    100% PURE FENNEL ESSENTIAL OIL, Fennel (foeniculum dulce) is known primarily for its sweet, crisp flavour that is faintly reminiscent of licorice. There is far more to this distant cousin of the carrot than the fact that it makes a unique salad topper, however: Fennel essential oil conveys a number of surprising benefits, whether you’re using it for aromatherapy or consuming it as part of a healthy diet. Curious to find out more? Check out the five benefits of fennel essential oil below:

     

    1. Fennel oil is great for your gut.Fennel essential oil can do a number of things to profoundly improve stomach and intestinal health. Fennel is a strong carminative, meaning that it reduces symptoms of gas, bloating, and indigestion. Furthermore, it can completely alleviate constipation. Fennel also kills worms and parasites, so it helps to keep us safe from food-borne dangers. It can even reduce the pain and discomfort associated with menstruation.

     

    2. The scent of fennel raises alertness and confidence.When used in aromatherapy, fennel essential oil helps to relax and center the mind while also giving you a sense of empowerment and accountability. If you’re facing a challenge or difficult decision in your life, fennel may help you gain the courage and clarity you need to handle the situation successfully. Fennel has been used in this way since ancient times: Historically it was used to bestow strength and bravery to warriors who were about to enter battle. (If you want to make a fennel blend for aromatherapy, you’ll be interested to know that it pairs well with the following essential oils: Basil, Geranium, Lavender, Lemon, Rosemary, and Sandalwood.)

     

    3. Fennel is great for your kidneys—and it can even help to lower your blood pressure.Fennel oil is a diuretic, meaning that it prompts your kidneys to produce more (and better quality) urine. This cleanses the body of toxins, reduces water retention, and helps to control levels of uric acid and bile so they don’t build up in the body. Because this relieves pressure on the body, it can reduce a person’s blood pressure, helping to lower the risk of stroke. Just remember that if you’re not suffering from water retention, you should drink more water while taking fennel oil—otherwise you may become slightly dehydrated.

     

    4. Fennel supports the maitenance of a healthy spleen.Though not much attention is paid to the spleen in mainstream health literature, it’s an incredibly important organ. It produces lymphocytes and red blood cells, which are essential to maintaining a strong immune system and fighting disease. Fennel oil has been shown to protect the spleen against damage and infection, so this humble oil should be an integral part of everyone’s disease-fighting toolkit.

     

    5. Fennel lessens congestion.Even if you do catch a flu or cold while taking fennel oil, its symptoms are sure to be greatly reduced thanks to fennel’s expectorant properties. Fennel oil (when inhaled) helps to loosen mucus deposits in the nasal tract, larynx, pharynx, bronchi and lungs, providing instant relief.

     

    As you can see, fennel oil is useful for a number of troubling common conditions—and it can improve your overall quality of life. Just be aware that fennel should not be taken in very high doses, nor should it be ingested by women who are pregnant (because it slightly elevates estrogen levels). As an aromatherapy oil, however, fennel can be used by anyone, all year long. Enjoy!
