What is Fennel Oil?

The fennel plant, known as Foeniculum vulgare, has a rich history that traces back to the southern Mediterranean region. Through naturalization and cultivation, it has spread and thrived in various parts of the world, including Asia, North America, and Europe. 

Initially, the plant was cultivated by Romans for its aromatic seeds, which were used in culinary applications and for their potential health benefits. In addition, the plant's edible fleshy shoots have continued to be a staple in southern Italian cuisine to this day. 

Fennel Essential Oil, extracted from the fennel plant, contains flavonoids that exhibit antinociceptive properties, possibly offering pain-relieving effects. Additionally, its anti-inflammatory activity makes it potentially useful for addressing discomfort and inflammation. You'll typically find this oil in cosmetics, particularly muscle rubs, for its potential to manage pain.
