When it comes to producing Caraway Essential Oil, not every bottle tells a story of purity..
The path to finding genuinely pure oils is obscured by industry practices that prioritize profit over purity. Here’s what to watch out for:
Synthetically Filled: Many essential oils on the market are filled with synthetic chemicals like phthalates (used to prolong scent) and benzene derivatives (cheap fragrance enhancers). These additives can cause allergic reactions, hormonal imbalances, and long-term health risks.
Heat Damage to the Plant: High-temperature extraction methods compromise the oil's composition, breaking down its beneficial compounds. This heat can transform therapeutic terpenes into less effective or potentially harmful by-products.
Residual Chemicals Which Harm the Planet: The use of solvents like hexane in the extraction process can leave behind residues that not only pose health risks but also contribute to pollution and harm to wildlife and ecosystems.
Whats different with us, as Green Fields Oils Factory?
Here at Green Fields Oils Factory, we are completely different from anywhere else. From our extration methods, to even our genuine ethical practices!
1000 Year Old Traditional Method: Our oils are extracted using traditional steam distillation, a method perfected over centuries that ensures the purest, most potent oil without chemical residues.
Sustainability Through Zero-Waste Distillation: We've adopted a zero-waste cycle that really shows our dedication to sustainability. The water used in our cooling systems during distillation doesn't go to waste; instead, it's repurposed for cleaning. Furthermore, the plant material left after oil extraction is transformed into compost, returning valuable nutrients back to the earth and supporting the growth of future crops. This holistic approach not only minimizes our environmental impact but also reinforces the natural cycle of growth and renewal.

Caraway: A Seed of Tradition, Flavor and.. well.. wellness
Why did the caraway seed stop halfway through the marathon? Because it wanted to be a caraway home! (To briefly explain, it wanted to be carried away-caraway) :))
A Slice of History
Caraway, known for its aromatic seeds that offer a hint of anise with a peppery undertone, has roots that run deep into history. Cultivated in Europe, North Africa, and Western Asia for thousands of years, it's not just a spice but a bridge to the past, connecting us to ancient culinary and medicinal practices.
Caraway in Cookery
From rye bread to sauerkraut and beyond, caraway seeds have been adding depth and complexity to dishes around the world. Its unique flavor is a favorite in baking, soup making, and cheese seasoning, proving that good things indeed come in small packages. Ha.
The Gift of Wellness
Beyond tantalizing taste buds, caraway seeds are packed with health-promoting properties. Rich in fiber, antioxidants, and essential oils, they're known to aid digestion, relieve bloating, and even reduce symptoms of heartburn.
Extracting Caraway Essential Oil
The potent benefits of caraway are concentrated in its essential oil, obtained through steam distillation of the seeds. This oil amplifies the spice's digestive and health benefits, making it a powerful addition to your wellness toolkit. Whether used in aromatherapy or as a dietary supplement, caraway essential oil is a testimony to the spice's enduring legacy.
Bringing Tradition to Your Table
Caraway Essential Oil Flavored Coleslaw
- 4 cups shredded cabbage (a mix of red and green cabbage adds color and variety)
- 1 medium carrot, shredded
- 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise (or a vegan alternative for a lighter option)
- 1-2 drops of our caraway essential oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Optional: A sprinkle of sugar or honey for a touch of sweetness
Prepare the Vegetables: In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded cabbage, carrot, and thinly sliced onion. Toss them together until well mixed.
Mix the Dressing: In a separate small bowl, whisk together the apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, mayonnaise, and a sprinkle of sugar or honey if desired. This mixture will create a tangy and creamy base for your coleslaw.
Add Caraway Essential Oil: Carefully add 1-2 drops of caraway essential oil to the dressing. Remember, essential oils are potent, so start with one drop and adjust according to your taste preference.
Combine: Pour the dressing over the shredded vegetables. Toss everything together until the vegetables are evenly coated with the dressing. Season with salt and pepper to your liking.
Chill: For the best flavor, cover and refrigerate your coleslaw for at least an hour before serving. This resting period allows the flavors to meld together beautifully.
Serve: Give the coleslaw one last stir before serving. Enjoy as a refreshing side dish to complement your main courses.
Caraway seeds are more than just a culinary ingredient; they're a small but mighty force for good health and flavor. Incorporating caraway into your family's diet is an investment in tradition, taste, and well-being. As you enjoy the rich flavors and health benefits of caraway, remember that you're not just feeding your family; you're continuing a legacy of wellness that will continue to flourish for generations to come.
