The oil factor

O&3 presents Aniseed, Essential Oil

O&3 presents Aniseed, Essential Oil. This versatile ingredient is used in a variety of applications, including medicine, flavoring & of course cosmetics. With its powerful spicy & sweet aroma the oil it is widely used to flavour or give your formulation a distinct taste hence why you will find it in many toothpastes or alternative oral care products. But do not disregard it when using it in your personal care formulation, it is widely used in soaps, detergents and face masks. This is a relatively pricey oil so our suggestion would be to consider Star Anise as an alternative, you will get the same benefits and profile but at a lower cost. You heard it here.
