Anise (lat.: Pimpinella asinum L.) comes originally from the Balkans from the Eastern Mediterranean. The cultivation it today in all the world in moderate climate zones. Main cultivation zones of today is South of Russia. In the Middle Ages anise was also cultivated in Central Europe [which is only possible with warm climate changes] [web04].

Anise field  anise umbel 
Anise field [1] - anise umbel [2]

Anise is also called "aniseed" [web17].

The plant has a strong aroma [web04]. The smell of anise is sweet, floury and mild. Anise smell is provoked by etheric anise oil in the anise seeds and children like it very much. In certain bakeries and sweet bakeries anise oil is a constant part [web01].

The anise plant

Anise needs bright and sunny locations, needs rich soils and always some humidity during the growing period. The anise plant is for one year, it's a forb, becomes 10 to 60cm of height with a thin taproot [web04]. The seeds are sawn at a distance of at least 20cm. The fields must be used in a period of 3 years, that means only once every 3 years in the same field [web10].

The stem is highly branched, slightly hairy. The foliage leaves are 2 to 5cm long with small stalks, the leaves are 1 to 3cm long, heart-shaped rounded on the edge sawn, the stalk leaves are one-to-two pinnately, the edges of the feather blades are sawn. The uppermost stems are reduced and are only three-lobed [web04].

Anise plants, the leaves are a
Anise plants, the leaves are a chaos [3]

The white flowers on the umbels have five petals [web04].

The anise seeds

Anise seeds [4] - anise seeds 02 [9]

The umbels mature unevenly one after the other, and even within a dome, the seeds ripen unequally [web10]. The anise seeds are two-part, brownish-long with yellow strips (ribs) [web04]. The harvest in the late summer is therefore done by hand several times. Those who pick the whole umbels always have immature seeds under them [web04]. The seeds are gently dried and stored in dark, opaque vessels. Over time, oils are sticking to the walls - as a sign that a great deal of oils are present [web10].

Ingredients of anise and anise seeds

-- Components of the essential oil of anise: Anethol [a. Fennel], isoanethol, ansiketone, anissic acid, acetaldehyde, acetylcholine, azulene, bergapten, boron, camphor, carvon, chamazulen, eugenol [web01]; and there are: fatty oil, phenolic carboxylic acids, flavonoids [web02]
-- furthermore there are: coffee acid, cumarine, myristicine, salicylate, thymol, umbelliferone, xanthotoxine, vitamin C [web01].

or so:

Essential oils (Chamazulen), ingredients of essential oils (Anethol [a. Fennel], carvone, isoanethol, myristicine, salicylate, thymol, xanthotoxine) [web09]

Other ingredients are: anise acid, acetaldehyde, acetylcholine, azulene, boron, cumarine (... [German: bergapten], umbelliferone), protein, eugenol, flavonoids, camphor, coffee acid, vitamin C, sugar [web09]

Anethol makes up 90% [web04] or even up to 95% of the essential oils that make up the sweet aniseed flavor and aniseed odor [web02].

Make an anise tea

Crushing the anise seeds - hot water - let it go

The anise seeds are crushed in a mortar [web01] or cut [web03] so that the active substances can escape better [the seeds then smell stronger] [web01]. The essential oils store in the seeds in excretory passages ("oil strains"). The mortar bites the excrements, the oils are released and so the seeds smell more intense. The seeds are less durable, however, because the oils are volatile [web04].

With the aniseeds, prepare an anise tea [web01] with boiling water, let it go for 10 to 15 minutes, drink 3 cups daily [web03].

"For anise tea, brew 1 teaspoon of anise with 1 cup of boiling water and let the mixture draw for 10 minutes." [web04]

Anise tea should not be used for more than 2 weeks [web03]. [You take a tea for 2 weeks, then make a week break and then follow again 2 weeks with the tea].

Gargling anise tea promotes oral hygiene: "Since the anise has an antibacterial and antimicrobial effect, it is possible to do something against infections in the mouth or against mouth odor by gurgling an anise." [Web10]

-- pure aniseed oil can cause skin irritation, always dilute it [web10]
-- always take aniseed oil diluted [web09]
