Sea Fennel Plant

The Sea Fennel plant, also known as Rock Samphire or Rock Fennel, has a history of medicinal use as far back as Ancient Greece. So it’s no surprise that our Sea Fennel is sourced from Greece! As a coastal plant, some find Sea Fennel carries the briny scent of the sea while others smell the aroma as a fresh, lemony carrot. No matter what you smell, it has some incredible benefits that you won’t want to miss out on.


Glowing Skin

If there’s one thing above all else that Sea Fennel excels at, it’s skincare. It has incredible skin-renewing and regenerative properties. It helps smooth, brighten and improve the overall appearance and tone of your skin. So whether you have aging skin or are looking to smooth out the appearance of dimples and ripples,  this oil can help. For an anti-aging serum, blend 2 drops with 2 drops of Frankincense Frereana, and 2 drops of Orange Blood in 1 ounce of your favorite facial serum or moisturizer.


Better Digestion

Every once in a while, or maybe more often than that, digestion issues come around. So next time you’re feeling some stomach trouble, whether it’s gas, bloating or just your average stomach ache, try applying Sea Fennel topically to your abdomen. Dilute it in your favorite carrier oil and massage in a clockwise motion.


So Long Congestion

It’s getting close to that time of year again. The time where seasonal bugs get passed around at school, at work and somehow, they make their way to your home. If you’re unlucky enough to end up with congestion due to sickness or allergies, try adding a few drops to your diffuser to help ease the symptoms and get you breathing clear again.


That’s Not All

Woman sick on the couch.

In addition to helping ease congestion, it’s also a great oil to have on hand during times of seasonal illness as it helps boost your immune system!

  • Thank you for this article. Am definitely going to try the combo of sea fennel, blood orange and frankincense frereana ! Can’t wait!

  • I have a question. Does anyone know if I can add this to the olive oil lotion instead of oil? And will it work as well?

    1. You can absolutely use Olive Lotion instead and you’ll still get the benefits from Sea Fennel. Which carrier oil or lotion you end up using depends on your personal skin care needs.

  • So excited to try all the ways sea fennel can help! I thought it was mainly for skincare, but am glad to see so many other purposes!

  • I’ve had this oil forever and never new how to use it! Thanks so much for the info. I’m always congested during the fall and winter and I look forward to using it for this purpose

  • This is great! I already have this oil but have not used it yet. I will add it to my skin care regimen! Hopefully, it smells better than Carrot Seed! My daughter also have issues with congestion all the time, I try this one out in her diffuser!

  • Sounds like I should get this one for my skin!! I like how it’s good for digestion too. Can’t hurt to add another great oil to the collection!

  • Love this oil – I have so many oils for my “mature” skin, and this is one I use often. Suggestion – it’s not listed under your shop by condition under aging skin – you should add it there too. 🙂 Thanks PT!

  • This blog post was very informative! I received Sea Fennel as an oil of the month and haven’t used it yet. This is a timely reminder that it’s in my arsenal because it’s time to make a new skin serum. I will definitely be adding this! And when school starts I will add sea fennel to my immune boosting diffuser blends. Thanks Plant Therapy!

    1. I already have sea fennel. I didn’t realize it was good to ease congestion. I’ll have to try that today, as I am getting over a horrible cold
