Fennel or Foeniculum vulgare is a culinary herb very often associated with fish and known for its aniseed flavour. It self seeds easily and becomes an attractive tall plant with umbrella type flowers of yellow. It is easy to look after, enjoying sunshine, plenty of water and good drainage. The essence helps people who are dogmatic and only see things in black and white. It enables them to see the colourful shades in between and opens their minds to seeing variety. It also helps them to listen to others views and become open to the fact there is not a fixed right way to do something, but that there may be several ways to do it.
