Aniseed Essential Oil CAS 8007-70-3

Anise Oil, also called Anise Seed Oil or Aniseed Oil, is a water-white or very pale yellow liquid of intensely sweet and clean odor, truly reminiscent of the crushed fruit. A very common description is that of “licorice odor”. Obviously, this is another example of circle-minded association (like the “chocolate odor of vanilla or vanillin). Anise Oil and its derivatives are used as flavoring ingredients in licorice candy, but the licorice extract itself (i.e. the extract of the rhizome) does not have any odor resemblance to anise.
