  Caraway Seed CO2 (no ratings yet)
Carum carvi, CO2 extracted from organic seeds, Germany
•Eases digestion, cramps, gas
•Expectorant, Anticatarrhal
•Invigorating, Uplifting
•Contraindicated for tumors


Superior digestive oil, the clear, light yellow liquid emits a warm, sweet yet spicy aroma, and reminds me of warm, fresh, bread baking in the oven, good for uplifting, invigorating, and stimulating the senses. The seeds of this herb related closely to Coriander, Cumin, and Fennel, have been used for flavoring cheese, bread, cakes, and vegetables throughout Europe for hundreds if not thousands of years.

Gabriel Mojay says Caraway represents steadfast determination and constant commitment in Aromatherapy for Healing the Spirit and indicates it aids with centering and “earthing” a restless, nervous, or mercurial mind.

On the digestive front, Battaglia says it has a calming effect on stomach disorders and general bowel complaints including flatulence, stomach cramps, bloating, indigestion, and diarrhea, as well as menstrual cramps. It is considered an appetite stimulant. In the UK it is used for promoting milk secretions in nursing mothers. Shirley Price says due to its gentle expectorant qualities, it is an excellent oil for the respiratory system including bronchitis. She further says it is one of the best oils for combating vertigo. High in carvone (45–65%) and limonene (35–55%), Caraway is anticatarrhal, antimicrobial, antiseptic, antispasmodic, astringent, diuretic, digestive, and expectorant. Non-toxic and nonirritating although it may cause dermal irritation in concentration or as a mild irritant on mucous membranes.

Warning: Kurt Schnaubelt reports it is contraindicated for tumors.  If using topically I would use at a 1% to 1.5% dilution.

Batch No. GE-571307

BLENDS WELL WITH: Marjoram, Orange, or Fennel for digestive complaints.
