Product Description

Anise seed oil can be used in small amounts to create the same wonderful licorice flavor you know. You can use it to make cookies, biscotti, cakes and more. It brings that distinctive taste to ethnic confectioneries such as New Zealand aniseed wheels, Austrian humbugs, British aniseed balls, Italian pizzelle, and Peruvian picaroons.
Anise Oil can be added to sassafras in making root beer, or to boiling water when making Anise tea. When substituting Anise Oil for anise powder, be sure to cut the amount by 1/4th.
Anise Oil has a uniquely high freezing temperature of only 50 degrees. When shipping in cold temperatures it's not uncommon for the oil to arrive solidified. Simply place the container in warm water to re-liquefy the oil. Anise Oil is also used in aroma therapy to sooth cold symptoms. Be aware that if the concentrated oil comes in contact with some plastics it may warp them, so the use of glass, metal and wood are best suited for working with this oil. 


5 - 6 drops of this pure anise oil is equal to 1 tsp of anise extract. Highly concentrated flavoring, keep out reach of children. Not water soluble. Do not apply oil directly to skin.


Natural Anise Oil.

  4. The only anise oil for pizzelle you'll ever need

    Posted by Sharon on 5th Sep 2017

    The other anise oils made from star anise are NOT what you want! This has the full licorice aroma that every Italian remembers from the cookies of his or her childhood. Thank you American Spice Company for this blast from the past! Whatever you do, don't change your recipe!

  5. Anise Oil

    Posted by Karen on 15th Dec 2016

    I used to find anise oil at the pharmacy... it was used as flavoring in elixirs they'd mix up. But that's not how they do it anymore and edible anise oil disappeared. Only place I could find it was the homeopathic sites and they packaged it in plastic bottles. Not a good combination, plastic and anise oil. The oil starts decomposing the plastic and the flavor changes. Also, I wasn't sure I was getting a food grade product.
    Imagine my joy finding anise oil at American Spice! I'm set to mix, roll, cut and bake my family's anicient cookie recipe. Thank you!

  9. Top Notch

    Posted by Rocco on 11th Dec 2012

    I cannot find anyone better then American Spice for having available "Top Notch" products. I always purchase Anise oil from them because of the quality of the product. Plus no one else offers the 8 oz bottles.
