Our organically grown cardamom essential oil is steam distilled from seeds harvested from this herbaceous perennial plant, also a member of the ginger family, cultivated in Sir Lanka or Guatemala.
These gorgeous cardamom seeds are transformed into a warm, fresh, spicy essential oil that is helpful when looking to support a healthy digestive system, especially with issues such as nausea. This warming oil is also welcome in blends for reducing pain and inflammation as well as to help when looking to formulate blends to help with congestion. This oil also invites mental clarity and balance, especially a situation where one is worrying excessively. We love to use this essential oil in a diffuser blend to help lift the spirits during the long winter months when one is missing more sunlight and looking to fortify the immune system.

The 1,8 cineole content may cause dry skin if used often. If you're using it often on the skin, such as in a bath or massage oils, use in a low dilution. 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.
