Keep your medicine chest stocked with this amazing herb - fennel can cover a lot of bases. Fennel has long been used to soothe tummies, relieve menstrual pain and help with coughs that develop from colds. It has a wonderfully calming effect on the body whether it’s to relieve flatulence, take away pain or calm a cough. Don’t be at home without it!
Each ml contains 200 mg of organically grown sweet fennel seeds (Foeniculum vulgare). It is a 1:5 seed extract in a non-medicinal base of 40% gluten-free grain alcohol and purified water.
Fennel helps to relieve digestive upset and coughs due to colds.
For best results, take fennel on an empty stomach, which means about 15 minutes before a meal or snack, or at least 1 hour after.
Adults 13 and over: take 2 ml, 3 times per day.
For best absorption, squirt the tincture under your tongue and hold it there for a few seconds, then swallow. If you want to remove the alcohol, add the dosage to a half cup of freshly boiled water. The alcohol will evaporate off. Let it cool, and add honey or a splash of juice to make a yummy, digestion-soothing drink!
Caution: Do not use if you are allergic to anethole or plants of the carrot family. If you find that you are developing any sort of hypersensitivity then stop using fennel right away. Please talk to your healthcare practitioner before using fennel if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Consult a healthcare practitioner for use beyond 2 weeks and always talk to your healthcare practitioner if your symptoms hang on or get worse!
