Caraway seeds contain the volatile oils carvone and limonene. These oils help calm the mind and body and especially the GI tract-helping with gas and intestinal spasms. And when Caraway is used in combination with peppermint, fennel, caraway, and wormwood, it has a healing effect on Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Also good for coughs, colds, and fevers, and will aid slightly in the discomfort of liver and gallbladder disease. And Caraway is anti-inflammatory and diuretic, and very good for bad breath and relieving menstrual cramps. Make a cup of Caraway Tea to sooth your day and help you feel good about life.
