FENNEL Foeniculum vulgare Seeds NOT FOR USE DURING PREGNANCY Spain
This herb detoxifies the kidney, spleen and reduces water retention as it minimizes cellulite. The essential oil is a valuable tonic. With improving digestion it helps to act as a diuretic and lymphatic toner, moving out toxins by ridding fats and fluids. As an aromatic carminative it helps to vitalize and strengthen body systems. Fennel is much like licorice in its flavor and it also has some similar attributes. When one has some tummy disturbances, the flavor is most always appealing. Usually we crave what our body needs, especially if we are in tune with this intuitiveness. Fennel will improve digestion and it also eases nausea.
It is not recommended for use during pregnancy, yet afterwards it will increase the supply of sweet breast milk during lactation and is a valuable component to alleviate problems if engorgment occurs. Fennel is especially good for the baby’s digestion through Mama’s milk. This herb performs many valuable functions particularly with women. Using Fennel will help balance hormones throughout the various changes that women go through during their life span. Virgin, Mother and Crone all relate to this aromatic botanical. Fennel was known for fertility in magical protective charms, aiding vitality and coneption. During menopause this essential oil assists with the natural production of estrogen. I am not a doctor so I may not recommend taking any essential oil internally as medicine. I can tell you though that with certain essential oils I do use in various ways. Also, it is our own free will to use our knowledge and experience the healing benefits of nature as we desire. My goal is to speak of the botanicals that I know and have seen experiences of literally thousands of people from the past three decades. I know women who use fennel, drink herb tea and incorporate aromatherapy along with nutrition with their mindset who are thriving in their menopausal years.
