Smell: Smelling grass slightly as spice
During the Middle Ages it was known in Europe as "Fenkle" and was widespread among the ancient Greeks, Egyptians and Romans, who believed that confers longevity, courage and strength, as well as protecting them from evil spirits.
It offers great help in treating anorexia, vomiting, colic, indigestion. It has diuretic properties that help in the disappearance of cellulite. It gives a clean and tonic effect on the skin, combating the greasy skin, but rather removes wrinkles from dry and aged skin. It has a stimulating effect on the spleen and liver and very good results in cases of overeating and excessive drinking. It also helps nursing mothers in the production of sufficient milk.
All the above referred to the action of the essential oil of fennel and not the fresh plant which has different effects when used.
