Description of Plant:
A tall rainforest tree, with dense glabrous foliage characterized by its 'aniseed' odor. The timber of this species has distinct dark concentric rings in transverse section (hence the common name of Ringwood). Cream flowers are eucalyptic like and born in late spring to early summer.

Parts Used: Aerial parts.

Major Chemical Constituents:
The essential oil of B. anisata is predominately (E)-anethole (trans-anethole) and methyl chavicol with minor amounts of alpha-pinene, cineole, (Z)-anethole, alpha farnesene and anisaldehyde.

Aroma:
High in anethole, which is what gives this lovely oil a sweet as candy licorice flavor and aroma.
