Very rich! Smells like expensive/real licorice. Seamed to decelerate in the beginning and then went back to the trace we had added it to. Very nice to work with. We had lots of time to do swirls. Can't wait to see how it cures!!
This EO is my favorite that I have worked with so far. Smells so good, like black licorice but a bit deeper. A great unisex scent, not that any scent can't be.
this is a practical and inexpensive essential oil. A little goes a long way. Try it in CP soap and sprinkle anise seeds on top. Everyone loves it
I made the Licorice Candy M&P soap for my nephew. This smelled very good - just like a black licorice candy. Love it!
I ordered this oil to make Star Anise Melt & Pour Bars. The overall product came out great. This oil on its own is extremely strong. Not unpleasant but I would not use it on its own. The bars came out beautiful and the combination of anise and orange was perfect.
