Do garlic and fennel work well together?

So I know that some herbs do not do well combined- just because two herbs have great antiviral properties, for example, doesn't mean they would work better together. I'm eating raw garlic for some sinus issues, usually with cayenne. I decided to add some ground up fennel seed. I really like the flavor combination, I read that fennel is decongestant, and I thought it might help me with the indigestion garlic tends to give me. However, does anyone know if they would counteract each other in any way? I'd especially love to hear from @torey.
