Product Overview

Our organic Cardamom CO2 total extract, deep yellow in color, has a rich, spicy-sweet, warm, highly aromatic, slightly cineolic aroma with a balsamic-woody, increasingly sweet drydown. The extreme tenacity and complex aroma of this CO2 extract captures the organoleptic virtues of freshly crushed Cardamom even more completely than does the steam distilled essential oil of Cardamom.

A member of the Ginger family, Cardamom is one of the oldest essential oils known in perfumery. Presently, it is used extensively in cosmetics and perfumery to add a warm, fresh, and invigorating quality. According to Ayurveda, Cardamom enlivens the heart and refreshes the senses.[1] With a lively array of oxides and ester molecules, it is well suited for massage blends, chest rubs, and other aromatherapy and perfumery applications.

We find that the CO2 extracts of the spice oils are preferable in aroma to the more commonly available steam distilled versions and are especially well suited for natural perfumery purposes. Their energetic and vibrant aroma is true to that of the fresh plant material. We use Cardamom CO2 in our Patchouli Amber Spice to give it an added lift – it is one of our very favorite spice oils for use in perfume compositions!
