Botanical name: Cuminum cyminum

Country of origin: India
For more than 4000 years, Cumin has been used in culinary applications as a spice. At one time, it also had pecuniary applications and was often used for the repayment of debts and taxes and as payment for employees. Today, Cumin remains a popular spice in the cuisines of India, the West Indies, and in Central and South Americas.
When steam distilled, the seeds of the Cuminum cyminum botanical yield an extract known as Cumin Essential Oil, which has a thin consistency and a color that ranges from greenish-yellow to a shade of brown. Its warm, spicy, musky, and slightly nutty aroma is reputed to help dispel negative mental states, such as stress and anxiety, and to stimulate the appetite, which is thought to be especially beneficial for those who suffer from eating disorders.
Cumin Oil's warming and calming effect on the skin is thought to be especially beneficial for reducing muscle soreness when used in massage applications. This spicy Essential Oil is believed to support metabolic function, enhance circulation, facilitate the body's detoxification, promote weight loss in a healthy way, decrease water retention and swelling, and regulate menstruation while helping to minimize discomforts associated with it. Cumin Essential Oil is also commonly used cosmetically for its believed ability to help reduce the appearance of cellulite, acne, and wrinkles.
With anti-microbial properties, Cumin Essential Oil is thought to function as an anti-septic treatment that is reputed to assist the healing of wounds by protecting the body against toxins and preventing or reducing the development of infections.
