Our Cardamom CO2 exhibits a fabulously rich, complex sweet and spicy aroma. It smells of the freshly crushed cardamom seeds. We think our Cardamom CO2 is far superior to steam distilled Cardamom essential oil that tends to be a comparatively flat aroma and duller color. This exotic treat is derived from the whole fruit of high quality, organically grown Guatemalan Cardamom.
Cardamom is known as an aphrodisiac, and is used extensively in cosmetics and perfumery to add a warm, fresh, and stimulating quality. In perfumery it imparts both spiciness and a warm sweet middle note to floral and oriental bases, chypres and powdery perfumes. It blends well with other spice oils, bergamot, citrus, ylang ylang, labdanum, neroli and rose. This Cardamom CO2 extract is one of our favorites for essential oil blending!
