I got this scent to use with peppermint for a warm Christmas candy-type scent. I also love the idea of using it on its own for a hunter soap.
This scent is very strong, so a little goes a long way. Has a strong licorice smell, not sure if I will repurchase this oil.
I wasn't sure about this when I ordered it but it is really a great scent. I think I'll use it often in the fall & winter for lotions & scrubs. Another great find!
Not only is anise a great fall fragrance but it is popular with my customers this time of year due to it's use as a human scent cover for hunters. Also great for spicy harvest season blends, but right now most of my customers are buying this because there are so many hunters in the north country.
