Description

Caraway essential oil comes from the caraway plant, a member of the carrot family and a cousin to dill, fennel, anise, and cumin. Caraway seeds may be small, but these tiny packages yield an essential oil bursting with compounds that offer a range of powerful properties. The distinct aroma comes from D-Carvone, which makes the raw seeds the star flavor of dishes like Bavarian-style sauerkraut, rye bread, and German sausages. Next is limonene, a constituent commonly found in citrus oils that’s known for its cleansing properties. This makes Caraway essential oil an ideal tool for oral care and keeping teeth looking clean.

Suggested Uses:

  • Apply one drop of Caraway oil to your toothbrush when brushing teeth both morning and night to help maintain a clean mouth.
  • Add one drop Caraway oil and one drop Clove oil to water and use as a daily mouth rinse
  • Support a soothing abdominal massage by including Caraway oil for a gentle aroma.
  • Diffuse three to four drops for a sweet, calming aroma perfect before or during a meal.
  • Add one drop Caraway oil and one drop Lavender oil to warm bath water for a uniquely relaxing aroma.

Directions for Use:

Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
Internal use: Dilute one drop in 125 ml of liquid.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with Fractionated Coconut Oil to minimize any skin sensitivity. For massage, mix 5 drops with 10 ml carrier oil. For bath, mix 5 drops with 5 ml carrier oil. For perfuming, mix 1 drop to 10 drops carrier oil.

Plant description

The caraway plant grows in grasslands and cultivated fields native to Europe, Asia, and northern Africa. It’s also known by several other names, such as meridian fennel, Persian cumin, or European caraway. The plant looks like fennel with clusters of small, white flowers in a flat-topped flower head, and grows approximately 24 inches tall. A biennial plant, caraway generally begins blooming and producing seeds in its second year. The long and tiny seeds are then collected, crushed, and transformed into Caraway essential oil through steam distillation.

Cautions:

Only use diluted. Take no more than one drop per day. Keep out of reach of children. Keep out of eyes and mucosa.

 Size: 5ml
