What is Cardamom essential oil good for?
Beyond being used for cooking the fragrant seeds used to create the essential oil are said to have both calming and soothing benefits.

The scent is often described as sweet and spicy with a hit of a woody undertone.
What are essential oils?
Essential oils are natural oils extracted from plants. The oils capture the essence of the plants. They’re often processed through distillation or cold pressing.
How do essential oils work?
Inhaling the aromas of the oils is said to stimulate responses in the limbic system in your brain. The limbic system is concerned with your regulation of your sense of smell, long term memory, emotions and circadian rhythms. Different sections of the limbic system work in different ways.
When you diffuse essential oils and you inhale them this sends a message to your olfactory bulb in your limbic system that in turn effects hormones that regulate things such as your ability to sleep and your stress levels to name a few.
