Reports from China indicate processing is done. Total amount of Anise Oil produced substantially lower than last year. This reduced output along with higher labor costs are keeping prices firm.

In January snow and ice damaged trees in the growing area, followed by more damaging storms in February. With limited amounts of leaves and fruit prices are firm.

February 2018




With the autumn crop processing already started one would expect prices to ease.  However, reports indicate that with the higher prices reached several months ago, farmers are staying firm.  The amount of new oil reaching the market is reportedly limited and current offers reflect this.  More oil from “fruits” is available as Natural Anethole offers can be found.  Anise Oil offers are extremely limited at present.

Prices are firm and there are limited offers coming only from dealers.

October 2017




Reports continue to state that upcoming crop will not be able to cover all demand. Bad weather is a primary reason. Prices continue to rise as little carryover exists.

May 2017




The Spring crop just began this month. Oil is not readily available yet and sellers are keeping pricing firm. One dealer advises pricing will not ease until July.

March 2017




We have reports that continue to state that while the autumn crop was small, demand has been stable keeping prices firm.  With the Spring crop starting in April oil should begin to reach the market by late May or early June when it is hoped there will be some relief.

September 2016




We have had several dealers indicate that demand for Anise Oil will escalate.  In light of the Oil’s use in both Western and Traditional Chinese Medicine, the oncoming Fall/Winter cold season and the growing threat of Zika lead us to believe that this is the case.  We have seen prices begin to firm and expect this to be the trend for a few months.

August 2016




With the Spring Crop over and very little carryover, prices are beginning to firm.   The market is expected to stay firm until the new crop is available in late October and early November.

June 2016




Reports continue to state that demand is off, keeping prices low.  This has discouraged farmers from collecting.  While the harvest usually ends in June, prices are not expected to ease any further.

April 2016




Recent reports indicate that Oil from the Autumn crop has been consumed and that any spike in demand will cause prices to increase.  As we won’t see new Oil until sometime in June, a price rise is expected.

March 2016




Reports indicate that carryover from the Autumn crop are dwindling.  We expect prices to firm until new material becomes available after April.

February 2016




Reports indicate that low prices and high labor costs have discouraged farmers from harvesting Anise.  As carryover stocks are consumed in the runup to the May/June crop we expect to see prices firm.  


staraniseoilnaturalanethole

January 2016




The most recent reports we’ve received indicate that production of Anise oil is limited as low prices have discouraged farmers from distilling.  With carryover nearing completion, we would expect prices to rise.

December 2015




Reports from October of off demand and softening prices for both ingredients conflict with previous reports of low volumes and higher costs for producers.  The Spice Market reports that prices for Anise seeds are rising, suggesting a diminished crop and the prospect of rising prices for both Oil and Natural Anethole.

November 2015




Current pricing for Oil is unappealing for farmers, who will be holding on to stocks from the Spring Crop and reducing their production for the fall.  Reports indicate that demand is off which may suggest slackened demand from the pharmaceutical industry.  Despite the difficulties with the Anise market, pricing for Natural Anethole remains stable for now.
