Our organically grown cardamom essential oil is steam distilled from seeds harvested from the perennial cardamom plant, a member of the ginger family also known as the Queen of Spice, often cultivated beneath a shaded canopy of the forests in rural India. We love using this essential oil in a diffuser blend to help lift the spirits during those seasonal times when one might be feeling a bit down due to weather and also needing to fortify the immune system.
These gorgeous, light green Ellettaria cardamomum seeds are transformed into a warm, fresh, spicy essential oil that is helpful when looking to support a healthy digestive system, especially when working to ease nausea. This warming essential oil is also used in blends for helping to reduce minor pain and inflammation, as well when looking to help with congestion. Emotionally and energetically, this warming cardamom essential oil invites mental clarity and balance, especially during a situation where one might be worrying excessively.

The hot and spicy nature can cause skin irritation if not diluted. Cardamom should not be used for children under 5 years old, as 1,8 cineole can also cause CNS and breathing problems in young children. Use with caution on children between 5-10 years old.
