Cardamom essential oil is a member of the ginger family and features a spicy, refreshing aroma. Check out the physical and emotional benefits of this often-overlooked essential oil.
What It’s For
Cardamom essential oil comes from the seeds of a plant related to ginger. Seed essential oils are especially helpful for grounding and supporting the root chakra. Additionally, many people enjoy using cardamom as a mouth freshener. It also helps relieve muscle spasms. The slightly warming sensation can soothe spasms of the respiratory tract and help soothe persistent coughing.
This essential oil is an ingredient in Transformation and Clarity because it helps encourage mental focus and openness to change. Finally, this herbaceous essential oil also supports the kidneys and a healthy libido by promoting urination and circulation.
The predominant constituent in Cardamom is eucalyptol (also known as 1,8-cineole). It is an oxide with a minty, cool flavor and aroma. Eucalyptol is warming and especially beneficial for respiratory support.
Who Should Use Cardamom Essential Oil
This is one essential oil that seems widely underused. The gentle warming sensation produced by this oil can help soothe muscle spasms for soothing relief. You can apply it or diffuse it daily to promote grounding, mental clarity, and willingness to accept new circumstances and challenges.
