Despite its strong and pungent fragrance, Cardamom essential oil is a non-toxic and gentle oil, that is at once mysterious and exotic. Cardamom essential oil’s effect on neurotransmitters is very much like pharmaceutical antiemetics, which makes it very effective against nausea and vomiting associated with pregnancy and chemotherapy. The relaxant effects of cardamom essential oil come from its mild local anesthetic action, which makes the oil very useful in the management of strong intestinal cramps, common cold, and bronchial ailments.
