Cardamom spice has such a cozy smell, doesn't it? Often used in curries, chai, and Middle Eastern/Indian cuisine, cardamom brings a unique sweetness and ethnic flair to your plant-based recipes.
When I make Lentil Tikka Masala, I always add Cardamom essential oil, along with Turmeric and Black Pepper, to elevate its healing power. A close relative to ginger, cardamom can be added to recipes that call for ginger as well, as a nice support - both with internal benefit and with flavor. It also makes a yummy addition to baked goods with warming spices such as ginger, cinnamon, and clove.
Cardamom's top healing properties make it ideal for digestive, antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, decongestant, expectorant, tonic, stomachic, and carminative application.
When used for emotional balance, cardamom helps individuals to regain objectivity, mental sobriety, and self-control. It assists those who frequently feel frustrated or angry with other people, especially those times when anger goes to their head and control is lost.
Also helpful for those who hyperfocus on their problems, especially their frustrations. Cardamom assists in breaking down, or digesting, these emotions by redirecting energy to the solar plexus, which is the center of responsibility. Most notably, cardamom helps individuals let go of emotional distortions which cause them to objectify other people and see them as inconveniences.
