caraway oil


CARAWAY ESSENTIAL OIL OVERVIEW

Caraway, or Carum carvi, has been used as a medicine and a spice for millennia. An aromatic biennial member of the Umbelliferae family, it is closely related to Anise and Fennel and thus bears similar medicinal qualities. Caraway seeds have been prized as a natural digestive aid since the ancient Romans baked them into their cakes and pastries to promote proper digestion after sumptuous banquets. In fact, the therapeutic value of the seeds is derived from the presence of essential oil. The oil, extracted from the seeds by steam distillation, can help relieve digestive complaints. Caraway Oil has carminative properties that help regulate intestinal function, dispel gas, alleviate abdominal cramps, ease bloating and boost your appetite. When used in steam inhalations, the oil promotes expectoration and alleviates congestion due to bronchitis, colds and sinus infections. It can also be applied topically to soothe joint pain caused by rheumatism and arthritis. Cosmetically, the oil helps to regulate sebum production and reduces acne, oily skin and unsightly blemishes.

EXTRA BLENDING TIP: Caraway Oil is often used as a "middle" note to give fullness to perfumes. It blends well with woodsy and balsamic scents for an herbal, earthy fragrance.

THERAPEUTIC EFFECT: Caraway Oil contains carvone, dihydropinol, carvol and limonene, which have an invigorating effect on the entire body. The oil strengthens and regulates digestion and is effective for indigestion, bloating, gas (flatulence), nervous stomach, relief of intestinal cramps, diarrhea, stomach ache, and poor appetite (boosting the appetite). It is used for relief of menstrual cramps. Inhaling the oil loosens mucus and eases respiratory congestion and is effective for sinus inflammations and congestion. As a gargle it is effective for sore throats and bad breath. Applied topically, the oil helps treat acne and oily skin. The oil is also effective for physical and mental exhaustion.

TAKE CARE: Because Caraway Oil can irritate the skin, it should always be diluted and used only externally in very small doses. Young children and pregnant or nursing women may instead want to consider using Fennel and Aniseed oils, which offer similar effects.
