Aniseed Tincture - Pimpinella anisum
The volatile oil in Aniseed provides the basis for its internal use to ease griping, intestinal colic and fatulence. It also has an expectorant and anti-spasmodic action and maybe used in bronchitis, in tracheitis where there is persistent irritable coughing, and in whooping cough.
Externally, the oil maybe used in an ointment base for the treatment of scabies. The oil by itself will help in the control of lice.
Aniseed has been demonstrated to increase mucociliary transport and so supporting its use as an expectorant. It has mild estrogenic effects, thought to be due to the presence of dianethole and photoanethole, which explains the use of this plant in folk medicine to increase milk secretion, facilitate birth and increase libido.
