Pure 100% undiluted, unadulterated aromatherapeutic essential oil of anise seed.

Safety/Cautions: This essential oil can cause dermatitis in some sensitive people and should be avoided by anyone with allergic or inflammatory skin conditions. It has been reported that large doses can be narcotic and cause decreased cerebral circulation, which can lead to cerebral disorders. Use in moderation only. See our safety caution above under reproductive system.

Aniseed contains a high percentage of (E)-Anethole which is known to inhibit platelet aggregation, which means it inhibits the bloods ability to clot. This oil should, therefore, be avoided if you are taking other blood thinners, or immediately prior to or following a surgery, much like the doctors' office tells you when to stop taking aspirin before surgery.

Because of the high percentage of (E)-Anethole, this oil should not be used during pregnancy.

This oil has a potential carcinogenic possibility relative to its anethole content.

Use in pregnancy? Should not be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding or with any estrogen-dependent type cancers.  

Use with children? Should not be used with children five years of age and younger.

IMPORTANT: All of our products are for external use only unless under the guidance of a qualified medical professional and certified aromatherapist.

In addition, Essential Oils must be properly diluted before use in order to avoid any damages to property or adverse physical effects (including injury or bodily harm).
