Collection: Cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum)
Spicy. Exotic. Sensual.
Originally grown on India’s Malabar Coast, Cardamom first appeared on the medicinal stage some 3,500 years ago when its use was recorded in the Egyptian pharmacological document Ebers Papyrus.
Today, most Cardamom comes from Guatemala, which is where ours is sourced. Oil extraction, derived from steam distillation of the plant’s seeds, is low yield and painstaking, making Cardamom one of the world’s more rare and expensive essential oils.
Cardamom stimulates an appetite for life. It revives, refreshes, and relieves, cleansing mind, body, and soul in the process.
