Medicinal Usage

The Greeks, including Hippocrates (who suggested it for coughs); the people of Asia Minor, and the Romans found many health applications for it. It can be used as a breath sweetener and an aphrodisiac, to help support flatulence and colic, to stimulate mother's milk, and to combat giddiness and nausea. By the 16th century, Europeans had discovered that anise was an irresistible bait for mice. The oil of the seed has been used to poison pigeons.

Today anise's famous licorice taste is found in both culinary and health products. Its seeds flavor cough suppresantss, cough drops, baked goods, candies, and adult drinks. Its leaves are added to salads and used as garnishes.

Anise has wide commercial popularity as a fragrance and a flavoring. Its ancient use as a carminative - that is, to help support gas pains - continues today and is substantiated by modern research.

General Herb Information

The ancient Romans were so fond of the seed of anise, with its spicy aroma and licorice taste, that they made it an ingredient of a special cake, with which they concluded their notoriously enormous feasts. But man's appreciation of anise goes back to much earlier times, for it is one of the oldest known herbs, mentioned in records long before the birth of Christ.

With its dainty white flowers that grow in umbrellalike clusters, anise looks much like Queen Anne's lace, but it is shorter and the flower clusters have no bracts.

Habitat: Warm, sunny gardens with well-drained, moderately rich, sandy soil.

Range: Cultivated throughout North America as a garden plant, anise occasionally escaped from cultivation to be found in the wild.

Identification: An annual growing 1-2 feet high with an erect, smooth stem. Leaves at the base are thick and pinnately arranged; the leaflets are oval with toothed edges. The bright green upper leaves are smaller and feathery. Tiny white to yellow blossoms (July-August) grow in umbrellalike clusters. The downy brown seedlike fruits (August-September) produce the essential oil for which this licorice-smelling herb is noted.

Pronounced with emphasis on the first syllable, anise is sometimes called aniseed, and was used in the sixteenth century as mousetrap bait, as mice could not resist it. Many humans find it irresistible, Originally from Greece and Egypt, anise traveled with the Romans to Europe and England and was one of the first herbs brought to America. It is widely cultivated and considered helpful in the support for asthma, colic, coughs, and nausea. It is also believed to promote milk production in nursing mothers, to induce sleep, and to bring on menstruation. It is frequently used as a flavoring agent in candies and adult drinks.

Plant Facts and Growing Tips

Plant: An annual, anise has two types of leaves: those that grow thickly at the base of the stem and are bright green, oval, and tooth-edged; and those on the stems, which are smaller and elongated, and each divided into three segments. Tiny white flowers grow in thick, umbrella-like clusters at the tops of the stems. Seeds are light-colored and crescent-shaped, and a small piece of stem clings to them after harvesting.

Height: 2 feet.

Soil: Light, fairly well-worked soil, enriched with compost.

Exposure: Full sun.

Propagation: By seed, sown in spring during the first or second lunar phase after the days and nights are frost-free. Anise needs a temperature of 70°F (21°C) to germinate and 120 days of frost-free weather to mature. Sow it where it is to grow because the plant has a taproot and doesn't transplant well.

Care: A slow-growing plant that tends to lie down, anise requires continual weeding. Plants should be spaced 8 inches apart. Thin seedlings or pinch them off at the ground.

Parts Used for Tea: Leaves and seeds.

Taste: Aromatic and sweet with a licorice-like taste. Good brewed with warm milk, drink this tea just before going to bed.

How to Brew

Leaves - By Infusion: 1 teaspoon dried leaf (or 3 teaspoons fresh, crushed leaf) to 1 cup boiling water. Allow to steep.

Seeds - By Decoction: Crush or grind 1 tablespoon seeds and add to 2 cups boiling water. Reduce temperature and allow mixture to simmer gently for 5 to 10 minutes.

Spicy Seed Blend Tea

Here's a good seed blend to help support nausea and promote digestion. It's refreshing, with a pleasant aftertaste:
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1 teaspoon aniseed
  • 1 teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
Bruise seeds and combine. Infuse 1 teaspoon of mixture in 1 cup boiling water and steep 5 to 8 minutes, or to taste.

Anise Seed (Pimpinella anisum) can be used to help support flatulence, indigestion, infant colic, hiccough, coughs and bronchial catarrh.

The stimulant and carminative properties of Anise make it useful in flatulency and colic. It can be used as an ingredient of cathartic and aperient pills, to help support flatulence and diminish the griping of purgative products, and may be given with perfect safety in convulsions.

Carminative and pectoral. Anise enjoys considerable reputation as a medicine in coughs and pectoral affections. In hard, dry coughs where expectoration is difficult, it is of much value. It is greatly used in the form of lozenges and the seeds have also been used for smoking, to promote expectoration.

The fruits of Anise are a popular carminative. In some northern regions, they are used in bread-making; in England they are put in gingerbread. They form the basis of Bordeaux anisette cordial; they can be used to prepare various liqueurs. Aniseed essence is a component of Anderson's Scottish pills.

Aniseed has in turn been regarded as a stimulant, stomachic, carminative, diuretic, expectorant and emmenagogue; it is used in debility of the digestive organs, stomach aches, flatulence, windy and spasmodic colics, dyspepsia, giddiness, dizziness and nervous headaches. Dioscorides claimed it was good for Ieucorrhea and to slake the thirst of hydropics; it is often given in an infusion, in a dose of 8 to 15 grams to a litre of water, for infantile colics.

Externally, Anise has been used in the form of fomentations, lotions and poultices for lacteal ecchymoses and obstructions.

Anise seed is a gray-brown oval seed from Pimpinella anisum, a plant in the parsley family. It is related to Caraway, Dill, Cumin, and Fennel. For centuries, anise has been used to flavor colognes, toothpastes, mouthwashes, and soaps. Its natural "candy licorice" flavor and aroma make it the perfect natural additive to sweet confectionary snacks and adult drinks!

Anise seed assists the body in the maintenance of both the respiratory and digestive tracts providing a soothing, tonic effect. Additionally, anise may help to preserve normal, healthy levels of friendly bacteria in the colon facilitating better digestion, elimination, and general overall health.

The active constituents in anise, particularly the terpenoid anethole, are contained in its volatile oil. The volatile oil gives the plant a delightful flavor and has been combined with other less pleasant tasting herbs to offset their taste.

Anise seeds are an all-natural spice that tastes similar to licorice. Our Anise seeds have no additives and no fillers. Anise seeds come from the Pimpinella anisum plant. Anise seeds can be used in many different sweet and savory recipes and dishes, including pies, cakes, cookies, biscotti, marinades, chicken, pork, vegetables, macaroni and cheese, sausages, lamb and much more!
