Pure Elettaria cardamomum essential oil from Guatemala.

A member of the ginger family, Cardamom is one of the oldest essential oils in perfumery. It was treasured in ancient Greece and Rome as perfume considered to bring about clarity of mind and energy.

Native to Asia, it is a perennial weed-like herb that can grow up to 12 feet and produces green pods from which seeds are harvested. As a spice, it has been used to freshen the breath and to flavour dishes and beverages. 

Its oil is a colorless, transparent, and mobile liquid. Cardamom essential oil has a tenacious spicy-sweet, rich, warm, aromatic aroma with a balsamic-woody and sweet drydown that awaken the senses and enlivens the heart. In perfume, it adds a warm, spicy, and invigorating quality that adds beautifully to floral bases. 

It blends well with agarwood, bergamot, black pepper, cedarwood, cinnamon, clary sage, coriander, galbanum, geranium, ginger, juniper, lavender, pine, rose, sandalwood, and ylang-ylang.

Essential oils, absolutes, and other pure plant extracts should not be applied to the skin without being properly diluted in a cosmetic carrier (such as jojoba oil, ethanol, Epsom salts, etc.) Always patch-test when using an essential oil or absolute for the first time, and research whether or not the extract you are using is skin-safe and in what quantity or that it is appropriate for its intended use. Do not ingest essential oils or apply them internally, and avoid contact with the eyes. Keep out of reach of children and pets, and consult a knowledgeable health practitioner before use when pregnant or breastfeeding.
