Fennel herbal tea

The fennel is a wild herb frequently used in phytotherapeutic practices, thanks to the various beneficial actions it is able to exercise. It belongs to the Apiaceae (Ombrellifere) family, typical of the Mediterranean area, and contains, in addition to mineral salts and vitamins, an essence called volatile oil which is mainly made up of anethole, which is particularly concentrated in seeds.
It is precisely the anethole that gives fennel its therapeutic properties against difficult digestion.
Fennel is also an ingredient used worldwide for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and is considered one of the most suitable natural solutions to solve some physical problems.


The fennel tea is known as one of the best natural remedies to overcome abdominal bloating and all the disorders that affect the digestive system, such as, for example, gastric dyspepsia or slow digestion, swelling or flatulence disorders, thanks to its properties carminative.
To its draining and deflating properties, however, there are also two other healing properties: the antimeteorphic property and that concerning the intestine musculature.
In the first case, the fennel tea is able to inhibit the fermentative processes that take place in the intestine, performing an antispastic action on the colon muscles. It serves, therefore, to relax the walls of the colon, thanks to the essential oil present in the plant, allowing a better digestion and, attenuating possible heartburn and, reducing all those annoyances caused by the irritable bowel syndrome.
The fennel tea is also a valid aid for women, whether they are pregnant or not.

As fennel is a producer of estrogen hormones, the fennel herbal tea, drunk three times a day, is also very useful for menopausal women.
In addition to all the properties already listed, it should not be forgotten that the fennel tea can be helpful in treating conjunctivitis. It is enough, in fact, once the herbal tea has been prepared, let it cool and use it to make compresses on the sick eye.
The absence of contraindications, always taken in moderate doses, makes the fennel herbal tea widely used also to treat gaseous colics of children, obviously respecting the dosage preset by the pediatrician.


The preparation of the fennel tea depends on the use you want to make.
Although bringing a cup of water to the boil putting inside a spoonful of fennel seeds, and letting them rest in infusion for about 10 minutes, is sufficient to combat abdominal bloating, gaseous colic of infants and conjunctivitis, it is possible add other plants to fennel seeds, in order to make the herbal tea more tasty and with more active ingredients.
In fact, if you want to prepare a digestive, purifying, carminative herbal tea against abdominal cramps, you can add fennel seeds, a tablespoon of linden, two rosemary leaves, a tablespoon of centaura and one of peppermint .
The herbal tea can be sweetened, preferably with honey or cane sugar.
Another herbal tea useful against meteorism and colitis can be obtained by adding to the fennel seeds, two tablespoons of anise, a tablespoon of coriander, a teaspoon of licorice root, 4 or 5 cloves. In this case, all the ingredients must be left to macerate for 20 minutes before being put in a saucepan to boil for 2 minutes.

Fennel also contains estragole, a substance considered carcinogenic and toxic, banned, at European level, as a flavoring in processed foods. For this reason, the medical opinion towards the fennel tea is divided into two parts: some doctors advise against the regular use of fennel infusions in the most vulnerable sections of the population: newborns, children and pregnant or nursing women; other physicians, while not denying the presence of estragole in fennel, consider other anti-carcinogenic principles present in the plant, so the mixture between the latter and estragolum, make fennel a non-harmful plant.
