Scientific Understanding of CO2 Essential Oil

For a more Scientific view, we reached out to our dear friend in the aromatherapy world, Mark Webb. He is best known for his passion for CO2s both in the laboratory and in food flavoring. Webb provides independent consulting expertise in aromatic compound application to the food, beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetic & personal care industries and educates many worldwide on SCF CO2 extraction & extracts. Here’s what he has to say about Caraway Seed CO2:

Caraway Seed CO2-4438

‘Caraway CO2 is aromatically superior to the EO, generally a cleaner, richer aroma. Culinary uses include rye bread, so that’s where that well-known association comes from. There are many other dietary uses for this aromatic including in beverages and these also apply therapeutically in dealing with GIT (gastrointestinal) upset. See more on it’s therapeutic benefits here.

Chemistry of the EO & Select SFE CO2 are very similar when you view GCMS data side by side with particular focus upon the carvone/limonene ratio.

The SFE CO2 generally has a higher limonene ratio to carvone due to polarity differences between the two constituents in the extraction media…so this does contribute to the smooth, rounder, fresher aroma.

Therapeutically they are pretty much the same, being excellent antispasmodics in dealing with gut issues as I previously mentioned, hence the uses in aperitifs etc. There are also some studied upon the antimicrobial efficacy of the aromatic which shows it to be or medium efficiency.

Caraway is also a great alternative to spearmint in blends were the client can’t stand mint aromas( d-carvone), it has l-carvone which is a safe mucolytic, and antispasmodic, which when coupled with the limonene has a penetrating gently tonifying effect on GIT tissues. Also good in respiratory blends or in uterine toning, good for the lymphatic system as well.’
