Cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum) Essential oil
Having a blog food blog and a love for cooking shows has broadened my taste buds and expanded the ingredients in my pantry. A few years ago I started experimenting with spices. I'd toss new spices in my cart while grocery shopping, not knowing how I would use them. It was at this time that I discovered Cardamom. At first I bought the whole seed pods and then I bought a bottle of it ground. It has a very warm smell and flavor and I discovered I loved it. I use it in my Ras el hanout and my ginger bread spice mixes, as well as other recipes. So when I saw Young Living had it as an Essential oil I had to put it on my next order.
This oil is amazing and now one of my go-to oils to diffuse during the day. It's aroma is uplifting, refreshing and invigorating. It's warm, spicy, and exotic. I love using a drop of cardamom vitality in my bullet proof lattes in the morning, it helps support digestive wellness and tastes amazing.
