Description

A close relative to Ginger, Cardamom is known as an expensive cooking spice and for being beneficial to the digestive system in a variety of ways when ingested. Cardamom is commonly used internally to help soothe occasional stomach discomfort. Its distinct scent can promote a positive atmosphere. Ingested Cardamom also has profound effects on the respiratory system due to its high 1,8-cineole content, which promotes clear breathing and respiratory health. Native to Southeast Asia, Cardamom is added to traditional Indian sweets and teas for its cool, minty aroma and flavor. doTERRA Cardamom essential oil is extracted from Cardamom seeds grown in Guatemala, using our strict CPTG® testing standards. Through a collaborative and responsible sourcing arrangement, we are able to have a significant impact on the lives of local partners, ensuring that these farming communities enjoy improved livelihoods.

Suggested Uses:

  • Use internally as part of a daily health regimen to support healthy gastrointestinal function.
  • Add to bread, smoothies, meats, and salads to enhance food flavor.
  • Diffuse or inhale for a sense of openness.
  • Although you can buy ground cardamom at your local grocery store, you will likely be missing some of the flavour of the original seed because the essential oils start to lose flavour soon after the seeds are ground. Dip a toothpick in your bottle of Cardamom oil and swirl the toothpick directly into your recipe; this will give you just the right amount of flavour.

Directions for Use:

Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of choice.

Internal use: Dilute one drop in 125 ml of liquid.

Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with a carrier oil to minimize any skin sensitivity. For massage, mix 5 drops with 10 ml carrier oil. For bath, mix 5 drops with 5 ml carrier oil. For perfuming, mix 1 drop to 10 drops carrier oil.See additional precautions below.
