Fennel Essential Oil - Fennel Seed Tea - Fennel Seed Tincutre

Fennel Essential Oil - Fennel Seed Tea - Fennel Seed Tincutre

The ancient Greeks placed great emphasis on Fennel, its symbolism as well as its medicinal, magical and culinary uses. Indigo Herbs is a great believer in spreading ancient plant wisdom and so we offer three great Fennel products: Fennel Essential Oil, Fennel Tincture and Fennel Seed Tea. These three comprise the essence of this refreshing plant and can be utilised to help in whatever capacity you see fit.

Not only does Fennel feature heavily in the medical practice of the ancient Greeks, it also has a place in their mythology. When Prometheus introduced fire to the human race he used a fennel stalk topped with a pine cone as the vessel to carry it. In the temples of Dionysus a fennel stalk and pine cone sceptre called a ‘Thyrsus’ was used in a ceremonial capacity and as a wand. The Athenian Pheidippides, in one version of the well-known legend, brought a stalk of Fennel from the field of Marathon with him when he brought news of the Persian invasion to Athens. A medicinal quality of Fennel is that it is known to be able to suppress hunger and so it is thought that Pheidippides ate the fennel as he was running to Athens. The word ‘Marathon’ has a triple meaning; firstly for the Greeks it was known to mean ‘Place of Fennel’ and from the root word ‘marino’ which means ‘to become thin’ – and thirdly it is the name of the longest distance run in the Olympic Games.

The Greek uses of Fennel probably came from the Egyptians who included it in the burials of their Pharaohs and as mentioned in the 3,500 year old Ebers Papyrus, was a remedy for flatulence. The Romans thought that Fennel induced strength and so many Roman soldiers included it in their diet. The Roman physician Pliny subscribed Fennel to 22 different blended remedies mentioning this herb had the power to be able to clear ‘darkened sight’.

Fennel is a perennial plant that grows from a large round fibrous juicy bulb that sprouts 5 to 6 stalks. The stems are hollow with very thin feathery web like leaves. The whole plant resembles a fountain of water coming from the ground. The flowers also come out in sprays of tiny yellow sprays in the summer that then turn into a small brown seeds.

Using Aromatherapy in your daily routine is simple, easy and can be enormously beneficial. Pure neat essential oils can be evaporated into the environment and inhaled while products that have already been diluted in an oil can be applied straight to the skin. There are lots of different ways to utilize the pure neat essential oils; these can be made into a room spray or used in an an essential oil burner/ vaporizer.

This is a lovely way to perfume an environment and essential oils are very good at effecting the mood, mind and emotions when evaporated into the air. Adding essential oils to your bath is the best way to ensure the oils are absorbed through the pores of the skin while also inhaling the vapors; maximum benefit can then be had whilst enjoying a soak. Additionally the neat oils can be diluted into a carrier medium. This can be a cream, body butter, face cream, vegetable body oil and bath salts to name a few. For full instructions go to our How to use Aromatherapy page.

Fennel essential oil can be used in the bath, or vaporized in an oil burner. It can be added to a massage oil or cream. Use 6-8 drops per bath and 10 -18 drops per 30ml of carrier oil. See Essential Oil Dosage Chart

  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. 
  • 100% pure botanical ingredients, absolutely nothing added.
  • Bottled in a pharmacoepial grade brown glass bottle.

Manufacture Process

Our essential oils are manufactured to GMP standards using steam distillation, extraction or expression. During steam distillation the plant matter is put into boiling water or infused with steam. The steam is collected and the oils are separated from the water. During extraction, a solvent is used to extract the oil, by creating a concrete. This concrete is made up of plant matter, resins, waxes, and essential oils. A second solvent, such as ethyl alcohol is used to extract the essential oils from the concrete, this creates an absolute. During expression the plant matter is pressed (at cool temperatures) to release the oils.

Essential oils need to be diluted first; never apply an essential oil directly to the skin. Avoid contact with eyes and mouth. Rosemary should be avoided during pregnancy because it is a uterine stimulant. Excessive amounts can cause symptoms of poisoning. It should also be avoided by epileptics.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Grab a pan (preferably just used for herbs) The botanical ingredients can be made into a herbal tea by decocting the herb by immersing in boiling water over a low heat for 10 minutes, this extracts the phyto-chemicals from the seeds.

These Fennel plants have been grown and cultivated in Egypt where they have been tended in crops to full maturity. When the Fennel seeds are ready to be harvested they are separated from the plant matter mechanically and then vibration cleaned in special machines. This is to separate any microscopic debris from the seed and make sure they are totally free of any pollutants. Only the very best seed is used in our Fennel seed tea and this is made sure of by further testing for microbial activity and heavy metals. The seed is then made ready for shipping. This process complies with GMP standards and is quality assured by Indigo Herbs.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice.

This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.
