About the essential oils in the Lovers Diffuser Blend licorice
Sweet basil oil
Osimium Basilicum Ct. Linalool
Sweet basil oil smells fresh and green, with that anise scent we want for the dispenser blend.
As its chemical pattern shows, it is rich in the ingredient Linalool. In studies, linalool has been shown to calm the nervous system.
While sweet basil oil is emotionally calming, it is not very relaxing. I love using this oil for people who are constantly multitasking, and stretch themselves. Sweet basil can focus and relax your mind. It’s perfect in the middle of the workday.
Anise essential oil
Anise essential oil has a strong licorice-like smell! Just two drops are enough to add this scent to our blend.
If you ever feel overwhelmed but unable to settle or rest, you’ll love anise oil: it calms your body and mind, while also helping you feel strong enough to take on challenges.
This is largely due to its main ingredient, Trans-Anthol, Which can relax the body’s systems.
Trans-anethole has safety precautions that you should be aware of.
at Essential Oils Safety, Second EditionTisserand and Young recommends avoiding anise essential oil if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or if you have endometriosis, estrogen-related cancer, or a bleeding disorder.
Also, do not use anise if you are taking anticoagulant medications. It is very powerful for sensitive skin and children under the age of five.
Elemi essential oil
Elemi essential oil does not contain the scent of anise.
But its dry, lemon and peppery scent complements the licorice scent beautifully!
We can thank the component D- Limonene For Elemi’s lemon-like notes. D-limonene has also been shown to help convert sad and anxious feelings into more positive and optimistic feelings. It brings emotional security.

Sweet fennel oil
Sweet Fennel adds more licorice scent to our diffuser blend, along with sweet and earthy notes.
It enhances the ability of this distributor mix to dispel shyness, and strengthen inner confidence.
Contains sweet fennel like anise Trans-Anthol. All of the safety concerns I mentioned for anise apply to this oil as well.
If you prefer to avoid anise and sweet fennel,
Simply use more Sweet Basil and Elemi.
I hope you love Licorice Lovers Diffuser Blend as much as I do!
Try distributing it after dinner – anise essential oils can also help support digestion.
