Anise…a unique scent.
Anise is an essential oil that is used (as well as anise seeds) in perfuming and cooking. Black licorice contains anise, and so does Italian sausage.
In aromatherapy, anise is said to have aphrodisiac and stimulant properties. Anise is a natural antiseptic, amongst other healthy benefits.
Me…I simply love the scent. It is clean and natural, turning out a mild soap.
Anise goat milk soap can be found in my online store, as well as Anise Lavender.
Essentials oils are readily absorbed by the skin. Always keep your specific allergies and health conditions in mind (including pregnancy). Even though I include generous proportions of essential oils in many of my soaps, the amount that the skin actually absorbs from soap is much less in quantity than from a lotion, or directly from pure essential oil.
