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!

Powerful and true


I was introduced to cardamom via my enjoyment of Indian cooking. While I have always loved it as an ingredient in food I wasn't prepared for the delight of this Co2 extract. I prepare my own perfume and this adds an extra dimension to my blends. Bright, inviting, like a trip to Madhya Pradesh, and just like the freshly crushed spice. Friends and family who are unfamiliar with the spice are intrigued by the perfumes in which it is included. Hedonic aromatherapy calls this out to me as energetic and grounded simultaneously...a spiritual equivalent of a freshly-lit fire.

If you love cardamom.


This has a lifelike aroma of cardamom. Happiness guaranteed.

Review by Cananga odorata 4/6/2016

Happy and exotic!


I had never smelled cardamom before. In an Indian movie I saw, though, the man told his girlfriend that he loved her perfume. She laughed and said that she didn't wear perfume; she lived next door to a cardamom grinder, and the smell of it got into all their clothes. So, I had to try it, and now I love it, too! It is so bright and spicy and unique. I put it on and it makes me love myself!

It really smells exactly like fresh, delicious cardamom. I was thinking about using it for blending, but it's too beautiful not to use alone.
