Directions

The Tincture or Fluid Extract can be taken directly by adding the correct recommended amount to filtered water. However some people find the bitter taste of herbs in this form to be too strong, so the Tincture or Fluid Extract can be added to fruit juice to sweeten.
However in some cases it is preferable to evaporate the alcohol before taking the Tincture or Fluid Extract. This is advised with babies, children, the elderly, and if someone is sensitive to alcohol or recovering from alcohol addiction. This is very easy to do.

Benefits

Digestion
Fennel Seeds help to relax the smooth muscles of the digestive system, which stimulates bile flow and reduces pain associated with digestion. They also exert an anti-spasmodic effect in the colon, making them effective at relieving bloating and excess gas. Fennel Seeds contain the phytochemicals; estragole, fenchone and anethole, which contribute to the plant's antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties.
PMS/Menstrual Cramps
Fennel Seeds have been used by women in the Mediterranean area for many years to alleviate the symptoms of PMS and menstrual cramps. Fennel makes an excellent natural alternative to manage menstrual symptoms.
Menopause
Fennel is also a powerful herb to assist women undergoing changes due to the menopause. Many studies have found it helps to minimise symptoms such as hot flashes, mood swings, vaginal dryness, night sweats and bone loss.

Detox
Fennel is a wonderfully supportive herb to the liver, it contributes to liver enzyme function and helps detoxify and cleanse through this important organ. Drinking Fennel tea regularly helps to flush out excess fluids as it works as a diuretic, thereby helping the removal of toxic substances and reducing the risk of urinary tract problems. It also has diaphoretic properties that stimulate perspiration – the skin is a major organ for the elimination of toxins from the body.

Children’s Health
It is important to note that it is pure Fennel tea that is helpful to children’s health, not herbal supplements. Fennel tea is excellent for children with colic and digestive weakness, enhancing digestion and assimilation of food. It helps in reducing colic symptoms by relaxing the gastrointestinal tract and releasing trapped gas. Gripe water, the commercial remedy for colic actually contains Fennel oil as one of its ingredients. The best way to administer Fennel is by boiling a small quantity in water, filter the water with a cloth and remove all the pieces of Fennel. The earliest age of introduction is about 1 month. A baby with colicky crying can be given Fennel boiled and filtered water. It is advised to give this water in small quantities not more than 150 ml/ dosage.

Apart from relieving colic, Fennel acts as a booster for a baby’s immunity. The presence of both vitamins C and E will gently detoxify whilst providing the immune system with a boost.
