Cumin Seed Essential Oil

Description

Originally from the Mediterranean area, Cumin is a small annual herb about 50cm ( 20 inches) high with deep green, narrow feathery leaves and tiny white or pink flowers, followed by small oblong seeds.

Known since Bible times, it is mainly used for its digestive properties. The Egyptians used it for headaches. The Pharisees paid their taxes with it and in the Middle Ages, feudal lords paid serfs with Cumin for services rendered.
