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.
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!
