Cardamom – The Chi Enhancing Oil

Cardamom is often overlooked in aromatherapy and undervalued in it therapeutic potentiality. I think most people grab ginger or cinnamon, as these tend to be more popularized. Once someone smells this sweet, vegetative scent with camphoresque undertones, they connect to it on a deeper level and it opens up their mind and helps release certain emotional burdens. It is common in oral care products to sweeten breath, and enhance oral hygiene.


Cardamom Plant Characteristics

Cardamom is a aromatic plant that can grow up to 122 feet high.  It belongs to the zingiberaceae (ginger) family which is known for having creeping horizontal rhizomes. Pods that encase the cardamom seeds are produced at the base of the plant on strong, skinny stems.  The essential oil comes from seeds. The flowers are purple-ish in color, indicating its affinity to bring harmony and balance to the mind and body.  The plant likes warm temperatures, hence anyone who thrives better, or gets better when exposed to warm can benefit from this oil.


Mind, Body & Soul Benefits

In my own personal experience, cardamom came in handy when I was really run down, had extreme stress and fatigue, had a persistent cough due to silent reflux and felt like I was withering away. One of my mentors suggested I add cardamom herb spice to steamed veggies, and diffuse cardamom essential oil 2-3 times daily for about 15-20 minutes each session.  This in addition to getting adequate rest, limiting my diet, reducing my stress exposure and removing any chemical exposure, got me back on track within a week. This was a reminder to myself about the power of essential oils, food and self-care.  Other benefits that cardamom has to offer:

  • Physical: digestive and intestinal aid, fever, nausea, respiratory distress, oral health
  • Mental: overthinking, over-worrying, dizziness, mental fatigue, indecisive
  • Emotional:  warms a cold heart, emotionally drained, builds confidence and self-esteem, restores chi
