Ajwain seeds contain an essential oil which is about 50% thymol which is a strong germicide, anti-spasmodic and fungicide. Thymol is also used in toothpaste and perfumery. It is used in a steeped liquid form against diarrhea and flatulence. In Asia the seeds are used as a household remedy for indigestion and colic, and used in poultices to relieve asthma and arthritis.

Preparation and Storage
Ajwain is usually ground in mortar and pestle, or crushed by rubbing between hands or fingertips before using. When used whole, for parathas or other breads, lightly bruise the seeds first, to release oils and increase flavour. The seeds can be stored indefinitely if kept from light in airtight containers.
We export Ajwain from Pakistan in Bulk quantities to Srilanka, Bengladesh, India, Nepal and some other asian markets.
