Back in Biblical times, the Star Anise was considered so valuable that it was used for taxes, as currency and as offerings. It is a highly prized spice that has been in harvest for nearly 2000 years. Also, as an important ingredient in Asian cuisine, the Star Anise delivers an intense, aromatic flavour. It also helps in digestion and treats a cough and influenza. Oil from Star Anise seeds is put to use in animal care against skin irritation and insects. The spice is rich in antioxidants and reduces stress and anxiety. It is also one of the main ingredients in Chinese five-spice powder alongside Cinnamon, Pepper, Fennel and Cloves. It is a very versatile spice, finding its use in different kinds of stews and soups.
