Cardamom belongs to the same family as Ginger (Zingiberaceae). Cardamom has been used for centuries as a digestive aid relieving gas, nausea, heartburn and diarrhea. It is a wonderful oil for aiding mental concentration (cephalic). To help alleviate nausea, use on a tissue and inhale, or make the suggested cream and apply to the abdomen.
Reduces damp, congested conditions in the respiratory and digestive systems. When suffering from cold or flu, use to ease chest and head pain from tightness and congestion. Cardamom has a warm, sweet, spicy aroma.

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.
The suggested shelf life is 4-5 years.
