• Traditionally used to help support indigestion, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, colic, heartburn, flatulence and more.
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 coughs and the common cold. Caraway Seed has been studied for its possible anti-infective properties and its positive effects on the digestion of irritation sufferers.

Caraway is well-known as a flavoring agent for rye bread, pastries, and adult drinks. It also has a health history going back some 5,000 years, and was cultivated in ancient Egypt. Both the aromatic seeds and the oil of caraway, a biennial plant native to Europe, can be used to support health. The oil is taken from the dried, ripe fruit of the plant (called the seeds).

Potential Health Benefits

Commission E endorses caraway oil and seed for helping support upset stomach, bloating, and fullness. The commission also praised caraway for its antispasmotic qualities and ability to disinfect. Folklore credits caraway with the ability to help improve lactation in nursing mothers, a use that the commission didn't address.

Scientific Evidence

The chemicals limonene and carvone are credited by researchers for caraway's ability to calm the smooth muscles of the digestive system. A 1996 double-blind, placebo- controlled study in Germany found that a mixture of caraway and peppermint oil was more effective at supporting indigestion than a placebo. On the whole, "Modern scientific studies are few and far between," writes rejuvenateth writer Steven B. Karch, M.D., who adds "Immunity Boosting effects have been demonstrated in laboratory animals, but not in humans."

How to Use the Herb

The daily dosage for caraway oil is 3-6 drops, in 2 divided doses. For seeds, a daily dose of 1.5-6.0 grams is recommended. Freshly crushed seeds can be used in infusions with 2-3 teaspoonfuls per cup of boiling water; steep for at least 10 minutes.

Caraway has an anise-like flavor that is considered pungent. Also known as Persian Cumin and Meridian Fennel, Caraway is often used in spice blends or on its own for soups, breads, potatoes, borscht and other Mediterranean and European cuisine.

Caraway
Carum carvi L.

Family: Apiaceae.

Other Names: Carvi (French); Kümmel (German); carvi, cumino tedesco (Italian); alcaravea (Spanish).

Description: Caraway is a sparse biennial herb with compound, feathery leaves and small white flowers arranged in umbels. The small dry fruits are dark brown and somewhat sickle-shaped.

Origin: The herb is indigenous to Central Europe, the Mediterranean region and Asia. It is cultivated in many parts of the world.

Parts Used: Dried ripe fruits, known as "caraway seed" (Carvi fructus) and the essential oil (Carvi aetheroleum).

Therapeutic Category: Carminative, stomachic, spasmolytic, expectorant.

Uses and Properties: The main use is to help support dyspepsia, digestive issues and flatulence in adults and children (including babies). Caraway is added to laxatives (to help avoid griping) and included in cough mixtures. Numerous other beneficial effects are claimed: appetite stimulant, breath deodorant, expectorant and tonic.

Active Ingredients: The activity of caraway is ascribed to the volatile oil, of which (+)-carvone is the main constituent (45-65%), together with smaller quantities of limonene, dihydrocarvone, carveol, and others. Fruits contain 2-7% essential oil, up to 20% fatty oil, 13% polysaccharides, phenylpropanoids (caffeic acid, chlorogenic acid), flavonoids and flavonoiglycosides (quercetin, isoquercitrin) and traces of furanocoumarins (bergapten).

Health Effects: The fruit and the essential oil have proven spasmolyric and anti-germ activity. The stomachic and carminative effects are ascribed to the essential oil. Caraway is considered to be one of the most promising of all carminative herbs (including aniseed, coriander and fennel).

Notes: Caraway fruits have been a popular spice since ancient times. They are still widely used to flavour bread, cake, cheese, sauerkraut and adult drink (Kümmel).

Status: Pharm.; Comm. E+ (fruit and oil); ESCOP 3 (fruit).

Preparation and Dosage: The fruits or the volatile oil are included in mixtures or taken on their own (the fruits may be chewed). A daily dose of 3 - 6 drops of the essential oil is recommended (taken with some sugar), or 1.5 - 6 g of freshly crushed fruits (taken internally in the form of infusions or other preparations). Fruits are often included in tea mixtures.



Medicinal Usage

The roots, leaves, and seeds are all useful. The roots with a flavor suggesting a mix of parsnips and carrots, can be boiled as a vegetable. Use young shoots and leaves cooked with other vegetables or chopped in salads. The seeds, of course, are the familiar little flavor morsels scattered through a loaf of ryebread. They are good in sauerkraut, cheeses, apple sauce, soups, salad dressings, and apple pie. Caraway seeds contain small amounts of protein and B vitamins.

