DESCRIPTION

    NOW Foods Anise Oil - 1 oz.

    Now Foods Anise Oil has a distinct licorice-like aroma. Now Foods Anise Oil has been enjoyed by Egyptian, Greek and Roman cultures for centuries and is famed for its role in alleviating digestive and stomach challenges. Now Foods Anise Oil is 100% pure and natural, mixes well with sandalwood, lavender and orange oils, and is steam distilled from Anise seeds.
    • 100% Pure & Natural
    • Illicium verum
    • Aromatherapeutic GC/IR Verified
    Fun fact: In 1619, it was decreed by law from the Virginia Assembly that each family plant at least six anise seeds a year.

    From the sublime to the fantastic, Anise Seed has experienced a multitude of uses during the course of history. It was used to perfume the clothing of King Edward IV, as a food flavoring during the Middle Ages, and to fund repairs on the London Bridge, for which a special tax was added to the sale of anise seed. Pliny the Elder, author of the first encyclopedia, claimed its seeds had the power to prevent bad dreams if placed beneath the sleeper's pillow. Anise seed (or aniseed) is a member of the parsley family, and its flavor resembles licorice. Used medicinally since prehistoric times, anise seed remains a staple in aromatherapy.

    Mixes well with: Cedarwood, clary sage, lavender, orange, rosewood, sandalwood, and tangerine.

    Parts used: Seeds.

    Extraction method: Steam distillation.

    Safety Information: Not recommended for use if pregnant. May cause stomach irritation and dizziness, so do not exceed recommended dosage. Do not use if diagnosed with endometriosis or estrogen-dependent cancers.

    NOW's Mission
    The NOW mission is - To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods.

    In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods—a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.

    History of NOW
    In 1968, NOW Foods was founded under the belief that good health was not a luxury available only to the wealthy. For the past forty years, NOW has made it their life's work to offer health food and nutritional supplements of the highest quality, at prices that are fair and affordable to all those who seek them. Today, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling brands in health foods stores, an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development.
