Cumin Essential Oil
Cumin Seed Essential Oil
Cumin Essential Oil is a steam-distilled essential oil produced from the cumin seeds, Cuminum cyminum that has a warming sensation when applied topically. As with most essential oils, cumin seed essential oil needs to be diluted before used on the skin. Dilution allows for the safe application of cumin essential oil on the skin. Cumin essential oil is thought to help stimulate the digestive system and warm up your body.
How to Use Cumin Essential Oil
To use cumin seed essential oil topically, it is necessary to use a carrier oil to dilute the essential oil. Essential oils are concentrated and can cause irritation and burns if used directly on the skin. Diluting the essential oil with a carrier oil allows for safe usage, allowing your skin to benefit from the essential oil without harm. Blend a couple drops of cumin seed essential oil with jojoba oil or fractionated coconut oil to create a warming massage oil.
Or, if you have a diffuser, diffuse the cumin seed essential oil in a room to stimulate appetites before a meal. Some people enjoy the scent of cumin seed essential oil and use the oil as a part of their aromatherapy routine. Simply dilute the essential oil, place under your nose, smell, and enjoy.
While many wonder how to use cumin essential oil, it may surprise you to know it can be a versatile essential oil. Try our cumin seed essential oil today and see how it can help your life!
