Fennel Essential Oil is a best known for its digestive support but it’s also helpful for women who have menstrual difficulties. It can also ease tension and is good in tension blends. People either love or hate it’s distinctive scent. Quite honestly, I’m in the latter crowd. For me to use fennel essential oil, it’s got to be just a drop in a blend of oils that I enjoy far more. None-the-less, it’s one of my “go to” oils for pretty much anything to do with my abdomen.
With our pre-diluted oils . . . if diluted for kids is the highest dilution you see, it’s also the max dilution possible. Pre-diluted oils are in jojoba.

Fennel (Sweet) Essential Oil Safety Info
Tisserand and Young note that fennel essential oil can interfere with reproductive hormone modulation, is potentially carcinogenic (based on estragole content), may inhibit blood clotting, and can cause skin sensitization if oxidized. Do not use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have endometriosis, have estrogen-dependent cancers, or in children under five years of age. Do not take internally if you are taking diabetes medication, taking anticoagulant medication (blood thinners), having major surgery, have a peptic ulcer, or have hemophilia or other bleeding disorders. Maximum recommended dermal limit is 2.5%. Fennel (Sweet) essential oil should still follow the safety guidelines below. ~ Source: Tisserand, Robert and Young, Rodney.

While we’ve made this clear that we are selling this essential oil to use in your diffuser, your inhaler, or topically (diluted), it is a pure essential oil and can be used as such. With all essential oils:
Never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes (this includes mouth, ear canals, noses, genital regions as well as internal areas). The strength of essential oils can easily damage these soft tissue areas.
Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner.
Keep away from children.
If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).
Oral Safety is only given because many people have been told to take oils internally. Because several people look to us for safety advice, we feel obligated to offer those safety statements, although we do not believe anyone should be ingesting essential oils without being guided by an expert. Experts will take your medical history into account before they suggest oils for you to ingest, diffuse, or use topically.
