Fennel oil is produced from steam distillation of the crushed seeds of this tall feathery-leaved plant, which is indigenous to parts of the Mediterranean. The ancient Greeks recognised this herb's value as a slimming aid and Roman armies would give the seeds to their soldiers to chew when they had to march long distances without time to stop and eat. Fennel is antispasmodic and traditionally used to relieve bloating and digestive problems. It is useful for fluid retention and regulation of the menstrual cycle.

Directions for Use
Essential oils are the highly concentrated active ingredients of plants. They should always be diluted in a base before use and should not be taken internally without professional recommendation.

  • Baths: Add 5 - 10 drops of essential oil(s) to a warm run bath. If skin is sensitive, blend the essential oil in a teaspoon of carrier oil first. Close the door so the vapours don't escape. Soak for at least 10 minutes relaxing and breathing deeply. For added moisturising dilute the oils in 10ml of carrier before adding to the bath.
  • Massage: add 5 - 6 drops of essential oil per 10ml of carrier oil. Mix thoroughly and apply liberally to the skin.
  • Inhalations: Add 4 - 5 drops of essential oil to a bowl of steaming water. Place a towel over your head, close your eyes and lean over the bowl. Inhale the vapour for a few minutes.
  • Burners and Diffusers: Fill the bowl of the burner/vaporiser with water and then add 3 - 6 drops of essential oil. Light the candle and the oil will evaporate as the water heats up. Do not let the bowl dry out.

Caring for Your Essential Oils
SOil essential oils and carrier oils are living products that are vulnerable to heat, moisture, air and light. It is best to store them in a cool, dark place with the lids well sealed. If your fridge is the only cool place around, allow the oils to reach a cool room temperature before use (around 20 degrees C).

  • Very good
    14 Jul, 2015, By Beulah Very good for digestive issues. I use it in a blend for IBS and any other stomach problems.

  • Be careful applying to your skin
    26 Mar, 2015, By Tracy Be careful and test a little bit on your skin before applying it liberally! I put some (diluted with a carrier oil of course) on my skin and had a terrible, severely itchy rash that spread over most of my body. I had to get antibiotics which only cleared the itchy rash after a week. Im not allergic to Fennel as I often put some fresh fennel leaves and/or seeds in my cooking. Generally I love Fennel - but there is a clear difference between internal and topical use of a herb.

  • The SOIL Fennel Oil is awesome!
