For the month of November, we are introducing two spicy KidSafe seed oils that lend comfort to upset stomachs.
Our Caraway Seed CO2 and Celery Seed oils are an Oil of the Month offering throughout the month of November. Check back with us soon to see if we have added it to our collection.
Caraway Seed CO2
The light and refreshing characteristics of Caraway Seed CO2 have a profound effect on emotional well-being, leaving you balanced and energized for the day. Its warm, rich aroma is similar to fresh rye bread and helps stimulate a tired mind and promote feelings of alertness. Traditionally, the seeds of the Caraway herb were often used to make “comfits,” or seeds coated in sugar, to eat after meals to help aid in digestion and relieve feelings of bloat. That is because the seed, much like the oil it creates, has carminative properties that support the digestive system and can ease discomfort caused by excess gas and cramping. Additionally, Caraway Seed CO2 can support the respiratory system during times of seasonal concerns as well as encourage a strong immune system. It makes a great addition to cleaning products thanks to its high limonene content, which not only helps to freshen up your space, but also imparts a stimulating, inviting, and spicy scent.
An oil so nice we’re offering it twice! Previously offered in 2017, we couldn’t resist pairing the popular Caraway Seed CO2 with Celery Seed as they complement each other nicely.

Celery Seed Essential Oil
Cultivated for thousands of years, the popular aromatic vegetable Celery is no stranger! Both its fiber-packed stalks and seeds are often added to soups, salads, smoothies, and snacks for an added boost of vitamins and minerals. It is from the steam distillation of the tiny, flavorful seeds that the vibrant, tenacious essential oil is produced. With its warm, herbal, and slightly spicy aroma, Celery Seed Essential Oil provides wonderful support to an upset stomach, especially gut issues related to feelings of stress and nervousness. When used as part of a warm compress or massage blend, this oil can also relax discomfort associated with menstrual cramps and helps to warm and loosen tight, overworked muscles and joints.
