Anise essential oil is obtained from the seed of the annual herb anise, also known as aniseed, a member of the carrot and dill family that is native to the Mediterranean region. Due to a high concentration of anethole, the oil has a sweet, licorice-like aroma and is used in perfumery and to produce dental products.
