Black Cardamom is taken from the fragrant seeds of the perennial herbaceous plant Amomum sublatum, also known as Greater Cardamom.

The dark brown/black dried outer seed pod covers the aromatic seeds inside.

The seeds are small, dark brown/black in colour and have an intense, complex aroma and it is these seeds from which the rare and precious Black Cardamom Essential Oil is taken.

Black Cardamom has a most impressive anti-oxidant index.

When used regularly in skincare preparations it helps scavange free-radicals, which in turn help keep the skin look youthful, healthy and fresh.

It helps support gastrointestinal health - easing indigestion, nausea and digestive conditions.

When used as a part of hands on massage it helps ease the pain of arthritic joints, and as it is a useful anti-inflammatory it helps reduce inflammation and muscular aches and soreness.

When burnt, it creates a beautiful, uplifing ambience in a room - it is refreshing to the mind and body, stimulating and invigorating, and helps aid mental clarity and focus.

It encourages positivity and has a cosy and warming aroma that is blissful luxury.

Used in an aromatic bath, it is hard to beat for its all-encompassing and delicious aroma.
