Finest Origin - Highest Grade

The tree-like shrubs of the star anise thrive at 500-800m altitude according to controlled organic criteria in the tropical Asian region of Vietnam. This hot and humid climate offers the plants their perfect growing conditions. They can thus produce their special ingredients, such as trans-anethole and methylchavicol. The ripe fruits are harvested and sorted by hand with experience in March and October. The aromatic essential oil is then extracted in our own distillery with steam in compliance with quality standards.


We source this essential oil from a renowned and certified producer located in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, France. The company was founded in the early 20th century and has cooperation partners worldwide, small to large farms, where the plants' origin and quality are well monitored. The essential oils are extracted on site either by gentle steam distillation in a stainless steel tank or by cold pressing. The first certified organic products date back to 2001.

Star anise

Star anise originates from southern China and Vietnam and belongs to the star anise family (Illiciaceae). This evergreen shrub can also grow as a tree up to 15m high. Its bark is white colored, the leaves are green leathery glossy. It produces white to reddish large flowers from spring to summer, which after fertilization form the eight-pointed star-shaped fruits.


The honey-sweet anise notes soothing body and mind, which contributes to strengthening and balance
