Fennel is part of the carrot or parsley family and is also related to dill, cumin, anise and caraway. Fennel oil is captured by steam distillation of the seeds of the fennel plant and is a key part of aromatherapy and holistic medicine because of its diverse benefits.
The main component of fennel oil is anethole. Levels of the compound anethole are particularly high in fennel oil, providing a considerable amount of its antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. All of these biochemical agents are bioavailable, meaning they can be rapidly absorbed into the body and making for the quick availability of their benefits. This allows for health benefits like aiding digestion, removing toxic buildup in the blood, and relaxing muscles. Some of fennel essential oil benefits include: Speed up healing of wounds, alleviates spasms, menstruation regulation, alleviate stress and anxiety.
Fennel Oil comprises potent anti-inflammatory compounds, which, when used topically, can do wonders for your skin. Whether it’s a puffy complexion, under-eye bags or even rosacea, Fennel Oil can help to soothe and calm your skin to help it look healthier and happier. With active elements such as anethol, limonene and chavicol, Fennel Essential Oil lifts the skin to minimise pores and even out imperfections.
