Known as the “queen of spices”, the cardamom seed has been sharing its rich, warming, spicy aroma for millennia. Cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum) essential oil brings that well-loved aroma to body care blends, perfumes, colognes and air fresheners. It can also be used as a milder alternative to other camphoraceous oils in chest balms or breath diffusions.
Aura Cacia Organic Cardamom Essential Oil is sourced from a farmer cooperative in Guatemala. The seeds and pods are dried, then steam distilled to obtain the ideal essential oil.

Organic essential oils differ from conventional oils in that the botanicals from which they are derived are grown according to the USDA’s Organic Standards. Aura Cacias manufacturing facility and all of their organic essential oils have also been certified organic by the established third-party certifier, Quality Assurance International (QAI).
