Cardamom Products

Cardamom originates from wild plants located in the Western Ghats in Southern India, growing in such abundance that this region became known as "Cardamom Hills". Considered one of the world's oldest spices, cardamom was used by the Ancient Egyptians for medicinal purposes, in rituals and for embalming. They used to chew cardamom pods to clean their teeth and to keep breath fresh. 

Cardamom is a unique spice in its diversity to flavour both sweet and savoury dishes. These fragrant and spicy pods have woody notes with a citrus like undertone - similar to ginger but without the sharpness. Cardamom is extensively used in curries, garam masala,chai and rice dishes and partners exceptionally well with ginger and turmeric (both being from the same family). Originally exported to Scandinavia by the Vikings, it remains a popular flavouring there for many recipes such as mulled wine and glogg, sweet pastry and bread dishes.

Using Aromatherapy in your daily routine is simple, easy and can be enormously beneficial. Pure neat essential oils can be evaporated into the environment and inhaled while products that have already been diluted in an oil can be applied straight to the skin. There are lots of different ways to utilize the pure neat essential oils; these can be made into a room spray or used in an an essential oil burner/ vaporizer.

This is a lovely way to perfume an environment and essential oils are very good at affecting the mood, mind and emotions when evaporated into the air. Adding essential oils to your bath is the best way to ensure the oils are absorbed through the pores of the skin while also inhaling the vapors; maximum benefit can then be had whilst enjoying a soak. Additionally the neat oils can be diluted into a carrier medium. This can be a cream, body butter, face cream, vegetable body oil and bath salts to name a few. For full instructions go to our How to use Aromatherapy page.

Cardamom essential oil can be used in the bath, or vaporized in an oil burner. It can be added to a massage oil or cream. Use 6-8 drops per bath and 10 -18 drops per 30ml of carrier oil. See Essential Oil Dosage Chart

Manufacture Process

Our essential oils are manufactured to GMP standards using steam distillation or cold pressing.

Indigo Herbs Cardamom Essential Oil is extracted using the "steam distillation" method. In this process the botanical material is placed in a still and steam is forced over the material. The hot steam helps to release the aromatic molecules from the plant material since the steam forces open the pockets in which the oils are kept. Molecules of the volatile oils then escape and evaporate into the steam. The temperature of the steam needs to be carefully controlled - just enough to force the plant material to let go of the essential oil, yet not too hot as to burn the plant material or the essential oil. The steam now containing the essential oil is passed through a cooling system to condense the steam which forms a liquid. The essential oil is then separated from the water and bottled, resulting in 100% pure essential oil.

Essential oils need to be diluted first; never apply an essential oil directly to the skin. Avoid contact with eyes and mouth.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

These cardamom pods can be used in cooking or crushed and utilized as an aid to digestion.

Serving:

Crush 1 teaspoon of seeds with a pestle and mortar, and then pour over 1 cup of boiling water, leave to infuse for 15 minutes, drink 3 times per day.

  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
  • Re-sealable air tight, foil pouch.
  • 100% pure botanical ingredients, absolutely nothing added.

Manufacture Process

Once the pods are ripe they are handpicked and winnowed to remove any dust or dirt particles. They are then washed and all the stalks removed before being dried to retain a moisture content of around 10%. The drying temperature is not set too high as this affects the taste and quality of the finished product. After the cardamom has been graded the pods are then made ready for shipping. Indigo Herbs Cardamom Pods are of the highest grade and make a great addition to the kitchen.

Very good reception
Very good reception. I have previously bought through amazon but this time I dealt directly with Indigo Herbs on the phone and customer service was great and pleasant experience. I particularly prefer Indigo Herbs as the herbs I bought even through amazon were organic and have worked well for me. I intend to post further reviews in the future when I have a bit more time to share more about personal benefits I have experienced when I would have used the herbs for longer than I have done so far.
