Cardamom Seed- The Versatile Aromatic Spice

Cardamom seeds are normally associated with cooking but this versatile seed has many other uses. This is one of the most expensive oils in the world (Saffron & Vanilla are the most expensive) and it is produced by steam distillation. Cardamom oil has been used through history to soothe overindulged stomachs by the Romans, and as perfume and incense by the Egyptians. The cardamom seed oil comes from two plants: Ellataria and Amomum. The Ellataria is known as the green or true cardamom whilst the Amomum is know as Java Cardamom. So why have we used it in our Cardamom & Lime soap?. Cardamom seed oil can be used to promote healthy skin as it works as a natural cleanser and toner and combined with the zingy Lime oil makes a vibrant cleansing soap. Why not try some and awaken your senses?
