Common Name: A tall Mediterranean herb which is used in cooking and in salads.
Usage: Recommended for urinary tract problems or to calm digestive issues such as upset stomach nausea and vomiting.

Nursing mothers should only use the fresh herb not the oil as it is too strong.

Diffuse the essential oil to promote appetite and to create a positive uplifting mindset when there is adversity.
Precautions:Avoid fennel if you have estrogen related health issues. Epileptics should also avoid Fennel because it is a nervous system stimulant. Can have a narcotic affect when used in large doses.
