Cumin seed Oleoresin
CUMIN Cuminum cyminum: The smell is very exotic to me. It is extremely powerful, green spicy, but not sharp, more of a soft and mellow scent. If used in a blend remember a drop of this scent goes a long way! But it will give the blend that exotic aroma that you may be looking for! This oil is wonderful for digestive disorders, and colic too. It is good for exhaustion and works well in blends for that purpose. It helps to build the immune system, it is known to help with allergies to a degree. It helps with poor circulation and lymphatic congestion.
