The Anise herb and seeds, known as Aniseed, have many benefits. Anise has been known to aid in an upset stomach and cough. Used by Native Americans to freshen breath, chewing leaves and stems after a meal. Used also in soaps, perfumes, and sachets because of its aromatic properties. Growing anise from seed does best in regions where the soil is approximately 70 degrees; container herb gardening is suitable for aniseed.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/www.trueleafmarket.com\/pages\/the-herb-growing-guide-from-true-leaf-market\" target=\"_blank\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eDownload Free Herb Growing Guide PDF\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/www.trueleafmarket.com\/pages\/grow-anise\" target=\"_blank\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cu\u003eFull Anise Herb Growing Guide Instructions\u003c\/u\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c!--split--\u003e\n\u003ch2\u003eAnise Garden Planting Seeds\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/www.trueleafmarket.com\/pages\/grow-anise\" target=\"_blank\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cu\u003eFull Anise Herb Growing Guide Instructions\u003c\/u\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c!--attr--\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eAnise Latin Name:\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cem\u003ePimpinella anisum\u003c\/em\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eDays to Maturity:\u003c\/strong\u003e 75+ (leaves), 120+ (seeds)\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eHardiness Zone:\u003c\/strong\u003e Perennial in zones 4-11\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eSeed Planting Depth:\u003c\/strong\u003e1\/2\"\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003ePlant Spacing:\u003c\/strong\u003e 8-12”\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eHerb Growth Habit:\u003c\/strong\u003e Upright\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eSoil Preference:\u003c\/strong\u003e Well-drained soil\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eTemperature Preference:\u003c\/strong\u003e Warm, 70° F\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eLight Preference:\u003c\/strong\u003e Full sun\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003ePests\/diseases:\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cspan data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eaphids, slugs, wormwood pug larvae\u003c\/span\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eAnise Herb Color:\u003c\/strong\u003e Green\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eAnise leaf\/seed Flavor:\u003c\/strong\u003e Strong licorice-like flavor\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c!--endattr--\u003e\n\n \u003cbr\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eAnise Herb Growing Habits\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eOpen-pollinated Anise herb plants \u003ci\u003e(Pimpinella anisum) \u003c\/i\u003ewill reach heights of 18-24 inches and display large primary leaves and feathery secondary leaves, which turn into clusters of tiny, yellow-white flowers called umbels in midsummer, followed by ribbed teardrop-shaped fruits called Aniseed for which this is herb is especially famous.

The Various Uses for the Anise Herb and Seed

Anise herb garden seeds are the most widely used part of the plant. Though the heirloom anise leaves, too, are tasty and can be snipped off and added to salads or sprinkled over finely chopped vegetables. Dry anise leaves after harvest and use in teas. Whole or crushed the Anise seed kernels can be added to bread, cakes, cookies, applesauce, soups, or even beverages.

The Benefits of the Anise Herb and Seed

Anise seeds are rich in nutrients, including iron, manganese, fiber, potassium. The anise herb has been used as a medicinal herb for centuries for a variety of reasons. Historically, both anise leaves and aniseed have been used to relieve an upset stomach, intestinal gas, and a runny nose. Pimpinella anisum leaves brewed into a tea for a cold symptom remedy, such as an expectorant to increase the progression of cough, as a diuretic to increase urine flow, and as an aid to increase appetite stimulant.

It is suggested that anethole, the active organic compound that gives aniseed and the anise plant its unique flavor, helps to reduce inflammation and to balance blood sugar levels.
