This star-shaped spice is highly desired due to its active chemical compounds, particularly those found in star anise oil. This herb also contains a compound called shikimic acid, an essential part of anti-influenza medications worldwide. The most interesting thing is that extracting and processing this acid takes almost a year. The global demand for influenza medications largely determines the cost of this herb.
