Caraway Essential Oil is steam distilled from the seeds of the Caraway spice, also known as Meridian Fennel, Persian Cumin, Meadow Cumin, and Shahi Jeera. It is thin in consistency and either colorless or pale yellow in appearance. Caraway Essential Oil exudes a strong, sweet, and spicy aroma with a hot, peppery nuance that is known to stimulate the appetite and enhance digestion. Its scent is also described as being fruitier and more pungent than that of Cumin.
With exceptional expectorant properties, Caraway Essential Oil is reputed to help loosen mucus and to reduce respiratory inflammation associated with colds and coughs, thereby reducing congestion. It is also believed to be ideal for addressing anemia, acidity, bloating, colds, coughs, colic, diabetes, dyspepsia, fatigue, flatulence, delayed menstruation, diarrhea, headaches, hormonal imbalances, impotence, inflammation, memory loss, morning sickness, obesity, rheumatism, and vomiting. Furthermore, it is said to stimulate all of the body’s systems – including digestive, circulatory, excretory, endocrine, and nervous – as well as brain activity to reputedly promote alertness. Applied topically, it is said to address symptoms of acne, rashes, backaches, gout, insomnia, nervousness, tension and hypertension, hair loss, warts, and nausea.
