    Anise is also known as Pempinella anisum or Pimpinella anisum, Anise Seed, Aniseed, Hua-hsian and Sweet Cumin. Anise is an annual herb of the Apiacea / Umbelliferae family, commonly known as the Parsley or Carrot family. Anise is native to the Middle Ease and Southwest Asia, Its flavor resembles that of Licorice, Star Anise, Fennel and Tarragon. Anise is healthful for you and some of the nutrients are Vitamin C, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Protein, Zinc, Copper, Iron and Fiber.

    anise plant

    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. The seeds were used as a diuretic, to treat digestive problems, and to relieve toothache. Although mainly used in food, its licorice flavor has been used medicinally as a treatment for abdominal upsets and intestinal gas, as well as a breath freshener. Mothers over the ages have used aniseed tea for upset tummys.

    Anise 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. Hippocrates recommended it to clear the respiratory system and to treat coughs. Dioscorides listed it as a medicinal plant and wrote that anise "warms, dried and dissolves". The Romans used it as a form of currency. Charlemagne, in the 9th century, commanded that anise be grown on the imperial farms. People in Latin America have used it both as a culinary item and a medicinal herb. In medieval times, Anise was used as a gargle with Honey and Vinegar to treat tonsillitis. Spanish colonists brought it to the New World in the 16th century. Germans believed so strongly in the medicinal value of Anise that during the 1800s they often flavored their household bread with whole Aniseed.


    The dried fruits, referred to as Aniseed, provide an aromatic touch due to their essence that is formed primarily by anethol, a compound that besides being aromatic, is very sweet. It has been found that anethol has more sweetening power than sugar itself, which is why when you chew on the Aniseed fruit, it is so sweet tasting to us.

    This compound appears abundantly in other spices, like fennel, tarragon, or basil, also used abundantly in the kitchen. Between the medicinal plants that contain more proportion of anethol is licorice (liquorice) or peppermint, which is why when you chew the seeds of Anise these taste a lot of licorice, a plant unrelated to Anise. Anise tastes sweet, pleasant, quite similar to fennel, another spice that contains similar principles, although Anise is something sweeter than Fennel.

    anise seed

    Anise seed today is still used both medicinally and in food. Anise, as a spice, is used in preparations like the French soup of bouillabaisse. In Spain, it is used for preparing bagels, rolls of anise, the Andalusian anise cakes. In England, aniseed balls are made, a sweet rounded inside which there is a whole fruit. In Italy it is used to flavor and give aroma to pizzeles, very popular during the Yule season, the drops of Anise or Anise cakes. In Germany, anisbrod or Anise bread, a type of bread that contains Aniseed is manufactured. In Argentina, Mendoza tablets are produced. In many places the fresh leaves of Anise or Aniseed are used to decorate the salads. These same crushed leaves can be used to give more flavor to the fish, combining well with salmon. Anise is often used in Mediterranean kitchens, especially the Italian, French and Portuguese, as well as in the German and English kitchen and the kitchens of the Middle East.

    Besides being used in the meals, the essence of Aniseed is part of many drinks to which they contribute to the aroma and sweetness. This essence is obtained by the distillation of Aniseed with alcohol vapor. The steam carries the essence of alcohol that is mixed with other components for the production of alcoholic beverages in many places of the world. The most important of all is anisette, as it is called in France, or Anise, but also very well known are other drinks like absenta, vermouth or pastis. Very famous commercial liquors that contain Anise essence are the French Pernod and Chartreuse, the Becherovka Czech, the Greek Ouzo or the Moroccan Arak.

    Southern Russia, Bulgaria, Germany, Malta, Spain, Italy, and North Africa produce the largest quantities. The main producing country is Spain, whose Anise highlights in aroma, higher oil content and better presence. Other important producing countries are Turkey and Egypt. 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.


    No need to buy anise seeds at the garden store for planting. Just like coriander and dill, the seeds you have in your pantry will sprout just fine. Sow seeds in spring directly in the ground about 1/2-inch deep in rows a couple feet apart. An annual growing up to 3 feet, anise puts down a long taproot with lacy foliage, small white and yellow flowers. The leaves at the base of the plant are simple, 3/8 to 2 inches long and shallowly lobed, while leaves higher on the stem are feathery pinnate, divided into numerous leaves. The flowers are approximately 1/8 inch in diameter and produced in dense umbels. The fruit is an oblong dry schizocarp, 1/8 to 1/4 inch long, usually called "Aniseed".

