OBTC Tea Found In: Leche de Mama

Fennel was used by the ancient Egyptians as a food and medicine, and was believed to be an effective antidote for snake bite and poisonous mushrooms in ancient China. During the Middle Ages, it was hung over doorways to drive away evil spirits.

During the 1300s, fennel seed was used as an appetite suppression. It is traditionally used in drugs to treat chills and stomach problems. The Latin word "foeniculum," or "little hay," is said to describe fennel's feathery leaves, but may also describe a traditional use of feeding it to the goats to increase the quantity and fat content of their milk.
