Aniseed Essential Oil

Our whole family loves this Anise!

This is a perfect anise that smells amazing! We like it best in the bath with cinnamon or vanilla. It is strong--but we appreciate that. It smells a little like licorice. Everyone who has smelled it says 'wow'.


Too Strong

I love all of my oils from Simply Earth, but this one I just don't like. It's too strong for me. I mixed it in my diffuser with wintergreen and patchouli and all I could smell was the anise for 3 days. It's a hard smell to get out of the diffuser! Just not my style.
