Cautions:

Star Anise oil is estrogenic and therefore should not be used in pregnancy, breastfeeding, endometriosis, estrogen-sensitive cancers, and children under 5 years of age. We recommend a maximum dilution of 1.75%.

Instantly recognizable by its warm, sweet licorice scent, Star Anise essential oil is believed to be helpful during a woman’s normal transition to menopause. It helps ease the sudden heat and sweating which often is present during this trying time in women’s lives. This oil is also helpful in relieving the feeling of having over-indulged at the dinner table. Star Anise can help smooth out the discomfort and fullness of a “tight tummy.”
For a nice pick-me-up, diffuse 3 drops of Star Anise, 2 drops of Lemon and 1 drop of Peppermint. This same blend of oils in two teaspoons of carrier oil applied to the abdomen is also helpful with calming occasional digestive upset or a queasy stomach.
The International Federation of Aromatherapists does not recommend that Essential Oils be taken internally unless under the supervision of a Medical Doctor who is also qualified in clinical Aromatherapy. All cautions listed for individual oils do not include those cautions from ingestion.

2.0 5  not my type

star anise remind me of a noddle course and I cannot stop thinking about the food when star anise is being diffused, cannot sleep if it is on :)). the smell is warm and strong, but not my type. I tried to used it in cooking once (did a really shallow research and couple pages said it's edible so I just went for it). The smell is amazing but really really strong (I stupidly added 7 drops, with a big pot, ended up too strong smell). I refer have star anise in blend with peppermint and lemon (the one recommended in the description) and wish I can find more blend description for star anise.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
