Weirdly a cross between licorice and pickles. It works fantastic on an upset tummy. I use it mixed with ginger in a rollerball, or just neat. A couple drops on your abdomen is effective if you have any digestive issues. Good stuff.

This is great for upset tummies. I mix it with a carrier oil, peppermint, and lavender, and apply topically. Very soothing. I'd also like to try recreating a perfume I used to wear that contained fennel and grapefruit, but I'm a newbie to EOs and haven't been brave enough yet!

I came across fennel when looking for EOs to blend into a night facial ritual. Anti-ageing, good for mature skin, anti-oxidant, toner, helpful to acne, etc. Had to try it. I'm not 16 again overnight or anything but it's there to help hold the line and not advance faster into aged skin than I need to. I'm not a fan of licorice but there is nothing wrong with the smell. It adds something to complex blends. It does not mix with sunlight so keep this as a night oil/cream blend. Don't ever apply neat, test patches of course and good luck with it. ...having read all of the other comments now I have to investigate the appetite suppressant properties. Thanks ND community! Group minds rule.

This EO smells very similar to Star Anise or Aniseed (black licorice) as described. I am using it in an appetite suppressant blend which I apply topically to my pulse points (50/50 with carrier oil) and diffuse: Fennel - 15 drops Bitter Orange - 25 drops Pink Grapefruit - 25 drops Peppermint - 5 drops

I bought this oil for its therapeutic properties. If you enjoy black licorice, you will enjoy this oil. Only gave four stars because I personally don't enjoy the smell. That being said, the description of this oil matches perfectly.

Amazing - I made a batch of melt-and-pour soap with this Sweet Fennel and Spearmint, and it was my favourite shower soap for months!!! The aroma is very distinctive when used in oil dilutions.

I am a hair stylist and have just received my essential oils from New Directions. Last night, I had been suffering from a recurring pain in my wrist . I was viewing the New Directions website and just happened to have a bottle of Fennel Sweet on my desk. I decided, for some unforeseen reason, to apply fennel sweet to my wrist. In an instant, the pain disappeared! Being a sceptic I could not believe it. I had a warm and cold sensation for just a couple of minutes. I am passing this valuable information on to my clients and other stylists. Thank you!

Great for 'dieting blends', sweet fennel was used in ancient times to ward off evil spirits. The essential oil is for EXTERNAL USE ONLY and it should always be diluted with a suitable carrier oil before applying to the skin. It is non-toxic and non-irritant but with possible sensitization in some individuals. Do not use if pregnant. Do not use if epileptic. Use for abdominal cramps, anorexia, asthma, bronchitis, cellulitis, children's ailments, menopausal problems, milk stimulation, nausea, mature skin, rheumatism, women's ailments. Also known as Anethum foeniculum, Fenkel, Foeniculum officinale, Foeniculum capillaceum.
