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 offering powerful properties. The distinct aroma comes from D-Carvone, which makes the raw seeds the star flavour of dishes like Bavarian-style sauerkraut, rye bread, and German sausages. Next is limonene, a constituent commonly found in citrus oils that is known for its cleansing properties. This makes Caraway essential oil an ideal tool for oral care and keeping teeth looking clean.

Fun Fact

Fossilized caraway seeds have been found in Stone Age dwellings, suggesting that humans have used the seed for at least 8,000 years. The ancient Egyptians are also known to have used caraway in herbal preparations.

 

Plant description

The caraway plant grows in grasslands and cultivated fields native to Europe, Asia, and northern Africa. Several other names, such as meridian fennel, Persian cumin, or European caraway also know it. The plant resembles a fennel with clusters of small, white flowers in a flat-topped flower head, growing 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.


Oils that blend well with Caraway

Caraway oil blends well with herb and citrus oils, such as Roman Chamomile or Bergamot oil, and other spice oils such as Fennel oil, Cardamom oil, Ginger oil, and Coriander oil.
