Anise Seed comes from a white flowering plant that is native to the Eastern Mediterranean region and Southwest Asia. It has been widely used as a domestic spice and has a licorice flavor similar to Fennel. In many countries, anise is used as a mouth freshener and digestive agent. The medicinal properties of this herb have been known and used for centuries in ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome.

Secondary Usages: Assists with muscle aches, spasms, rheumatism, flu, colds, bronchitis, asthma, frigidity, and impotence.

Has Been Reported: To calm down epileptic and hysteric attacks because it has a narcotic and sedative effect on the body.
