Fennel is a licorice tasting herb used commonly in cooking and herbalism. Bitter fennel oil, not used for aromatherapy, is extracted from the crushed seeds and/or the whole herb of the foeniculum vulgare var. amara plant. Fennel seed contains vitamin C, potassium, manganese, iron, folate and fiber. It is also rich in phytonutrients. Fennel helps relieve a number of ailments and facilitates better health due to its digestive, carminative, antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, expectorant, diuretic, emmenagogue, depurative, anticarcinogenic and antioxidant properties. It has a cleansing and toning effect on the skin, helping with bruises, balances oily skin and combats wrinkles in mature complexions.
