100% Pure (Whole) Fennel Seeds

Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) is cultivated in Europe, North America, Asia & Egypt (where the majority of our stock comes from).

The seeds have traditionally been used to treat digestive complaints such as constipation, indigestion, heartburn & colic.

In combination with Peppermint, Carraway it can be effective in treating irritable bowel syndrome; in combination with Chamomile (German), Liquorice, Vervain & Lemon balm, studies show it to be effective at relieving colic.

The major constituents include the terpenoid anethole. Terpenoids inhibit spasms in the type of muscles found in the intestinal tract. This is thought to contribute to fennel’s use as a carminative (wind-relieving) herb.

Fennel was formerly an official drug in the United States and was listed as being used for indigestion.

1 to 1.5 teaspoons (5–7 grams) of seeds per day are recommended.

A tea can be made by boiling half a teaspoon (2-3g) of crushed seed per 250ml of water for ten to fifteen minutes (keeping covered). Leave the heated decoction to cool then strain and drink up to three times a day.

Alternatively 1-2 teaspoons of tincture (5-10ml) can be taken up to three times a day between meals.

Other Fennel seeds benefits include its diuretic (increasing urine production & prevent water retention) & choleretic (increase in bile production) actions.
