My favorite herb / spice today....
Have you ever heard of Star Anise? Probably not. I didn't until I started researching herbs for healing and practical use. It is technically a spice. It smells exactly like black licorice. If you crush it and just leave it out like potpourri its scent fills the room. It is powerful stuff. It is used in some Asian and Indian dishes but I bought it from the grocery store purely for its smell. It is a little expensive but it is my favorite today.
