Clarifying as a spice, Caraway Essential Oil is an ancient tonic for brain-strain. It has been used since Roman times as a cooking additive and an aperitif. In skincare, caraway is said to encourage a regenerated and revitalized appearance. Oily skin, blemish-prone skin, and dry scalp may all benefit from an application of caraway diluted in an organic carrier oil, too.
"You can take all the sincerity in Hollywood, place it in the navel of a fruit fly and still have room enough for three caraway seeds and a producer's heart."
~ Fred Allen
