Fennel essential oil, Foeniculum vulgare dulce, possesses a sweet, distinctive licorice-like aroma. In aromatherapy work, fennel is known to ease stress, has a mild sedative effect and yet is also uplifting. It is best known for its usefulness as a digestive aid, and it helps to relieve gas and indigestion. Fennel can be a bit overpowering, so use it sparingly with other oils such as lavender, lemon, rose, sandalwood, basil, cypress and bergamot.
