Cardamom Elettaria cardamomum - India
Essential Oil - 15mL
This oil is obtained from the seeds by steam distillation. Cardamom essential oil can be described as soft, warm, and spicy, but is best greatly diluted so as not to be overpowering. This oil is very true to the spice, and when fresh has a hint of eucalyptus. Oils that work well with Cardamom are Black Pepper, Eucalyptus, Frankincense, Geranium, Ginger, Lime, Pine, Tea Tree, Vetiver and Ylang Ylang I. This oil is used to help stimulate memory and concentration, digestive problems, and mental fatigue. Cardamom is recommended for PMS symptoms when used in a massage oil.
