What is Sweet Fennel Essential Oil:  Fennel is an evergreen perennial native to the Mediterranean and is now typically grown in herb and vegetable gardens. Known for its licorice flavor and aroma, fennel produces flowers, fragrant leaves, and most importantly, fennel seeds—from which essential oil is extracted.
