Cardamom Essential Oil is a favorite diffuser oil for me when I need extra respiratory support.  I’ve tried it topically and just do not get the same results.  It’s also considered a digestive aid and goes wonderfully in an after dinner tea or coffee (one drop brewed through an entire pot — put it in the filter with the coffee or tea, not per cup).  Because it isn’t overly energizing, I tend to diffuse Cardamom Essential Oil at night when I need it’s respiratory support.

With our pre-diluted oils . . . if diluted for kids is the highest dilution you see, it’s also the max dilution possible. Pre-diluted oils are in jojoba.

Cardamom Essential Oil Safety Info

According to Tisserand and Young, oils high in 1,8 cineole content, like cardamon essential oil, may cause Central Nervous System problems and breathing problems in young children. Oils high in 1,8 cineole should not be used on or near the face of infants and children.  Cardamom essential oil should still follow the safety guidelines below. ~ Source:  Tisserand, Robert and Young, Rodney. Essential Oil Safety: A Guide for Health Care Professionals: Churchill Livingstone; 2 edition (2013). Reading the full profile for Cardamom essential oil is highly suggested by your DeRu Staff.

While we’ve made this clear that we are selling this essential oil to use in your diffuser, your inhaler, or topically (diluted), it is a pure essential oil and can be used as such.  With all essential oils:

  • Never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes (this includes mouth, ear canals, noses, genital regions as well as internal areas).  The strength of essential oils can easily damage these soft tissue areas.
  • Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner.
    Keep away from children.
  • If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).

  • Oral Safety is only given because many people have been told to take oils internally.  Because several people look to us for safety advice, we feel obligated to offer those safety statements, although we do not believe anyone should be ingesting essential oils without being guided by an expert.  Experts will take your medical history into account before they suggest oils for you to ingest, diffuse, or use topically.
