one of my favorites

Cardamom. I love this oil intensely. Firstly, it smells heavenly. It is deeply warming and sensual. It tingles on the tongue and so many other places I use it with 1 drop of cape chamomile, immortelle and a tsp of honey for a truly euphoric, sensual experience. Cardamom is great for any stomach upset, specifically for trapped gas or indigestion. In Ayurveda, it is used as a phelgm expectorant. It works so effectively. It is good for those cold winter nights. Put 1 drop on both foot and wrap them in thick socks. Your feet will be warm in no time (and smelling good too)


The healing energy of our Cardamom Essential Oil draws upon over four thousand years of medicinal use. Enjoyed by the Ancient Greeks and Romans as a fragrant perfume, cardamom oil also carries powerful healing benefits. The Ancient Egyptians would use cardamom to freshen and clean their mouths, teeth, and gums, while the Vikings used the fragrant spice in their cooking and wine making.

Our Cardomom Essential Oil is organically sourced from the wild plants of Costa Rica, where the spice grows in fragrant green pods. Cardamom is one of the most luxurious, sought-after spices in the world. In Saudi Arabia, cardamom coffee is the most universally popular drink in the entire country, with the spice being the key ingredient to what we now think of as “Arabian Coffee.” Cardamom’s medicinal uses date back to 1,500 BCE, when the healing properties of the plant were included in an Ancient Egyptian medical document known by anthropologists as The Ebers Papyrus.

Ancient Indian Brahmanic scriptures prescribed cardamom for weight loss, urinary tract infections, jaundice, indigestion, and bad breath. Many modern Indians still chew cardamom wrapped in betel nut leaves to aid digestion and freshen breath after a meal. With its invigorating scent and mood-stabilizing properties, cardamom oil treats indigestion, relieves sore or spasmodic muscles, alleviates depression, and protects against internal infections. Our Cardamom Essential Oil captures the spicy mysteriousness of ancient medicinal wisdom. Cardamom’s seed pods are like green diamonds of resilient strength. An ancient aphrodisiac that is lovely as a fragrance or a drop in honey. These sweet and spicy gems are uplifting and inspiring with their exotic fragrance. Cardamom is known for stimulating a digestive system that has been compromised by stress. It inspires strength and stability and supports clear, uncompromising action attuned to the frequency of Clarity.

“Cardamom is pleasanter of savour and smell with some small bitterness.”
- Galen, Seventh Book of Simples, circa 15th century

“When the winter has settled us, we breathe in vinegar and cardamom, and consider the value of rain.”
- Liz Lefroy
