RESEARCH: Fennel essential oil

This study examined the composition and antimicrobial activity of Fennel essential oil. The study found that Fennel EO showed inhibition against Bacillus cereus, Bacillus magaterium, Bacillus pumilus, Bacillus substilis, Eschericha coli, Klebsiella pneumonia, Micrococcus lutus, Pseudomonos pupida, Pseudomonos syringae, and Candida albicans!

This study also notes that "It was reported by Nenad et al. (2007) that the main advantage of natural agents is that they do not enhance the antibiotic resistance, a phenomenon commonly encountered with the long-term use of synthetic antibiotics."

The bottom line? The researchers concluded that Fennel essential oil is valuable not only for increasing shelf life of foodstuffs but it could be a future target for replacing synthetic antibacterial agents.
