Cardamom Essential Oil

Cardamom essential oil has a warm, spice-like scent with a slightly penetrating camphoraceous odor. It is an almost colorless or pale yellow liquid which darkens when exposed to sunlight. The oil is steam distilled from a perennnial herb.

Why Auroma 100% pure and natural Cardamom Essential Oil from The Aromatherapy Place: Some dishonest Companies combine botanical species to create a cheaper version of an essential oil. As an example, the most common Lavender type comes from Lavadula angustifolia. There is also a cheaper version which comes from Lavandula X intermedia. The two oils are combined, unbeknownst to you, resulting in a cheaper version of Lavender. Auroma guarantees the botanical species origin for each essential oil through testing and analysis, and states it on their product label, so quality and origin are always assured.
