    Organic Caraway essential oil

    Caraway is a umbelliferous plant cultivated for its leaves and seeds. It grows in temperate regions, where the soil is moist and the area is slightly shaded and protected from the wind. Its fruit is a spice whose use dates back to prehistoric times, used in ancient Egypt for funeral rites and highly appreciated in the Middle Ages for flavouring cheese, bread and pastries. Its essential oil gives off aniseed and spicy scents, tinged with notes of cumin.

Caraway essential oil is, in a way, the "higher octave". Precautions for use Not to be used by pregnant or breastfeeding women, children under 6 years of age, the elderly, people with epilepsy or a history of convulsions.
