What is Anise?
Anise belongs to the Apiaceae plant family and is one of the oldest medicinal plants on record. Evidence of anise cultivation goes back as far as 4,000 years in ancient Egypt and it later gained popularity across Europe, eastern Mediterranean, Turkey, and Greece. This annual grassy herb boasts beautiful white flowers and is primarily grown for its fruits (anise seeds) which are harvested in late summer.
Anise seeds contain up to 5% essential oils and are famous for providing soothing, digestive relief! With a taste similar to licorice, it is extremely palatable to horses and excellent for ridding gas, pain and gastrointestinal spasms, as well as, providing many other nutritional benefits.
Energetics: Anise seeds are energetically warming / drying. This means they can help with signs of coldness such as profuse, watery, clear or white mucous discharge, lack of thirst, seeking warm areas (like standing in the sun), lethargy, stiffness, and cold limbs & signs of dampness such as excessive mucus, lack of thirst, lethargy, stocking up, or a wet cough.
