    Organic sweet fennel essential oil

    A plant native to Europe, known since antiquity. A sacred herb for the Celts and commonly cultivated in monastic gardens in the Middle Ages, its bulbous variety is appreciated in cooking as a vegetable for its aromatic flavours. Its tall stems end in light yellow umbels that flower from July to September. Its fruits, harvested in autumn, yield an essential oil with a typical aniseed flavour.

Moreover, they can be obtained from the seeds, the flowering plant, the whole plant... and thus give essential oils that are different from each other. In this case we are talking about the essential oil of sweet fennel, obtained from the seeds. Our opinion Although the seeds of the sweet fennel have been used since the dawn of time with a certain ease, its essential oil is certainly magnificent but delicate to use.
