Product Abstract: Star Anise is a smaller plant belonging to the Magnolia family, native to China and Vietnam, although today it’s grown almost exclusively in Southwest China and Japan. The fruit is small, only about an inch and quarter tall (3 cm) and star shaped with 5 to 10 points. The fruit is picked unripe and sun-dried before it is used. The Japanese plant the tree in their temples and on tombs, and pound the bark for use as incense. Star Anise is generally non-toxic and non-irritating and should not be confused with Illicium anisatum, a Japanese variety that is toxic.

Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.

Review This Product
Rating: Star
I bought this Anise EO for use in soap making and I love it! It is a really beautiful smelling oil. If you like the smell of licorice, then this EO is perfect (it smells just like black licorice), and a little goes a long way, too. I used it to make an anise-banana, oatmeal and cream soap, and it is wonderful (it's one of my favourite soaps, now)! Just an FYI - it may cause some discoloration in CP or CPOP soaping, causing it to turn brown (or it could have been the fresh banana that I used in the soap :), but the scent is amazingly lovely. I love that it's organic, am very happy with the purchase, and would order this again.
