Beyond its culinary uses, Ginger is widely recognized for its digestive benefits and its ability to alleviate occasional indigestion and nausea when consumed internally.

Process
Cardamom essential oil is steam-distilled from the small black seeds of the plant—usually sold to the spice market. The seed pod’s thin outer shell is green and papery. Pods are dried for about 36 hours before being sold as a spice or for distillation. After drying, the cardamom pods are only a fifth of their fresh weight. Cardamom grows well in India, but the booming local spice industry often prevents it from being exported. We source Cardamom essential oil from Guatemala and Honduras, which have similar climates. Cardamom is a newer crop to Honduras, offering significant additional income to banana and sugar cane farmers.
People