    Anise prefers slight, fertile, dry well-drained soil. The seeds should be planted as soon as the ground warms up in spring. Because the plants have a taproot, they do not transplant well after being established, so they should be started either in their final location or transplanted while the seedlings are still small. Anise produces lots of seeds, which is the part of the plant that we mainly use. Once established, it does not transplant well. It can be planted behind Tarragon to give the Tarragon some much needed shade from the hot sun in the afternoon. Harvest young leaves for salads and seeds for tea, etc. Store seeds in cool, dry place away from heat and light.


    Some herbs do better being planted next to certain other herbs and garden plants and not so well when planted next to some others. This is a short, basic recommendation for companion planting to have a happy garden. Anise is a food plant for the larvae of some butterfly and moths, including the lime-speck pug and wormwood pug.

    GOOD: Anise and Coriander love each other. Anise will germinate quicker if sown near Coriander. This also improves seed formation of Anise. And Coriander grows even better when planted near Anise. Beans grow better when planted near Anise. Anise deters aphids, fleas, reduces cabbage worms.

    BAD: Do not plant Anise next to Carrots, Basil and Rue.



    Anise is a member of the family of plants that includes carrots, caraway, cumin, dill, fennel, and cilantro. It has a strong licorice-like flavor and scent, and the essential oil is used to flavor licorice candy. Foods with licorice flavoring often contain Anise and not any licorice at all. The sweet fragrance of the anise fruit and its essential oil is due to to trans-anethole, making up to 90-percent of the oil. Other components of the taste and smell of anise include estragol (iso-anethole), anise aldehyde, anise alcohol, p-methoxy-acetophenone, pinene, limonene, and gamma-himachalene (2-percent). The process of heating anise in baked goods releases compounds that act as very mild stimulants. The anethole released in grinding and baking slows the decay of the baked goods that otherwise might result from fungi or molds. Anise is also used to flavor many herbal medicines.

    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 Anise Essential Oil 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.

  • Aromatherapy: Anise Essential Oil Information


    Western cuisines have long used Anise to flavor some dishes, drinks and candies. The most powerful flavor component of the essential oil of Anise, anethole, is found in both Anise and an unrelated spice called Star Anise (Illicium verum) widely used in South Asian, Southeast Asian, and East Asian dishes. Star anise is considerably less expensive to produce, and has gradually displaced Pimpinella anisum in Western markets. Anise seeds, with their licorice flavor, are used to flavor candies, cakes, breads, curries and cookies. Italian anise cookies are popular. Anise also flavors liquours and spirits, like Absinthe (the "green fairy") and Sambuca. Fresh leaves can be added to salads and vegetables.

    Anise is sweet and very aromatic, distinguished by its characteristic flavor. The seeds, whole or powdered, are used in a wide variety of regional and ethnic confectioneries, including the black jelly bean, British aniseed balls, Australian humbugs, New Zealand aniseed wheels, Italian pizzelle, German Pfeffernusse and Springerle, Austrian Anisbogen, Netherland muisjes, Norwegian knotts, New Mexican Bizcochitos, and Peruvian picarones. It is a key ingredient in Mexican atole de anis or champurrado, which is similar to hot chocolate, and it is taken as a digestive after meals in India. The Ancient Romans often served spiced cakes with aniseed, called mustaceoe at the end of feasts as a digestive. This tradition of serving cake at the end of festivities is the basis for the tradition of serving cake at weddings.

    Anise is used to flavor Middle Eastern Arak, Colombian Aguardiente, French spirits Absinthe, Anisette, and Pastis, Greek Ouzo, Bularian Mastika, Macedonian Macmuka, German Jagermeister, Italian Sambuca, Dutch Brokmopke, Portuguese, Peruvian and Spanis Anis, Mexican Xtabentun and Turkish Raki. In these liquors, it is clear, but on addition of water becomes cloudy, a phenomenon known as the ouzo effect. It is believed to be one of the secret ingredients in the French liqueur Chartreuse. It is also used in some root beers, such as Virgil's in the United States.


