A perennial herb, cardamom can be identified by its large leaves and seeds, green and white flowers, and slightly bitter but edible fruits. It is farmed only in a few places around the world, such as Sri Lanka, Laos, China, Nepal, Guatemala, and India. Cardamom seeds contain important minerals like sulfur, calcium, and phosphorus. This herb is considered a dipana, as it aids in proper digestion. Cardamom also has antiseptic, antioxidant and cleansing properties which are beneficial for the skin. It works as a facial toner to help keep the skin radiant. Emotionally, cardamom is grounding and soothing.
