  Cumin Seed Total CO2 (no ratings yet)
Cuminum cyminum, ethically cultivated, CO2 total, extracted from seeds in Germany
•Warning, photosensitizer
•Avoid use with infants and children
•A full bodied heart note for perfumery or blending
•Some find it an aphrodisiac
•CO2 Extract contains both Cumin Essential oil and Fixed Oil
•High in Oleic and linoleic acids; blend with fixed oils for massage


Aaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh... an essential for any masculine blend, this Cumin extract is... spice, sultry, and cool, at the same time... strong, vibrant, yet nurturing at the same time. Most of the masculine oils are base notes, deep and rooted, this Cumin, on the other hand, is a fullbodied heart note.

Most therapeutic recommendations for Cumin Oil are based on traditional herbal uses. I have seen cumin recommended for muscular pain and rheumatism (I think its gentle warming would be helpful in a blend for joint pain, as an alternative to Black Pepper or Ginger) and for moving fluid in the body, whether for poor circulation, lymphatic congestion, or swollen glands. (I need to try blending it with Cistus for lymphatic drainage.)

Mark Webb, of recommends Cumin Seed CO2 as a carminative against stomach trouble and colics. (I would hesitate to use for colic in an infant, however!  But adults can occasionally experience the terrible intestinal cramping that we label "colic" in a baby.  Until now, the remedy I knew was Sweet Fennel seed CO2 or oil, it is good to have an alternative.

Emotionally Cumin Seed Oil is reputed to be reviving and stimulating. (Based on some of my staff members reactions, I have to also assume it’s an aphrodisiac.) Years ago Annie said that she wants her man to smell like this... strong, vibrant, yet nurturing at the same time. Today when Cindy smelled a sample she said, “Temptation!” “What?” I asked? “That Cumin is exotic, sensual, and quite frankly smells like temptation.” Okay. I am not going to argue. Remember, reactions to fragrance are very subjective and individual. I do not guarantee that you, or the woman in your life, will agree with the above. Jim was smiling when he brought the scent strip for us to evaluate it. He really likes it.

Please remember that this CO2 total extract contains both the Cumin Seed essential oils (approximately 25%) as well as fixed oil found in the seeds, normally extracted by cold pressing. As a Total extract it is also high in oleic and linoleic acids. It will blend easily with any fixed oils for massage blends or a solid perfume blend.

Cumin Seed Oil is said to blend beautifully with Galbanum, Lavender, Rosemary, Rosewood, Oakmoss. Used with a light hand it will deepen and add depth to spice notes, add texture and depth to the sweet wood oils.

WARNING: Photosensitizer. Do not expose skin to sunlight or ultraviolet light after applying. This is an oil with no extensive safety testing, please avoid using with babies or small children. It is GRAS for food flavoring.

SHELF LIFE: Approximately 2 to 3 years after you open the bottle.  Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.
