Product Abstract: Originally from the Mediterranean area, Cumin is a small annual herb about 50 cm (20 inches) high with deep green, narrow feathery leaves and tiny white or pink flowers, followed by small oblong seeds. In use for over 4,000 years, Cumin was mainly used in cooking. The ancient Greeks and Romans used it much as we use black pepper. In the Holy Land, people used it to pay their debts and taxes with it. During the Middle Ages, feudal lords sometimes paid their serfs with Cumin for services rendered, before it fell out of favor with Europeans as a spice. Today it is popular in the cuisines of India, the West Indies, and Central and South Americas.

Cautions: This Essential Oil has phototoxic properties and exposure to the sun must be avoided after application to the skin. Due to their presence, please consult a physician prior to using this oil. Dilute well before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.

This is a good strong cumin that smells like cumin wafting in the air when it's cooking in a dish times a hundred. It's so potent you can smell it even with the lid closed, which is not always a bad thing, but I keep it in a larger glass jar to better contain the smell.

This is a nice potent cumin that you can smell even with the bottle closed, so I keep it in its own jar in the kitchen to better contain the scent.

I've read elsewhere that cumin works well as an antidepressant, and because I suffer clinically I thought I would try essential oils (beats medication). I've learned a great deal in my attempts at aiding my condition holistically. Some EOs are calming, providing serentity to help with depressive moods (chamomile, ylang ylang) but some work as stimulants to jack up your energy and disposition, cumin is very much the latter. This is my first bottle of cumin oil, but I have no itention of ever switching to a different company. I cannot recommend this enough, the potency and quality of aroma is remarkable.

If you are familiar with cumin, this oil smells exactly like the spice: warm, smokey, sharp and spicey. I love it -- it adds a bold aroma to my blends that keeps people guessing.
