Fennel is an amazing herb with an abundance of applications. It is a carminative for the digestive system, can help to promote breastmilk for lactating mothers, and can be used topically for hirsutism (male pattern hair growth in women). In this situation I have included a recipe below for eating fennel seeds after a meal to aid digestion.
- 1/4 cup of Fennel seeds
- 2 Tbsp honey
- 1 tsp of coconut oil
Heat oil in a skillet. Add seeds and honey (or maple syrup).
Toast until seeds are coating and sugar is slightly browned.
Pour out onto wax paper or plate and cool.
Eat a few seeds after a meal.
