Fennel tea is known for its antispasmodic and anti-cramping properties. In addition, it stimulates the appetite, promotes good digestion and is an excellent remedy for gas. It can also boost the metabolism and aid the flushing of toxins from the body.

Fennel is native to the Mediterranean region, where it grows wild in the fields and on hillsides. Fennel is perhaps one of the oldest plants to be used in herbal medicine.
