Illicium Verum Fruit Oil

Star anise essential oil is used in massage formulations to help relieve muscle pain. When used in soap, star anise is said to mask human odors, making it a good addition to fisherman's or hunter's soap. It blends particularly well with essential oils found in the woody, resinous, 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 fall and winter seasons. It is wonderful for use in home fragrance, diffusion and potpourri mixes. Star anise essential oil is also believed to be helpful during a woman's normal transition to menopause. It helps relieve the sudden hot flashes and sweating that are often present during this trying time in women's lives.
