Fennel essential oil

Fennel essential oil

(Foeniculum vulgare)

topical aromatic

Fennel essential oil is for use aromatically and topically while Fennel Vitality essential oil is dietary and therefore can be ingested.  Both bottles contain the same essential oil and differ only in the way they are labeled.  The designation of the two products allows you to share all the ways to use essential oils in the correct and FDA approved way.

Fennel essential oil is steam distilled from the crushed seeds of the fennel plant. The leafy herb is native to regions of southern Europe and Asia Minor, but it has since naturalized in locations around the world. Fennel has a rich aroma reminiscent of anise, which gives Fennel oil its licorice-like scent. Although the seeds and oil are used in flavoring, fennel’s complex aroma has also made it popular in soaps, candles, and perfumes.

Fennel is a tall, beautiful perennial herb with feather-like leaves that look a lot like dill. Dig below the stalk and you’ll find a large white bulb at the root. Although it looks like garlic or something from the onion tribe, fennel is actually related more closely to carrots. You can see the family resemblance in their crispy texture and sweetness. The bulb, stalk, and leaves are all edible, but the most potent flavor comes from the seeds.

Young Living grinds the seeds into a powder and steam distills that powder.


There are many Fennel essential oil uses, but the oil is popularly used for aromatic applications. Its sweet, spicy aroma has a long history of encouraging grounding feelings, making it an important part of Young Living’s Dragon Time™ Massage Oil and Prenolone® Plus Body Cream.

How to use: For aromatic or topical use.  Diffuse, inhale, or add to bath water.  Apply to crown of head, back of neck, behind ears or inside wrists.  Possible skin sensitivity.

  1. Diffuse at work or while studying to create a grounded environment.
  2. Reduce the appearance of pores by applying a neutral facial toner and 1–2 drops Fennel on freshly washed skin.
  3. Use Fennel’s cleansing benefits by adding a few drops to a gentle facial cleanser.
  4. Put a few drops in your palm and inhale directly to promote feelings of balance, calm, and grounding.
  5. In ancient Rome, warriors were said to consume fennel prepare them for battle and make them strong.  To give you courage and confidence of a Roman soldier, put a few drops in your palm, cup your hands to your nose, and inhale!
