This anise seed toner is good both as a prevention and a cure for sagging skin and wrinkles. Anise seeds have more concentrated properties than star anise for wrinkles as a whole spice, so you need to use just a few of them to see results.

The other key ingredient we use in this anise seed toner is rose water. You will see that we use rose water a lot in our home made natural remedies on The Indian Rose. The reason why we like rose water so much is that it is beneficial for all skin types, it cleanses, it rejuvenates, and it smells fantastic. If you want to use something that’s more specific for wrinkles, you can try adding rice water for wrinkles to this recipe. Remember, it is good to mix and match with natural ingredients!

Let’s now come to the anise seed toner:



  • 1/2 cup anise seeds
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup rose water



  • Bring the cup of water to a boil
  • Boil the anise seeds for 15 minutes
