Elettaria cardamomum


Plant and Oil Description

Ancient Sankrit texts describe this spicy, nutty plant which has long since played a dominant role in Indian cuisine and culture. From its integration in Ayurveda medicine practices dating back to the 4th century, to traditional Indian curries and teas, this tropical plant has made its way into western culture due to its undeniably authentic aroma and positive homeopathic benefits. The plant boasts white to lilac floral blooms, but it’s the seeds of the plant that are used to create both the aromatic spice and coveted essential oil. 


What’s it Good For?

  1. Improved breathing – Aromatherapy treatments using cardamom may increase levels of oxygen uptake and relax the throat air passage. These benefits are particularly useful before performing cardiovascular exercises and for people who suffer from asthma attacks.

Anti-inflammatory components in cardamom oil help relax overworked muscles by easing inflammation and associated pain.

Dilute our cardamom oil in water and use as an oral rinse. Add essential oils with similar antibacterial properties, such as SenseLAB’s frankincense or cinnamon oils, to create your own sophisticated aroma.
  4. Antibacterial and antifungal – A wealth of studies have shown cardamom oil’s effectiveness at warding off bacterial and fungal infections. The versatility for essential oils with antibacterial properties are endless because of their ability to control foul odors and offer an extra layer of protection from potentially harmful elements.
