The tree’s height is 40 cm, simple or branchy, much furry, while the leaves are often spread and plumaged, and the flower is soft in white or pale blue color.
It is grown in the east and warm countries, especially Egypt, Syria and India. There are inscriptions from Egyptian medicine, where you can see that it was widely used. Egyptian pharaohs used it as a spice in food and as a cure for many diseases, inflammations, allergies, metabolic disorders, urine system blockage and depression. There is an interesting fact that a bottle of caraway oil is found in the tomb of Tutankhamun.
It is said by the Eastern people that caraway can cure everything, except for death! There is a reference in the Bible that it is used as an ingredient in the bread that prevents flatulence, cures lung diseases, stomach aches and hepatitis A.
Nowadays black caraway is reinvented in the modern medicine and in the last 40 years there are more than 400 informational studies for the caraway and it’s active substances.
Caraway reinforces gastric function, boosts digestion and hormone production, urine purification. It has a positive effect on lung and skin diseases, and difficulties with asthma.
