Essential oil of fennel

Foeniculum vulgare

Fennel is known for being antiseptic, toning, weight-reducing, diuretic, and anti-bacterial. It contains potassium and sodium. Fennel has been used to scent soaps and perfumes for centuries. It is a stimulant and great in a cleanser or astringent. I find it is one of the best essential oils to inhale during menstrual cramping. It is also reputedly beneficial in building confidence and dependability. (See fennel herb.)
