Cumin Essential Oil

Cumin Essential Oil (Cuminum cyminum) from Egypt is Therapeutic Quality Essential Oil steam distilled from the seeds.

Nearly all the medicinal properties of cumin come from its essential oils, which, in its pure form, is far more effective and beneficial than cumin seeds. The EO is mainly composed of cuminic, cymene, dipentene, limonene, phellandrene and pinene, and it blends well with angelica, caraway and chamomile.

Some massage therapists say that this oil is the secret ingredient of deep relaxation. With a peppery and rich aroma, massage therapists have said that it can  stimulate the mind while relaxing the body.
