Celery was used as early as the 5th century by the Chinese, and widely used in Indian Ayurvedic practices.
Conventionally grown grocery store celery looks nothing like the celery seen at local farmers’ markets. The celery plant grows up to three feet tall, is bright green and radiating with life. Celery has a complex, strong, sweet, and spicy aroma. The plant takes two years to fully mature and produce its small fruit, which are tan to brown in colour.
The seeds are the primary repository for the essential oil. Limonene, the dominant constituent in Celery Seed is also found in citrus peel and fir needle oils.
The oil has a calming, relaxing and positive aroma, and a very distinct, strong flavour.
