Cuminum cyminum (Apiacee)

Origin: Morocco

Of Egypt origin, Cumin has been grown since ancient times in Spain, France and Russia. A small herbaceous plant that grows to a height of fifty centimetres, it has dark green leaves and small pinkish-white flowers which yield tiny seeds.


The essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the mature seeds. It is a greenish-yellow liquid with a warm, delicate, spicy-musky fragrance. It combines well with the essential oils of Cardamom, Lavender, Rosewood, Rosemary and Turmeric.

(according to
popular herbalist tradition)

A key ingredient of curry, cumin is no longer used in herbal medicine in the West. In the Ayurvedic tradition it's widely used as a remedy for various types of digestive disturbance.

Essential oil of cumin is non-toxic and non-irritant; in the Orient it's considered a remedy for headache, and an aphrodisiac and tonic.

It's used as a fragrance component in soaps, colognes and perfumes, and as a flavouring agent in sauces and processed meats in the food industry.
