CARDAMOM

Updated: Jan 27



Oh cardamom, how I love you. Such a beautiful tasting spice, the perfect addition to desserts, drinks and savoury meals too. ⁣

⁣But let me tell you about the amazing health benefits of this spice along with it’s gorgeous taste.

In Ayurveda, cardamom is seen as tri-doshic, working to pacify all doshas in the body. Used in the right amounts, cardamom is a wonderful digestive aid assisting to pacify bloating, intestinal gas and sluggishness, nausea or heaviness in the tummy. Please access the Tri-Spice Tea for Digestion here. It also fights off bad breath and cavities, just add a pod to some boiling water to make a tea. In addition, cardamom offsets the effect of the coffee caffeine hit in the body. Sprinkle a little in your coffee and your stomach will thank you for it. ⁣

Cardamom is used in Ayurvedic medicated oils and paste applications to treat a variety of skin conditions, especially where itching and oozing is concerned. It is a great spice to relieve congestion in the lungs and sinuses, making it a go-to remedy in this upcoming wet and woolly winter season. ⁣Please click here to see a Respiratory Relief Roll-On Blend for Kids using cardamom and other Ayurvedic essential oils.

With light and love,
