About the Oil

This Cardamom essential oil is sourced from the seeds of plants organically cultivated in Guatemala and distilled using carbon dioxide (instead of water). This distillation process works better in relation with this herb to preserve its warm, spicy nature. Other processes can render the oil 'flat' and ruin its complexity.

It has also been used for centuries as a component of many sensual aphrodisiac blends.
