What is Anise?
Also known as aniseed, anise (Illicium verum) is an annual herb perhaps best known for its signature licorice-like flavor and spicy-sweet scent. It can reach a height of 2 feet, is covered in soft hairs, and bears white flowers and oblong schizocarp fruits. Aniseed is cultivated in southern Europe, Turkey, central Asia, India, China, and Japan, as well as Central and South America.
Anise seeds naturally contain flavonoids and fatty oils, as well as its main component anethole. These seeds have been used in cuisines around the world for their licorice-like flavor, and are popularly distilled to extract their spicy-sweet smelling essential oil. Anise seeds have also been used in ancient Egypt to make tea, by ancient Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder, and in traditional European wellness practices for an array of applications, such as in supporting digestive health, menstrual comfort, and immune health.**
