The cardamom seed carries a beautiful and distinct scent and is a close relative to ginger. Some of its charming benefits are:
* soothes stomach discomfort
* helps maintain gastrointestinal health
* promotes clear breathing and respiratory health
* gives relief from muscle and respiratory spasms
* is an antiseptic and disinfecting agent
* stimulates the secretion of enzymes and hormones
Use this soothing oil in your diffuser with a bit of wild orange to keep your lungs clean and strong, add it to your cleaning regiment to insure your house is naturally disinfected or create a topical blend (recipe below) to help calm sore muscles and sooth an upset stomach.
topical cardamom soothing blend
4 drops cardamom essential oil
1 drop peppermint essential oil
3 drops lavender essential oil
fractionated coconut oil
Place essential oils and fractionated coconut oil into a small glass roller. Shake to combine. Roll onto bottoms of feet, stomach, or sore muscles.
Always use a high quality essential oil you know and trust. It is always safe to do a small skin test with any essential oils that are new to you, also be extra careful with them around children and use the smallest amounts and only child safe oils (lavender, chamomile, are a few), use as little as possible, they are very, very concentrated, do your research if you are pregnant or nursing to keep everyone safe.
