3 Tips for using Cardamom essential oil

In case you haven’t noticed the frenzy on social media with essential oils, it’s BOGO week! That means we are sharing select oils at 1/2 the cost for the entire week!  It’s the perfect time to join the growing global community and begin your path of natural health and wellness!   We LOVE free oils!!!

Today’s BOGO (Buy One, Get One free) features two delightfully herbaceous essential oils:  Cardamom and Cilantro.  Let’s explore the Cardamom together!

CARDAMOM

Native to the Indian subcontinent, this herb is now extensively cultivated in Guatemala, thanks to a German coffee planter who brought it there over 100 years ago!  With its spicy, warm, and inviting aroma, Cardamom is no stranger to coffee houses and bakeries around the world!  Interestingly, cardamom is the third most expensive spice by weight worldwide, surpassed only by vanilla and saffron!

Top Uses for Cardamom

  • respiratory support – when irritations occur, or seasonal threats become a bother, add 6-8 drops of cardamom to diffuser for aromatic benefits, or rub a few drops directly over the chest with fractionated coconut oil.
  • easing digestive discomforts– apply 2-3 drops directly over abdomen to ease occasional stomach pain or to reduce nervous feelings and tension.
  • bad breath – add 1-2 drops to 4 oz of water and use as a mouthwash!
  • culinary applications– add a toothpick swirl to breads, cookies, or sauces!

Due to its natural ability to soothe, relax, and open airways, cardamom essential oil is a key ingredient in dōTERRA Breathe respiratory blend and Breathe lozenges.   Seriously, if you have not tried these when feeling under the weather, you are doing yourself a massive disservice!  Way better than traditional cough drops!

CO-IMPACT SOURCING of CARDAMOM

What I love most about cardamom is dōTERRA’s commitment to combining sourcing with social responsibility.   dōTERRA deliberately chooses sourcing locations where there is an opportunity to improve individual, social, economic, and environmental well-being, while at the same time, sourcing the world’s finest essential oils.   Location, distillation practices, climate, and time of harvesting all play a role in producing essential oils with maximum potency and the targeted chemistry for our bodies.

Check out this incredible video taken in Guatemala featuring the harvesters of cardamom and highlighting the importance of Co-Impact sourcing as it relates to the long-term partnerships between growers and distillers!

 

This Co-Impact Sourcing initiative is one of the driving forces behind my passion for dōTERRA and sharing essential oils with the world!  Imagine for a moment, that every time we crack open a bottle of these gorgeous aromatic compounds, we not only derive natural health and wellness benefits, but we help bless families around the world living in poverty through job creation, and the promotion of community development initiatives!

Essential Oils for Happy & Healthy Hearts

Stand In Love Jen Healthy Heart essential oils

Essential oils are precious natural gifts given to us for physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits.   I like to think of them as pure and potent aromatic kisses in a bottle!

Let’s appreciate our amazing hearts for just a minute!  Our heart is the workhorse of our cardiovascular system, pumping blood to organs, tissues, and trillions of cells in our body.   Now that is a tough job!  Even more astounding is the fact that if we lined up all the vessels in our cardiovascular system end to end, they would extend for about 60,000 miles, which is far enough to circle the planet more than 2 times!

In honor of heart health awareness month, I invite you to learn about a few of my favorite essential oils that promote feelings of relaxation and reduced stress in our busy lives.  The combined benefits of reduced stress along with balanced diet, exercise, and a reduction in our toxic load is great for our hearts and overall vitality!

Cypress

This gorgeous conifer essential oil sourced from the branches of tall evergreen trees has been known to promote proper circulation and blood flow throughout the body*.   I love to use a homemade blend I call no more veins to help promote blood flow and reduce the appearance of spider and varicose veins.  (tip: it’s good for men too!)

Uses:

  • Prior to a long run, apply to feet and legs for an energizing boost.
  • Apply two to three drops to chest before gardening to promote vitality and energy.
  • Diffuse with Lime essential oil for an invigorating scent.
  • Mix together Cypress and Grapefruit essential oil with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil for an invigorating massage.
  • Add one to two drops to toner to help improve the appearance of oily skin.

Ylang Ylang

Ylang Ylang essential oil is derived from the star-shaped flowers of the tropical Ylang Ylang tree and is used extensively in making perfumes and in aromatherapy.  In aromatherapy, Ylang Ylang is used to lessen tension and stress and to promote a positive outlook, and we know that reduced tension and stress helps keep our hearts healthy!

Uses:

  • Put Ylang Ylang into an Epsom Salt bath for relaxation.
  • Refresh your skin with an aromatherapy steam facial using Ylang Ylang essential oil.
  • Put on your wrists for a sweet, floral perfume.
  • Add Ylang Ylang to Fractionated Coconut Oil for a deep hair conditioner.
  • Take internally for antioxidant support.*

Bergamot

Oh Bergamot, I love you so!  This gorgeous citrus plant grown in Italy is known emotionally as the Oil of self-acceptance.  It’s cleansing aroma combines a little bit of citrus, spice, and a hint of floral.  The name Bergamot is derived from the town Bergamo, in Lombardy, Italy where it is extensively cultivated.   I use this oil when doubts creep into my heart and I need to excavate limiting beliefs.  Try rubbing a couple of drops directly on your chest over your heart and take a deep breath of gratitude for all your heart does for you every day.  This oil has the powerful ability to turn our awareness to positive, hopeful thoughts.

Uses

  • Diffuse in the classroom, at work, or at home when stress levels or tension is high.
  • Apply to the skin while showering and inhale deeply to experience its calming aroma while enjoying its purifying skin benefits.
  • Change regular tea to Earl Grey with the addition of Bergamot.
  • Apply to the feet before bedtime or use with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil for a calming and relaxing massage.

Passion- Inspiring Blend

This blend is simply irresistible! A blend of cardamom seed, cinnamon bark, ginger, clove bud, sandalwood, jasmine flower absolute, and vanilla bean absolute makes Passion one of my go-to oils when my heart needs a boost of excitement!  This oil is great for rekindling romance and helps you recover your long-lost mojo to try that next big something new in life!  Try it for yourself, you won’t be disappointed!

Uses

  • Diffuse in the morning to start the day feeling energized and enthusiastic.
  • Apply to pulse points and heart throughout the day to feel inspired and passionate.
  • Diffuse at work to spark creativity, clarity, and wonder.