The seeds are diuretic, carminative, astringent, disinfectant, and galactogenic. In India, a bath of the seeds can be used to help support swellings of the womb, as a poultice for hemorrhoids, and as an eyewash. Combined with laxative herbs, caraway seeds will help avoid griping. Rheumatic pains are lessened with an external wash made with the seeds. The seeds are chewed to help support toothache, and a tea can be used to help support pleurisy.

The main constituents of the oil are carvone and limonene. The oil is disinfectant, antispasmodic, and antihistaminic.

General Herb Information

Caraway is a biennial herb native to Europe and Western Asia, widely naturalized in North America. Of thirty species of Eurasian origin, only Carum carvi is grown in gardens. Caraway grows to a height of 2 1/2 feet. The leaves are finely divided, resembling those of carrots. White, sometimes pink, flowers are borne on terminal or lateral compound umbels. The roots are thick and carrotlike. The seeds (fruits) are crescent shaped and about three-sixteenths of an inch long. Each half of the fruit (mericap) contains one seed and six oil tubes (vittae). It flowers from May to August.

Caraway is easily grown from seed sown in early spring or autumn. Seed sown in September will flower and produce seed the following summer. In the first year, an annual cover crop such as dill or coriander can be planted along with caraway. Caraway will grow rapidly after cover crops are harvested. Side dress with compost or seasoned manure in the fall or following spring to help speed growth. Sometimes caraway matures in the third summer of growth. Thin seedlings to stand at six-inch spacings. Four to eight pounds of seed will sow an acre.

Caraway likes full sun and will grow well in a dry heavy clay soil containing a fair amount of humus. Soil pH can range from 6 to 7.5. Cultivate plants when young to remove competing grasses. An acre may produce about half a ton of seed.

Harvest as soon as the fruits begin to ripen to minimize shattering, which causes caraway to self-sow and possibly become weedy. Seeds may ripen from June to August of the second year. Place harvested plants on a ground cloth to avoid seed loss.

Name

Carum carvi, L. (Umbelliferae), commonly called caraway seed. In French, it is Cumin des pres or Carvi; in German, Wisenkümmel or Kummel.

Source

Caraway is a biennial that flowers from May through June. It is native to Europe and Northern Asia where it grows in the grasslands and mountainous regions. The medically active components of the plant are contained in an oil extracted from the dried seeds.

History

The name is said to come from the Arabic, karawiya. Caraway was cultivated in ancient Egypt, and was probably used before then. The health use of caraway seeds is mentioned in the Bible. In Shakespeare's time, the roots were eaten as vegetables, and traditional herbalists recommended caraway to help improve digestion. Shakespeare even mentioned caraway in the Merry Wives of Windsor. Seeds were thrown at newly married couples to give them good luck. Caraway seeds have been used to make liqueurs ever since the process of alcoholic distillation was invented.

Traditional Support Uses

Antispasmodic, carminative, rubefacient, and to help promote appetite. Caraway was also used to help support menstrual cramps and promote the flow of breast milk.

Commission 13 Recommendations

Caraway can be used to help support abdominal bloating, dyspepsia (upset stomach), and digestive concerns.


Possible Effects

Volatile oils from plants can be divided into two groups. Caraway oil belongs to the group containing mostly terpenoid compounds (along with camphor oil, cardamon oil, citronella, juniper, lemon, orange, pine, sandalwood, spearmint and even turpentine, among others). The two most important components of caraway oil are called carvone and limonene. Modern scientific studies are few and far between, but in a double-blind, placebo- controlled study, mixtures of caraway and peppermint (a European formulation called Enteroplant) were more effective at supporting indigestion than was the placebo. Immunity-boosting effects have been demonstrated in laboratory animals, but not in humans. Nor has any clinical study ever confirmed traditional herbalist claims that caraway oil could increase the flow of breast milk or decrease menstrual cramping.

Dosage

Teas can be made from crushed leaves (three teaspoons infused in one-half cup of water) or seeds (one teaspoon of finely crushed seeds allowed to steep in freshly boiled water for 15 minutes). The daily dosage of caraway seeds is 1.5 to 6 grams. If the oil is being used, the recommended dose is three to six drops per day.
