This exotic spicy oil can bring an energised atmosphere to a room when used in a diffuser or burner. It is very powerful so a little goes a long way. It blends well with many other essential oils so why not try creating your own essential oil blends.

Star Anise essential oil has a charming, sweet, spicy and liquorice-like aroma. It can bring an exotic spicy vibe to your homemade formulations. It is ideal for soaps, massage oils, aromatherapy blends, candles and more.

Dilution

Dilute at a percentage of 1% of the finished blend, 1ml of essential oil (approx. 20 drops) to 100ml of carrier oil. Do not use undiluted on the skin. Consult your doctor or midwife before using during pregnancy. 

Aromatherapy

Add a couple of drops to your diffuser or burner and enjoy the exotic, spicy aroma of Star Anise. 

Massage

Dilute Star Anise in a carrier oil of your choice and combine with other essential oils to create your very own personalised massage oil blend. We love Almond Sweet (#215) and Apricot Kernel (#204) s the base carrier oils for the essential oils. 

In the bath

For a relaxing spa experience at home, dilute Star Anise with one of our carrier oils and add to your warm bath. The spicy aroma will help you feel relaxed and the carrier oil will leave your skin silky soft. Win, win!

Beauty Hack

Bring an old potpourri back to life by adding a couple of drops of Star Anise. Try adding it with your other favourite essential oils to rejuvenate and revive potpourri and fill the room with a beautiful aroma.

 
As with any new product always conduct a patch test before first use.
