If you’re looking to learn about different essential oils, then you’re in the right place! Read below to find out more about Caraway essential oil and its many wonders.
Steam distilled from the seed of Carum carv, Caraway oil is sweet and spicy with a slight peppery undertone. This oil is a middle note oil that blends well with Basil, Chamomile, Coriander, Frankincense, Ginger, Lavender, and Orange.
Caraway is phenomenal for the digestive system. It can be used to help relieve menstrual cramps, gas, and heartburn. For gas, add a drop or two to a massage blend (perhaps combining with Ginger or Chamomile) and gently massage into the abdomen. When used in a diffuser, Caraway can help with colds and coughing by helping to loosen phlegm. This oil has also been used in oral medications and toothpastes as a flavoring agent. If you’d like to know some of the oils that Caraway can be substituted for, check out this list.
