Professional product manufacturers are using this herb to round out their formulas as well, and some that feature fennel include Dermaxime’s Cellumend Anti-Celluite Cream, which helps remove cellulite and the orange-peel effect. Moor Spa’s Booster Cleanser Mask’s fennel ingredient helps to deep cleanse the skin, and Pedicure by OPI’s Massage is a moisturizing foot lotion with fennel. Additionally, En Vogue’s Lemon Fennel Spa Products are soothing and rejuvenating for manicures and pedicures, Arbré Skin Technology offers Marine Plant Gel with sweet fennel to hydrate and decrease stress for the body, and Imee Beauty offers pure essential fennel oil for its balancing, cleansing and detoxifying benefits.

Ancient times

Hey, if it’s good enough for Bobby Flay, it’s good enough for me—and let’s be honest, fennel was treasured long before the Food Network was created. In fact, it has been revered by many cultures since ancient times, and by adding it to your spa’s treatment and cuisine menus, you can ensure it is treasured by your spa’s clients, as well.
