Escentia Fennel, Sweet (Foeniculum vulgare) Essential Oil

Sizes: 11ml, 22ml, 50ml, 100ml & 500ml

Sweet Fennel Essential Oil's diuretic action can be helpful in dispersing cellulitis. Can also help with hiccough, nausea and vomiting. It's an anti-spasmodic and therefore can be helpful in treating bronchitis and whooping cough. Sweet Fennel is quite a gentle oil, but it mustn’t be confused with Bitter Fennel which can be toxic and a skin irritant.
