Anise, Star Essential Oil: This sweet smelling essential oil smells just like black licorice. It is often used as a flavoring agent in cold and cough medicines, and used as a rub to relieve muscular aches and pains (when diluted with a carrier oil). It can be used as a chest rub to relieve symptoms of colds, and coughs. Vaporized Anise may also help with colds and coughs. Warnings: This essential oil is not intended for internal use without the guidance of a doctor. If ingested in large amounts, anise essential oil will slow down the circulatory system as it is a mild narcotic. Also, Anise essential oil contains 'anethole' which may exacerbate those with skin conditions. Do not use during pregnancy.

Illicum Verum

Hunter's Soap
Living in the Texas hill country, this has been a very popular soap with my customers who hunt and fish. Anise is known to mask human scent, so they feel this gives them a little leg up!

Wow it's amazing!
I took a chance and ordered this, hoping I would like it and I loved it! Its just like someone stated above its powerful but not too overwhelming. Smells like Licorice. The soap I made was beautiful and I added kaolin clay and activated charcoal. This one is definitely a keeper! Thanks Brambleberry!

One of my favorites
I've been testing various FOs and EOs, and this is one I keep coming back to. It's great on its own or mixed with complementary scents. I find that the scent is quite powerful, but not overwhelming. That said, I would suggest looking at BB's fragrance calculator as you do need less of it than many other oils.

Excellent Product!
We love this oil!!! We use it in lip balms and soaps and though the kids are not real impressed, all the adults love it!! Brings us back to our childhood. Takes kitchen smells off the hands super well too. Makes a super fun soap with added charcoal!

Deliciously Fragrant!
I love this Anise eo. I used it to make a layered and swirled melt and pour loaf. It smells absolutely divine with orange valencia and vanilla. I wish I could add a photo to my review since I don't do facebook, my soap came out gorgeous.
