Illicium verum, a type of evergreen tree endemic to areas of Vietnam and China, produces star anise. The tree produces a fruit known as star anise, which the Chinese refer to as “eight-horned anise” because of the fruit’s eight star-shaped pericarps (arms).
Star anise can be consumed fresh or dried. The tree’s leaves are poisonous, and they aren’t employed in any Eastern folk medicine therapies. Star anise has long been used to aid sleep, relieve joint discomfort, relieve muscular aches, and enhance digestion, all of which assist the immune system.
You can diffuse a few drops of the oil into a diffuser or vaporizer and put it in your room. Alternatively, you can add about 5-6 drops of the oil in a tub of warm, bathing water and soak inside for a few minutes to destress and relax your mind.
Fun fact / did you know ? While gum and mints are popular in the United States and other areas of the world for breath freshening, star anise seeds are more popular in India and Pakistan for chewing after a meal. (The antimicrobial properties may also help with dental hygiene.)
