cardamom
A close relative to Ginger, Cardamom is known as an expensive cooking spice and for being beneficial to the digestive system in a variety of ways. Cardamom is commonly used to help soothe occasional stomach discomfort. Its distinct scent can promote a positive mood. Cardamom also has profound effects on the respiratory system due to its high 1,8-cineole content, which promotes clear breathing and respiratory health. Native to Southeast Asia, Cardamom is added to traditional Indian sweets and teas for its cool, minty aroma and flavor. Cardamom essential oil is extracted from Cardamom seeds grown in Guatemala. Through a collaborative and responsible sourcing arrangement, we are able to have a significant impact on the lives of local partners, ensuring that these farming communities enjoy improved livelihoods.

Cardamom ✧ The Oil of Objectivity
Cardamom helps individuals to regain objectivity, mental sobriety and self-control. It assists individuals who frequently feel frustrated or angry with other people. Cardamom is especially helpful for times when one’s anger goes to their head causing them to become “hot-headed.” In such situations, the individual becomes inebriated with anger, losing control and rational function. Cardamom helps to bring balance, mental clarity and objectivity during moments of extreme anger and frustration.

Cardamom is especially beneficial for individuals with a long history of anger or aggression, which often becomes directed outward. It is helpful for those who hyper-focus on their problems, especially their frustrations. Cardamom assists individuals to break down or “digest” these intense emotions of frustration and anger, by redirecting energy to the solar plexus, the center of responsibility. In this way Cardamom helps individuals let go of emotional distortions which cause them to objectify other people and see them as inconveniences.

Cardamom demands that individuals stop blaming others. It asks them to take personal ownership and responsibility for their feelings. As they do they will feel more at peace, calm and in control of themselves.

Negative Emotions: Inebriated by anger, easily frustrated, objectifying others, blaming, unable to think clearly
