The dried seeds of the fennel plant (Foeniculum vulgare), native to southern Europe, were used against mistiness of the eye and to drive worms out of the ears; can be used to help support excess flesh and fat; to help support pains in the chest; to help increase the milk supply of nursing mothers and as a general cleaning agent for the milt, liver, gall, kidneys and bladder. A solution of oil of fennel can be tried as an enema for hemorrhoids.
Fennel used to be given cooked in broth as a slimming supportive. It was also regarded as a tonic and stomachic. The root is the best of the five great aperitive roots; its juice, taken on an empty stomach, is febrifuge, sudorific and carminative. The leaves, in a decoction, are said to strengthen the sight. The seed is one of the four major hot seeds. It facilitates digestion and gives a pleasant taste in the mouth when chewed; it is a specific supportive for putrid fevers. It can be used to help support windy colic. An essential oil is obtained from the seed, pale yellow in color, very sweet, lighter than water and liable to freeze in the cold, with a very aromatic odor. Mixed with sugar, this oil helps digestion, helps support asthma and windy colic.
