Elettaria cardamomum (Zingiberacee)

Origin: Ceylon

Originally from tropical regions of Asia (mainly southern India) and now widely cultivated throughout India and central America.
Cardamom is a herbaceous perennial plant that's similar to cane with its characteristic sabre-shaped leaves. It grows to a height of four metres, with yellowish, purple-tipped flowers gathered in spikes.


The essential oil is extracted by steam distillation of the dried seeds. The oil is colourless (or occasionally with a slightly yellow tinge), with a distinctive, warm, spicy-sweet fragrance with a woody, balmy undertone. It combines well with the essential oils of Bergamot, Caraway, Cinnamon, Citron, Clove, Labdanum, Neroli Orange and Ylang-ylang.

(according to
popular herbalist tradition)

Prized as perfume ingredient in the Greco-Roman period, Cardamom is widely used as a spice in cooking (e.g. curry). It has been used in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine for over three thousand years as a remedy for digestive and respiratory ailments.

Essential oil of cardamom has long been valued for its ability to revitalize and tone older skin; but it also has excellent anti-septic (disinfectant) and purifying properties.
It's also used for treating eczema and psoriasis.

In industry, essential oil of Cardamom is widely used as a fragrance component in soaps, detergents and cosmetics (especially those with an Oriental note).
