Description

Aniseed is the fruit of the annual anise plant of the parsley family (Umbelliferae). It grows up to 60cm in height and is umbelliferous in appearance with leaves varying in shape from heart-shaped to feathery. The fruits are covered with short hairs and each contains two dark seeds with light ribs.

History

Revered by ancient civilizations, particularly in the Middle East, Aniseed has long been used in cooking and in bread-making. It is widely used as a spice in cooking. Aniseed oil is very popular amongst soap-makers because the fresh spicy scent eliminates the smell of onions and fish on the hands when used by cooks, and masks the odor of humans when used by fishermen and hunters.

Cautions: The oil is very potent and not to be used on sensitive skin. Avoid use during pregnancy.
