Made from seeds of a plant in the ginger family, cardamom has a refreshing and invigorating aroma. A versatile spice used in cooking around the world, it stimulates digestion and helps clear channels in the kidneys, making it a tonic for overall health. When we are physically well, our spirits are uplifted and our minds become clearer. Because cardamom stimulates blood flow, it has a warming effect. This effect helps clear congestion from the lungs and may also help overcome conditions such as impotence.
Cardamom is a close relative to Ginger and commonly known to be an expensive cooking spice used to enhance the flavor of traditional Indian sweets and teas. As such, it is a deliciously good idea to add a few drops to your own cooking and baking endeavors to kindle an exotic hint of Indian flavor. Cardamom essential oil is especially good with breads, smoothies, and desserts.
In addition to making food taste good, Cardamom essential oil also helps food feel good by aiding in digestion and relieving the occasional feelings of stomach discomfort that may arise after over indulging or eating something that does not sit well with your digestive system.
The respiratory benefits of Cardamom are another hallmark of its therapeutic attributes. To experience them, diffuse Cardamom essential oil, inhale it directly from the bottle, or apply a few drops topically to your chest area for respiratory support that will have you breathing deeply and clearly and create within you a newfound sense of mental clarity and openness to the experiences and people in your surroundings. Because of these deeply useful attributes, Cardamom is one of the key ingredients in the wildly popular and effective doTERRA Breathe Respiratory Blend.
The Cardamom essential oil is extracted from Cardamom seeds that are grown in Guatemala under the guidance of doTERRA’s strict standards, which were enacted to ensure every essential oil is pure and suitable for therapeutic and internal use.
