  Cardamom Seed (no ratings yet)
Elettaria cardomomum, organically produced, steam-distilled seeds, Guatemala
•High in 1,8 Cineole
•Respiratory Aid
•Helpful for nausea, digestion
•Not recommended for use with young children


It’s hard to believe that this is a single oil, the aroma is so complex. Physically, cardamom is recommended for digestive problems and nausea. It is also said to be stimulating to the lungs, helpful for easing coughs and bronchitis. Emotionally, it is said to be uplifting and refreshing, but more gently so than the citrus oils, for example. I suspect it would blend well with many of the citrus oils, with the conifers (especially our Cypress Tip Essential Oil). I want to try it with our new Frankincense. Mmmmmmmm, Frankincense, Cardamom, and just a touch of Rose. Ah, yes!

Culinary hint: Add just a drop to the coffee filter when brewing a pot of after dinner coffee…or morning coffee for that matter. YUMMMM!

SAFETY: Robert Tisserand advises that oils high in 1,8-cineole can cause cns and breathing problems in young children.

SHELF LIFE: Approximately 2 to 3 years after you open the bottle.  Storing dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.