  • Anise, like Fennel, contains anethole, a phytoestrogen.
  • Anise has been used to treat menstrual cramps.
  • The main use of Anise in European herbal medicine was for its carminative effect, as noted by John Gerard in his "Great Herball," an early encyclopedia of herbal medicine.
  • Anise Essential Oil has reportedly been used as an insecticide against head-lice and mites.


  • In the 1860s, American Civil War nurse Maureen Hellstrom used Anise seeds as an early form of antiseptic. This method was later found to have caused high levels of toxicity in the blood and was discontinued shortly thereafter.
  • According to Pliny the Elder, Anise was used as a cure for sleeplessness, chewed with alexanders and a little Honey in the morning to freshen the breath, and, when mixed with wine, as a remedy for asp bites
  • In Pakistani and Indian cuisine, no distinction is made between Anise and Fennel. Therefore, the same name (saunf) is usually given to both of them. Some use the term patli (thin) saunf or velayati (foreign) saunf to distinguish anise from fennel, although Gujarati has the term anisi.
  • In the Middle East, water is boiled with about a tablespoon of Aniseed per teacup to make a special hot tea called yansoon. This tea is given to mothers in Egypt when they are nursing.
  • Builders of steam locomotives in Britain incorporated capsules of Aniseed Oil into white metal plain bearings, so the distinctive smell would give warning in case of overheating.
  • Anise can be made into a liquid scent and is used for both drag hunting and fishing. It is put on fishing lures to attract fish.
  • Aniseis frequently used to add flavor to mu'assel, particularly the double apple flavor.


    A recipe used to help get rid of headcold and sore throat problems. It is pleasant to drink.

    Throw a handful of Aniseed and/or Star Anise, a sprig of Rosemary, a sprig of Peppermint in a pot of water. Bring it to a boil and remove from heat. Pour tea through a strainer into a coffee mug. Add a teapoon of Honey.


    A favorite recipe used by mothers for their families when upset stomachs or cramps are a problem. The tea is also expectorant and aromatic. Warm milk flavored with Anise and Honey makes a relaxing bedtime beverage. This recipe can also be enjoyed as an evening tea with a slice of homemade bread (see recipe below).

    1 teaspoon Anise Seeds
    1 cup Boiling Water
    Honey, Stevia, and/or Lemon (Optional)

    Pour boiling water over anise seeds. Let steep a few minutes, until the tea is as strong as you like, approximately 3 minutes. Sweeten with honey or stevia to taste, along with lemon if you like.


    Soda breads can be dry. However, this is one that is nice and moist and incredibly flavorful. It can become addictive when served warm from the oven. It would be perfect alongside a simple Irish stew for St. Patrick's Day.

    2 cups All-Purpose Flour
    3/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
    1/2 teaspoon Salt
    3 tablespoons Sugar
    1/2 cup (1 stick) Butter, Softened 1/2 generous cup Dried Fruit such as Raisins, Currants, Cranberries, Cherries
    2 teaspoons Caraway Seed
    1/2 teaspoon Anise Seed
    1 cup Sour Cream
    Raw Sugar for sprinkling on top (optional, but good)

    Preheat oven to 375°F. Mix flour, soda, salt, sugar and butter until mixture is crumbly. Add raisins, caraway and sour cream. Beat gently until blended. Form into mound-shaped circle on sprayed cookie sheet. Brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake 45 to 55 minutes. Do not overbake. When toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, bread is done.


    Take about 1/2 cup of Aniseed and put into a cup of Honey. Put a tight lid on the mixture and store in a dark pantry for about 8 weeks, shaking the jar every day or few days. After about 6 months, the seeds can be strained out of the honey. Put the seeds in another jar and use them for baking, if desired. The Honey-Aniseed syrup is the cough syrup. Kids love the honey-candied seeds.


