Fennel Sweet Essential Oil, steam-distilled from the crushed seeds of the Foeniculum vulgare plant, exudes a sweet, licorice-like fragrance with herbaceous undertones. This perennial herb, reaching up to 2 meters in height, features feathery leaves and golden-yellow flowers. There are two varieties of fennel: bitter Fennel, slightly taller and found both cultivated and wild, and sweet fennel, exclusively cultivated. Sweet Fennel is believed to have originated on the island of Malta, introduced by monks or crusaders thousands of years ago. Historically, fennel has been utilized for various purposes, including culinary applications and traditional herbal practices.
