Considered a “spice” essential oil, Cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum), is botanically related to ginger, and its fragrance packs an aromatic punch. With notes that can be described as fresh, sweet, and spicy; Aromatherapists seem to think Cardamom doesn’t nearly get as much attention as it deserves. Cardamom has been mentioned in several historical texts and was once believed to be an aphrodisiac. In India, it is common that Cardamom pods are chewed to freshen breath and improve digestion.
A soothing and revitalizing oil, Cardamom blends well with other warm and spicy oils, as well as floral and citrus oils. Other botanical oils that blend well with Cardamom are Cinnamon, Clove, Cedarwood, Ylang Ylang, and Patchouli.
Cardamom is rich in phytonutrients and especially high in manganese, a vital mineral in helping the body form connective tissues. It has also been showing to boost sex hormones, fat metabolism, and calcium absorption. Due to its antiseptic, digestive, diuretic, expectorant and stimulant properties, Cardamom Essential Oil can be used to address many symptoms including heartburn, cough, nausea, and mental stress.
