Anise Star Whole Select (illicium verum)
Our Star Anise of good quality is $10.29 a pound. This is different from our regular Star Anise. A very nice product for the price This is a favorite herb around here. The scent is intoxicating. Star Anise is used to make the drug Tamiflu, so that tells us it has some type of antiviral property. Star anise is also used in crafting projects, potpourri and to decorate foods. It is also an ingredient in Chinese Five Spice blend.
