Clarity of mind
The aroma is noted for its uplifting qualities that can bring calm and clarity. Gabriel Mojay in 'Aromatherapy for Healing the Spirit' says, "Psychologically...cardamom is indicated for problems associated with the Earth Element: for poor concentration, overthinking, and worry - especially where there is a degree of nervous exhaustion."
Cardamom oil may relieve spasm, making it possibly beneficial for colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, indigestion and cramps. It may be of benefit where the digestive system is affected by nervous tension.
It can also relieve nausea and may be useful for morning sickness in pregnancy for some mothers-to-be.
Overall Scent: Cardamom oil has a nice, warm, woody aroma that is sweet and spicy.
