Cultivation of Aniseed was first adopted by the Egyptians and later the Greeks, slowly becoming known in the rest of Europe during the middle ages. With very aromatic properties, this herb was valued not only medicinally but also for its fresh spicy taste. The Romans had a wide variety of uses for aniseed from preventing nightmares to being taken as a digestive after heavy meals. With bright green feathery leaves, this slender plant displays sprays of small white or pale yellow blooms that form in bunches in an umbrella shape. Find all our Aniseed products below.
