Green Cardamom CO2
Cardamom has been used for centuries in medicines, cosmetics, perfumery, food flavorings, and more. The Elettaria cardamomum tree is an evergreen perennial from the ginger family. It’s native to forests in Burma, India, and Sri Lanka, but has been successfully cultivated in other tropical regions as well (we source ours from Guatemala). The tree itself grows on cane-like stems up to 15 feet tall and has leafy shoots with long, narrow leaves and yellow fruit pods.
Green Cardamom CO2 has an incredible fragrance that stays true to that of the fresh plant material. Its radiantly rich scent is warm, green, herbal, and balsamic-woodsy in a way that is both sweet and spicy. This oil stands apart from its steam-distilled variety because the CO2 extraction process preserves all the facets of the plant’s profile, resulting in an aroma much closer to the original scent. In addition to its pleasing fragrance, Green Cardamom is incredibly useful for supporting healthy digestion and easing an upset stomach. It also offers valuable respiratory support when seasonal threats are in the air so that you can breathe clearly. And Green Cardamom CO2 can even help produce a passionate and sensual atmosphere when you’re in the mood for romance.
