Anise Myrtle rises from the ashes of the long-forgotten forest floor, reclaiming her natural right to heal in love and light. A century ago the trees from which this sweet, succulent oil is distilled were all but extinct in Australia. Farmers stripped the lush rainforests of their luxurious offerings, and soon sweet anise was nothing but a glinting memory.
Thanks to vast reforestation projects, Anise Myrtle is making a comeback in a big way. In addition to its dark, sweet licorice scent, this unique offering contains a myriad of healing properties for body and soul.
The Anise Myrtle leaf is one of the highest known sources of the compound anethole which gives it the aniseed flavor and aroma. Anise Myrtle Essential Oil has been traditionally used to ease reproductive and menstrual issues in women, treat chest and respiratory congestion, fight fungi, and function as a powerful aphrodisiac.
Anise Myrtle has also been shown to be a potent antibacterial agent. Studies conducted at Charles Stuart University in Australia found Anise Myrtle to be effective at fighting various types of harmful bacterium, including Staphylococcus aureus.
Emotionally, Anise Myrtle is calming, soothing, and uplifting. It has been shown to be effective in the treatment of depression, anxiety, and insomnia, and is commonly used to combat feelings of restlessness and misdirection.
