So….. I am in Cabo San Lucas….. I have an upset stomach and a Mexican woman that works in spa where we are staying, suggests easing my gastrointestinal issues by chewing on “Anise” seeds. Anise’s volatile oils spur the release of digestive enzymes and calm intestinal spasms. 20 minutes later all of my stomach issues….. gone!

On New Year’s Day…. have 1/2 teaspoon of these magical seeds sitting on the night stand ready to chew…. to help ease into 2012….. from 2011’s crazy night!
