In the wake of COVID-19 pandemic situation, our supply chain has hugely been affected and we had to reduce our stocks of some of our products (particularly hydrosols and body butters). We will be back in stock with most of our products once things start getting back to normal. Apart from this, almost all of the essential oils, carrier oils and absolutes are in stock with us. We request your patience and understanding during these difficult times.

Our organically crafted Star Anise Essential Oil is steam distilled from the seeds of the star-shaped fruits of the Illicium verum plant - native to southeast China, Vietnam, India and Japan. Star Anise has been used in Chinese medicine for over 1,300 years for its effects on the digestive system and for respiratory systems.

Star Anise Essential Oil has an intensely spicy-sweet, pungent, warm, licorice-like aroma, with a deep balsamic-woody undertone. Trans-anethole is the predominant chemical constituent in Star Anise (70-95%) and accounts for the licorice-like scent similar to yet sweeter than that of Fennel. It is sometimes confused with Anise Essential Oil, but they are different species and have somewhat different properties.


Star Anise Essential Oil is used in massage formulations to help alleviate muscular aches and pains. When used in soap, Star Anise is said to mask human odors, making it a good addition to fisherman's or hunters soap. It blends especially well with essential oils that are in the wood, resin, herbaceous, spice and citrus families. Star Anise Essential Oil is wonderful to use year-round, but it is especially lovely for seasonal use during the Autumn and Winter seasons. It wonderful for use in home fragrancing, diffusion and potpourri blends. Star Anise Essential Oil is also believed to be helpful during a woman's normal transition to menopause. It helps ease the sudden heat and sweating which often is present during this trying time in women's lives.

Emotionally and energetically, Star Anise Essential Oil is uplifting and comforting, and especially welcome in blends when one is feeling overly withdrawn or fearful. This essential oil increases mental clarity, provides inner strength, and sparks motivation.
