Sweet Fennel Essential Oil, Foeniculum vulgare dulce, has a sweet, licorice-like aroma. It is best known for its usefulness as a digestive aid, and it helps to relieve gas and indigestion. Fennel Essential Oil is often recommended for nursing mothers to increase milk flow and production. It is good in PMS blends and helps alleviate painful breasts during menstrual cycles. Fennel Oil is a good diuretic, cleansing oil, and is useful in baths for detoxification. Fennel Essential Oil eases stress, has a mild sedative effect yet is also uplifting. Fennel can be a bit overpowering, so use it sparingly with other oils such as lavender, lemon, rose, sandalwood, basil, cypress and bergamot.
Do not use Fennel Essential Oil during pregnancy or on babies and small children. Do not use if you suffer from epilepsy.
