ORIGIN

The scientific name of the fennel seed is Foeniculum Vulgare and it belongs to the Apiaceae family. Also known as ‘bulbous fennel’, it was widely used for its properties and benefits as far back as ancient times. In the Middle Ages, the fennel seed was the Italians’ favourite herb. In the 17th century, its use spread to northern Europe, especially Belgium and the north of France.

Nowadays, fennel is grown and found in the wild all over the world, although it originates from the Mediterranean Basin.
