The star anise tree is an evergreen indigenous to southeastern Asia. In Chinese culture, the plant is called “eight-horned anise” or simply “eight horns,” referring to the usually shaped fruit with eight-follicles.
The essential oil is steam distilled from the fruit, seed, and leaf of the star anise tree. Taking Star Anise internally helps support a healthy cardiovascular system. In aromatherapy, Star Anise blends extremely well with floral and wood essential oils for an emotionally balancing experience.