    4 tablespoons Unsalted Butter, plus extra for greasing the pan
    1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
    1/4 cup Dark Corn Syrup
    1/4 cup Sweetened Condensed Milk
    2 tablespoons Molasses (Use Blackstrap for the strongest flavor)
    Pinch Kosher Salt
    6 tablespoons Whole Wheat Flour
    1/2 teaspoon Black Food Coloring Gel
    3/4 tablespoon Anise Extract (Use 1 tablespoon for a stronger flavor)

    1. Line a 9 X 5 X 3-inch bread loaf pan with parchment paper, leaving excess to for handles for easy removal.
    2. Grease the parchment paper with extra butter.
    3. Clip a (calibrated) candy thermometer to the side of a heavy 2-quart saucepan, being sure that the gauge is not resting directly on the bottom of the pan.
    4. Add the butter, sugar, corn syrup, condensed milk, molasses, and salt. Turn the heat to medium and bring to a gentle boil. Stir the mixture frequently to prevent scorching in the corners.
    5. Once the mixture reaches 240°F, remove it from the heat, and immediately stir in the flour and black food coloring gel. Once they are fully incorporated, stir in the anise extract.
    6. Pour the mixture into the buttered loaf pan and let it set in the fridge for 30 minutes.
    7. Remove from the pan, and either dice it into squares or slice it into ropes and twist.


    A healthier version of homemade licorice.

    1 cup Molasses
    1 teaspoon powdered Licorice Root (or to taste)
    1 teaspoon dried Anise Root, powdered (or to taste)
    1 cup flour (enough to make a workable dough)
    Powdered Sugar

    Boil the molasses gently for 5 minutes. Be careful it does not burn. Cool. When it is still very warm, add the licorice root powder and the dried anise powder. Mix in enough flour so the dough is workable. Take a small amount and roll it into a tube, 1/2-inch diameter. Cut into desired lengths. Place on cookie sheets and allow to dry. The licorice will harden when cool. Wrap individual pieces in parchment paper to keep pieces from sticking to each other during storage.



    The parts of the Anise plant used are the whole dried "fruit" or seed. Typical preparations include whole or ground fruits, although flavor is better if the fruits are stored whole and then ground just before use. Anise is used in French carrot dishes, East Indian curries, Hispanic stews, and Scandinavian breads. It balances the flavors of Bay Leaf and Cinnamon. Anise is also used to flavor liqueurs such as ouzo, anisette, pastis, Pernod, Ricard, anesone, ojen, aguardiente, arrak, kabib, and raki.

    Anise comes in various forms and is an ingredient in many products. To make Anise tea, add 7 teaspoons of Aniseed to 1 quart of boiling water. Add Honey and Glycerin. Take 2 teaspoons every few hours to relieve dry coughs, take 2 tablespoons 3 times a day to improve memory. For skin problems, increasing milk production, or for use as a stomach aid, drink 2 to 4 cups daily. For other formulations, read and follow product label directions.



    Anise is generally regarded as safe when taken in the recommended doses. Allergies are possible, but rare. The anethole in the essential oil stimulates the release of estrogen in laboratory tests, but is not known to be of significant benefit or detriment to hormonal balance in humans. Not recommended for use by pregnant women, except what is used as seasoning in cooking. Do not use Anise essential oil or any essential oil internally without a health care provider's supervision.

    Anise seed (Pimpinella anisium) - A seed-like fruit, anise seed delivers a warm, sweet, licorice-like flavor to sweet and savory dishes alike. Try it in everything from fruit pies, cookies, and cakes to slaws, liquors, and meat dishes. It is potent, so start with just a pinch! Anise is a member of the Umbelliferae family which also includes fennel, caraway, coriander and dill, to name a few. It requires a long, warm, frost-free growing season of at least 120 days, and thrives in poor, dry soil. Growing to a height of 18 inches, the plant features small white flowers in early summer. The seeds appear in late summer and are light greenish-brown to brown when dried. Although the seed has an aroma and flavor reminiscent of licorice, the two are completely unrelated. The dry, ripe fruits (seeds) should be harvested between July and September. Anise seed is used extensively to flavor liquors, cookies, cakes, fruit dishes, coleslaw, rye bread, apple pie and meats. It also makes a wonderful addition to teas. Used primarily with the digestive system as it relieves flatulence and helps to improve the appetite; helps allay the pain of colic; promotes milk production in nursing mothers; helps to remove excess mucus from the system. Helps improve appetite, relieves flatulence, allys the pain of colic, promotes milk prodution in nursing mothers, and helps to remove excess mucus from the body. Helps to normalize estrogen levels. More than a flavoring, Anise soothes the digestive tract and contains B vitamins, calcium, magnesium, and iron.
