Anise General Information
Anise is to dogs, what catnip is to cats, but for humans it has both culinary and medicinal uses. This herb belongs to the same family as parsley and carrots and has been cultivated in Egypt for at least 4,000 years. Ancient Egyptian medical texts showed Anise was used as a diuretic, for treating digestive problems, and to relieve a toothache. Dioscorides, an early Greek physician, claimed Anise facilitated breathing, relieved pain, and increased urine production. Anise has laxative, diuretic, and antispasmodic properties. Anise seed has a sweet, licorice flavor and is also used to sweeten cakes, pastries, and cookies.

When and Where Anise Grows
Anise It is native to Egypt, Greece, Crete and Asia Minor and was cultivated by the Ancient Egyptians. It was well known to the Greeks, being mentioned by Dioscorides and Pliny and was cultivated in Tuscany in Roman times. In the Middle Ages its cultivation spread to Central Europe. In this country Anise has been in use since the 14th Century and has been cultivated in English gardens from the middle of the 16th Century but it ripens its seeds here only in very warm summers and its is chiefly in warmer districts that it is grown on a commercial scale. Southern Russia, Bulgaria, Germany, Malta, Spain, Italy, and North Africa produce the largest quantities. The cultivated plant is considerably larger than the wild plant. Anise is an annual growing to two feet, puts down a long taproot and produces small white and yellow flowers as well as a fruit that, when dried out, is referred to as aniseed.

Anise Uses & Scientific Evidence For
The German Commission E endorses Anise as an expectorant and cough suppressor because it clears mucus from air passages. It can be used in treating asthma, whooping cough, bronchitis, and other types of coughs. Anise tea soothes stomach irritation, gas, bloating, and works as an antacid for heartburn and indigestion, and is used for infants and children with colic. Anise also helps increase milk production in nursing mothers and is helpful with menopausal problems. The tea also reduces oily skin and improves your memory. The seeds can be chewed for a breath freshener. The essential oil of Anise can be used externally for lice and scabies. Some people who have used estrogenic herbs like Anise, report positive androgenil (male sex hormone) effects. Anise is also high in anethole, a compound which produces positive effects in women with inhibited sexual desire.
