestive problems, local massage combined with drinking Fennel Tea is recommended.
Fennel is very supportive of the respiratory system in that it can relieve coughs and nervous asthma.
Fennel helps eliminate water retention issues, cellulite and obesity if
enough water is consumed on a regular basis (both apply topically and ingest as a Tea several times a day) – makes happy Kidneys and Spleen
It also can be helpful with gout, arthritis, etc. to prevent the build-up of toxic wastes in the body, which precede the inflammatory condition of the joints.
Fennel is one of the plants that has been known for thousands of years for its effects on the female reproductive system. It now seems probable that this is due to a plant hormone – a form of oestrogen – in its structure. It can help to regularize the menstrual cycle, particularly where periods are scanty and painful, with cramping pains. It has been found to reduce symptoms of pre-menstrual stress, and also the water retention, which many women experience in the few days before menstruation is due.
A few drops rubbed between the palms of the hand and inhaling has an amazing positive effect inside and out. Fennel encourages us to express ourselves! Fennel Oil releases our urge to create. It helps us to find, like oil of Ginger, productive outlets for the active mind.
