Anise seed is a popular cooking and culinary spice, and has a high content of volatile oils which imparts its scent and flavor.
Anise is a beneficial folk remedy and has been used in such cases as indigestion and swelling, and nausea, or flatulence. Those with lung issues such as asthma or cough may experience relief with the use of this herb. Due to the high volatile oil content, anise seed produces an antimicrobial effect, aiding in providing relief from bronchitis when combined with other lung-appropriate herbs. Anise has a strong licorice-like flavor and is actually the main flavoring in the popular candy black licorice.
