Caraway, also known as Kummel, Oleum Cari and Oleum Carvi, is the name of a plant that grows in Europe, Asia, and the United States. It is about two feet high, and has white or pink flowers. Holland is the leading exporter of Caraway, with Egypt, Morocco and Germany also involved in its cultivation. The most valuable part of the Caraway plant is its tiny, egg-shaped seeds. Caraway Seeds are good to eat, especially in rye bread. They are also used in making some kinds of cake and cheese. Caraway Seed has a sweet but slightly biting flavor and an aromatic, spicy aroma. The oil from the Caraway Seed is used in making health products. It is surprising that this oil can be useful both as a stimulant and as an anesthetic. It is believed that Caraway Seed has been used in Europe longer than any other spice.
For hundreds of years, Caraway Seed can be been used as a herb that can be used for many disorders of the digestive system, including constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, colic, heartburn, indigestion, flatulence and dyspepsia, for which it combines well with Peppermint. It can also be used as a gargle for laryngitis and in the ease of the symptoms of bronchitis and the common cold. Caraway Seed has been studied for its possible anti-infective properties and its positive effects on the digestion of ulcer sufferers.
