Plant description

Latin Name : Elettaria cardamomum
English Name : Cardamom
French Name : Cardamome
Family : Zingiberaceae
Origin : Guatemala

History and Origin

Cardamom got its name from the Latin word cardamomum, also derived from the Greek word kardámômon most likely appeared around the 4th century before Christ when Alexander the Great came back from its Oriental conquests. Before becoming a gourmet’s delight, the "angel seed" has long been a divine intermediary. In India and Pakistan, cardamom seeds are still offered to gods during religious celebrations. It is of course well known and used for its aphrodisiac virtues. It grows wild in forests at an altitude of 800 to 1500 meters. Its privileged habitat is South-West India but other varieties grow in Guatemala and El Salvador.

Aromatherapy Data Sheet

Extraction : Steam distillation
pH : 4.5
Aroma and taste : Quite a strong odor, sweet and full of aromatic subtleties, just like the freshly ground seedpod. The flavor undiluted is strong and sweet but not overpowering, a common trait among the seed hydrosols, which tend to be more delicate. Diluted, it is quite lovely, and it is exceptional combined with cinnamon hydrosol.
Stability and Shelf Life : Unknown. At least one year.

Properties and Applications

Quickly calms spasms and bloat in the digestive tract, as one would expect. It also appears to be mildly sedative or at least very relaxing and with a little honey makes a wonderful bedtime tea. We have been reliably informed that it has distinct aphrodisiac properties, which makes it extra good as a bedtime tea!  A delightful ingredient in both savory and sweet dishes; the flavor is very bright and will not overpower other ingredients.
