EMOTIONAL / SPIRITUAL / MENTAL ASPECTS: Emotionally, caraway is of benefit to those who were raised in uncaring or emotionally unstable environments. Often abused or neglected children grow into adults that avoid commitment in relationships. They fear any form of stability, doubting that such a thing could be real or doubting their ability to be constant and consistent themselves. Often, they doubt their own worthiness for such a relationship. Caraway reinforces the earth meridian - steadfast constancy and need to nurture others.
