Caraway 100% Pure Essential Oil, 1/2 fl oz (15 mL) Dropper Bottle
Caraway is a flowering herb that grows in many regions of the globe, including Asia, Europe and North Africa. Its tiny brown seeds are the source of its strong and spicy aroma. Commonly incorporated into baking and cooking, caraway has been used for centuries and is particularly popular in the Western world. Caraway is a member of the plant family Apiaceae, which also includes anise, cumin, dill and fennel, all fellow herbs that share some of the same fragrant qualities and beneficial properties.

History of Caraway
Sometimes referred to as a variety of cumin or fennel, caraway has been used for ages, particularly in European cuisine, where it is regularly worked in to baked goods, cheeses, and meats for unmistakable added flavor. German folktales point to caraway seeds as being symbolic of protection. While caraway shares some aromatic notes with anise, cumin and fennel, its comforting, spicy scent has a pronounced peppery personality all its own.
