Fennel Seed (Whole)

In Greek mythology, the Titan Prometheus is credited with using a stalk of fennel to steal fire from the gods for the benefit of humanity. While the feathery foliage was bestowed with fire-stealing powers, the seed was chewed to tame bad breath, indigestion and flatulence. Fennel seed is also one of the ingredients in the classic infant colic formula known as gripe water.
