Wild fennel, also called sweet fennel, is a herbaceous, spontaneous, perennial herb of the Apiaceae family (Ombrellifere).
It has origins in the Mediterranean area and it has been known since ancient times for its aromatic and therapeutic properties: essential fennel oil can be used in the treatment of disorders associated with the digestive system, improving digestion. It can also help restore a Optimal intestinal flora.
Essential oil is able to stimulate food intake and improve digestion by increasing bile secretion (anti-dyspeptic properties).
The pure 100% pure essential oil is extracted from Masseria del Fano for steam distillation from yellow-flowered umbrellas and fruits, harvested in August and then in the balsamic period.
Harvesting takes place in the 40 hectares of untouched properties, from the caving of spontaneous plants harvested by hand.
