Fennel Oil for Courage and Mental Strength

As a digestive health promoting herb, it is in good company with other beneficial herbs like dill and coriander. The seed is most commonly used in culinary preparations, though the fennel essential oil uses can come from the seed or the aerial (above ground) parts of the plant.
