  • Multipurpose oil for anything concerning digestion: impressive!
  • Freshens the breath 
  • Fresh, fruity, flowery, lemony, similar to pepper without being hot. The exact same smell as the spice. 
Cardamom belongs to the same family as ginger, zedoary, curcuma. It grows in the shade of some trees it particularly likes (not all of them though...). And yet it requires a lot of sun: shade and sun. Cultivating cardamom in tree-lined alleys, harvesting its tiny fruits, all this requires a lot of attention and time. Oh no, this is not an expensive oil!
Its stems rise from an underground plump rhizome like its famous brother: ginger. Firstly, a few leaves above ground level, then long leaves with a special feature: they are ribbed in two directions: parallel to the deep central rib and small streaks like those on a vinyl record. Blossoms are most strange: they look like elves with petals like curved flames from a bud that grows in the shape of a cone.
Hippocrates, the Greek father of medicine, wrote texts about using cardamom as a healer for many ailments. He had already added a lot of Ayurvedic elements to the pre-European medicine of that time - Ayurvedic texts in which cardamom was already mentioned, are over three thousand years old. The Arab caravans first brought the plant in European countries as a perfume. The Egyptians benefitted from this traffic, and used it as substrate in religious ceremonies.
Turkey (geographically midway) reminds us that it is the natural antidote to coffee. Similarly, Iranians use it with tea. Let's continue our journey towards the East and make fun of English mountaineers who wanted to climb the Himalayas after colonising India. Many of them got strokes during such a gigantic physical effort, until they accepted to listen to the local wise men’s pieces of advice. They then started chewing cardamom every time their heart struggled to understand the reason why they would want to conquer the mountains so badly.
