Anise Essential Oil
Anise shines brightest when being used to treat coughs, colds, and the flu. It is also used to relieve muscle aches, and in small doses promotes peace and relaxation. In skincare, Anise's antioxidant properties help neutralize free radical damage in the skin, protecting it against aging and promoting a youthful appearance.
The strong profile of Anise pairs well with spicy oils such as black pepper, thyme, and ginger. It also works well with citrus oils such as lemon, bergamot, and grapefruit.
