Distilled in Vietnam from fresh star anise fruit
This anise is beautiful, of incomparable quality. Anise gives flavouring to many popular liquors--Pernod (France,) Raki (Turkey,) Ouzo (Greece,) etc. Most anise essential oils are distilled form the dried spice. The difference between those grim little oils and the heavenly singing of this fresh and fabulous one is incredible!
Anise is often associated with baking and usually this means something good, something comforting and relaxing. So use in a room diffuser to warm and cheer your space, especially in autumn and winter.
Remember when cooking, esssential oils are very strong and can easily overwhelm other flavors. If more than one drop finds its way into your recipe, it will become inedible.
Otherwise, use with common sense. Topical use, inhalation, I can't say take it internally but that would seem effective if you want to use it as a flavoring.
