Fennel: For Your Digestive Needs

Fennel: an evergreen perennial from the Mediterranean grown in herb and vegetable gardens. Known for an aroma reminiscent of sweet licorice, Fennel introduces savor in a variety of dishes such as biscuits, salads, and roasts. However, the essential oil can be used far beyond the culinary realm. Fennel holds beneficial characteristics for overall wellness, including respiratory and digestive health.


  • Cooking Fennel adds a potent spark for many unique dishes. Dip a toothpick into Fennel and add this essential oil into homemade sausage or soup for an authentic anise flavor.
  • Digestion Add a drop or two into your water or in a DoTERRA Veggie Capsule as a dietary supplement for digestive benefits. You can rub two-to-three drops of diluted Fennel onto your abdomen for discomfort.
  • Sugar-Cravings The sweet flavor of Fennel can be useful when avoiding processed sugar and sweets because trans anethole, an important chemical component in Fennel, maintains a flavor thirteen times sweeter than table sugar. Take a drop of Fennel in water or green juice for sweet-tooth cravings.
  • Bloat and Metabolism Sluggish or bloated? Take Fennel via water or veggie capsule. Fennel promotes healthy metabolism, liver function, and circulation.
  • Respiratory Health As a supplement or in a diffuser, Fennel supports the health of the lungs and respiratory tract. Add a few drops in your water or another beverage or add 1–2 drops in a DoTERRA Veggie Capsule.
  • Concentration Need an extra push? Fennel maintains an elaborate and potent aroma that induces focus and productivity. Diffuse in your home or office.
