The star anise tree is an evergreen indigenous to
southeastern Asia. Usually the trees grow only 14-20 feet
high, but they can reach up to 65 feet. In Chinese culture,
the plant is called “eight-horned anise” or simply “eight
horns,” referring to the usually eight-follicled fruit. Anethole,
the main chemical component of Star Anise, is what creates
the characteristic licorice aroma that Star Anise essential oil
and fruit are known for. Star Anise essential oil has many
benefits, both topically and internally. Immune system
support and healthy cellular function are just a couple of the
main benefits Star Anise offers.* Star Anise is most
commonly known for its support of digestive health.* As a
main ingredient in dōTERRA DigestZen®, Star Anise can be
used to calm an occasional upset stomach.* Star Anise can
also support feelings of relaxation when taken internally.*
