Essential Oil Spotlight
Cumin is a flowering plant in the Apiaceae family that grows up to one foot in height and is grown heavily in Mediterranian countries.
Its seeds are contained within a fruit and are typically dried for use in many dishes around the world. Cumin was used anciently, with use of the seeds dating back to 2000 B.C. Traditional uses for Cumin include promoting digestive health and circulation.
It was used ritually for internal protection and to protect one’s home. Cumin is rich in cuminaldehyde, which supports the digestive system.*
Cumin has a powerful aroma and its nutty, spicy taste packs a powerful punch to recipes, so only a small amount of Cumin essential oil is needed for cooking.
Cumin can be added to a variety of dishes and entrees including chili, dips, curry, soups, and salsa. It can also be used as a spice for meats and marinades.
