A perennial, reed-like herb that grows up to 12 feet in height, Cardamom bears long sheathing stems that bloom yellow flowers with purple tips. Our pure essential oil is extracted from Cardamom seeds through hydro-diffusion.
The aroma of Cardamom essential oil is warm and spicy with middle notes that are lightly sweet and bordering on floral. A member of the ginger family, this well-known culinary herb is universally valued and used extensively around the globe as a lovely and lively flavoring agent. It is added to a varietal seed mixture offered in many Indian restaurants as an after-dinner treat to encourage a happy tummy. Cardamom has been mentioned as a useful herb from the time of Hippocrates to the current day British Herbal Pharmacopoeia.
Cardamom has been found to be particularly helpful for the digestive system, working as a laxative and soothing colic, flatulence, dyspepsia and even nausea caused by pregnancy. As a massage oil or diluted in the bath, cardamom oil has been prescribed by aromatherapists to assist with the digestive system and as a general tonic.
