What Fennel herb Is:

This tall, wispy perennial is a staple of both chefs and herbal physicians. Its stems, which have a sweet anise or licorice taste, can be eaten much like celery; its seeds (which are actually one-seeded fruits) spice up recipes for fish and other dishes and contain the most medicinal action. The plants clusters of tiny yellow flowers resemble upturned umbrellas. Indigenous to the Mediterranean, this member of the parsley family now grows all over the world. A few eastern European countries, Egypt, and China are the major cultivators.

While the root is eaten as a vegetable, it is the seeds which are used medicinally.

Fennel has antiinflammatory and diuretic effects. It also acts as a digestive aid and increases milk flow in breastfeeding women.
