Our organically crafted Caraway Seed Oil is steam distilled from the of the seeds of the biennial Carum carvi plant growing naturally in Egypt. This essential oil has a very strong, fresh diffusive, spicy, fruity, woody, warm aroma like that of freshly crushed caraway seeds; the aroma is very often described as reminiscent of freshly baked rye bread. These plants are widely cultivated in Germany, Russia and many Scandinavian countries, where the culinary use is ubiquitous.

While Caraway seeds are frequently used as a spice in breads, cakes, cheese and rolls, the essential oil is used as a fragrance component in soaps, lotions, and perfumes. Caraway is also used as a breath freshener and is a common component in toothpaste and mouthwash products, and has a long history of use in native folk medicine.
