Description of Caraway Oil

Caraway Oil is steam distilled from the dried ripe "fruit" of an herb cultivated throughout northern and central Europe. In the West, caraway is most commonly associated with the smell of rye bread, which is often flavored with caraway seeds. The oil’s aroma is defined by D-Carvone, a light herbal component also found in Dill Oils. Caraway Oil’s uses revolve around flavorings for breads, pickles, liquors, and traditional savory seasonings but, also finds its way into aroma applications, especially with the rise of natural perfumery.
