It also has aphrodisiac properties, is a tonic and is even repellent against certain parasites.

It is sometimes used in Indian cuisine, and also in pastries.

It is also part of the recipe of the famous Mediterranean pastis.

More information

Green anise is a herbaceous plant that grows from 20 to 60 cm tall, with an aromatic scent, originating from the Mediterranean region.

It has toothed leaves at the base of the stem, kidney-shaped in the middle, and finely cut at the top.


It has been cultivated for over 4000 years in Mediterranean countries for culinary, decorative, and especially medicinal purposes.


Its richness in anethole has been recognized for a long time, and its effects on digestion are well-known.

Anethole stimulates expectoration, it is also carminative, acaricidal, neuroprotective, anticonvulsant, anti-inflammatory, intestinal spasmolytic, and hepatoprotective.

The Ancients also used it during childbirth, as it was believed to facilitate the labor process and increase lactation.


Green anise essential oil is also (together with star anise) one of the main components of the famous aperitif (literally "appetite-opener") symbolizing vacations and the south of France: Pastis.

Other anise-flavored aperitifs can be found all around the Mediterranean: Raki in Turkey or Albania, Ouzo and Mastika in Greece, Sambuca and Anisetta in Italy, Matalauva in Spain, Kûstennebel in Germany, Ori in Armenia, Araq in the countries of the Fertile Crescent and Palestine, Anisette in Algeria, etc., etc.


Main components of the essential oil:

  • Methyl ether phenols: trans-anethole = E-anethole 80 to 95%, methyl chavicol = estragole 0.5 to 5%
  • Anisaldehyde 1.5%
  • Sesquiterpenes: gamma-himachalene, alpha-himachalene, beta-himachalene, beta-bisabolene, zingiberene
  • Monoterpenes: limonene, alpha-pinene
  • Dimer of anethole (dianethole) and anisaldehyde (dianisoin).
