Cardamom is a spice from the seeds of plants in the genera Elettaria in the family Zingiberaceae native to India. They are recognized by their small seed pods, triangular in cross-section and spindle-shaped, with a thin, papery outer shell and small black seeds.
This oil has the aroma of freshly dried cardamom pods, far superior to the comparatively flat steam distilled variety. This CO2 is a deep yellow, rich and viscous oil, primarily of a middle note. The aroma is spicy, fruity, warm and wonderfully rich and complex, seeming to appeal to those who found no particular oil's aroma very wondrous before.
