CARDAMOMElettaria cardamomum (Zingiberacee)
Type: Organic (CE certification 009577-2015)
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.
