Cardamom Description and Uses:
The warm, spicy fragrance of cardamom essential oil has been enjoyed since the time of the ancient Egyptians, when it was used as a perfume and incense.

Cardamom oil has an energizing, bright aroma and can be used to help refresh and lift one's spirits when feeling apathetic or unable to move forward.
