What is Fennel used for in Herbal Medicine?

A Answers (2)

  • Infantile colic

    An emulsion of fennel seed oil and an herbal tea containing fennel have reduced infantile colic. Additional studies are warranted in order to confirm these findings.

    You should read product labels, and discuss all therapies with a qualified healthcare provider. Natural Standard information does not constitute medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

    Fennel (known as Xiao Hui Xiang in Chinese) is an herb commonly used in Chinese medicine. In both the East and West fennel is used to help digestive problems such as nausea, bloating or lack of appetite. In addition in Chinese medicine fennel, which is seen as a warming herb, is commonly used to treat pain in the testicles or pain from hernias in the groin area. Interestingly, for this purpose in Chinese medicine, the herb is often first fried with salt before use.
