Cardamom Essential Oil
Fresh, spicy, warm, and sweet, cardamom essential oil is a good friend to the belly. Historical records show cardamom being used for digestive support for centuries. One reason it’s so comforting is that the oil’s stimulating effect seems to bring energy wherever it’s applied, creating movement and warmth. This makes cardamom a welcome addition to cold-weather blends, too! (Try it for opening your breath after the sniffles.) On an emotional level, aromatherapists use cardamom to calm the busy mind and ease over thinking.
