Star anise (also known as anise star) is a fruit native to Vietnam and China. It has the shape of a star with seeds tucked inside. Star anise has been used in Chinese medicine since antiquity, most notably helping with cases of rheumatism.

Anise star essential oil is considered to assist in expanding lung capacity, calming overworked muscles, working as an antiseptic, and an overall tonic to health. It contains anethole, the same compound that is found in the non-related anise, which gives it a similar scent. It is commonly used in toothpaste formulations, soaps, personal care formulations, and perfumes.

I use this Anise as one of the oils I combine with Black Seed Oil to create a chest rub for my son's asthmatic dry cough. It really makes a difference!

Anise is one of my top favorite oils. It is a scent that helps me relax and just feel good. One I must have on hand at all times. I have used it in my homemade shampoo and conditioner because I love it so much

Love the scent for two reasons thus far. Reminds me of anise cookies at Christmas time that my father used to make and the red anise candies my grandfather always had in his pocket for us

This oil makes me think of Christmas. It's a warm spicy oil, but it's sweet at the same time. I must have if you like Cloves, Cinnamon or Allspice.
