What is Caraway?
Native to Asia, Europe and Northern Africa, the caraway plant is closely related to fennel, cumin, and dill. Its seeds, which are also its fruit, have a pungent flavor similar to anise. Caraway has been used for ages in culinary practices as a spice in bread and other baked goods, as well as in cheeses and meats. Caraway has a long-standing tradition of use in folk practices due to its many benefits.
Steam distilled from the plant’s seeds, caraway oil’s peppery aroma is warm and subtly sweet, making it a popular fragrance component in soaps, lotions, and perfumes.
