descriptionNOTE: Large quantities/sizes of any product may have to be special ordered. If that's the case, customers must allow a minimum of 10 business days for a new supply to arrive at our warehouse. Some products could arrive sooner, some later. Cancellations are not allowed because an item becomes 'out of stock' soon after the customer places the order, the 'out of stock' product will ship as soon as it arrives at our warehouse. What do we consider large quantities/sizes of our products? Some examples are products classified as bulk or that include the word 'bulk' in the product's name, products offered in 5+ lbs., expensive EO's offered in 1+ lb. and certain quantities of packaging materials. If it's important for you to know before placing an order if a certain quantity's in stock, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and inquire before placing the order. The nature of our business is such that what is in stock in the morning may not be in stock in the afternoon. All products are subject to prior sale.
NOTE: If we unexpectedly encounter a problem with the packaging material used to pack the product you ordered (defective/missing part or delivery to us delayed for any reason including road/weather conditions or the manufacturer has a manufacturing delay, etc.) we cannot ship until the correct packaging part/material is delivered to us. Please understand this and do not place an order if this paragraph presents a problem for you. In 20 years in business we've only had one instance where delivery to us of empty 35 lb. pails/lids was delayed a couple of days. (Rev. 6/19/18)
Its aroma is distinctively spicy, fruity, warm and balsamic. Its properties indicate it is good for the stomach (settles it), eases gas pains and nausea, digestive, neuro-muscular, antispasmodic, expectorant, and warming. Good inhaled for the bronchial system; assists in stimulating the lungs, expelling phlegm and can be used for easing coughs and bronchitis. It is also used as an aphrodisiac mixture.

I almost passed this one up
Cardamom is one of those spices where, in my experience, a little too much can kill a dish. I was hesitant to buy this EO as I could not imagine how to manage its use in cooking let alone aromatherapy. Wow, what a great EO! This is something else! Not the same experience as the spice, this is sweet and mellow, you can't get enough. A very nice Fall note to blend with orange, cinnamon and clove.

This oil is fantastic in a spice blend. It is pricey but you only need to add a little in a blend to enjoy this unique smelling oil.BTW, I've seen the price for this oil on other websites and Camden Grey's was the best. Quality at a fair price

Exotic and intoxicating!
Wow, I just ordered a small sample of cardamom and wish I would have ordered a big bottle. This smells exotic and so unique, I can not wait to play around and devolop a signature blend using this.

This cardamom oil smells fantastic, and they offer smaller amounts so that I could try out something new without feeling guilty. So far my favorite smelling oil.

This oil is a little pricey, but worth every penny! It smells wonderful and it was very helpful in a lotion I made for a friend undergoing Blue Light Therapy for skin cancer. It helped them tremendously with the burning sensations they experienced from these treatments. So needless to say he was thrilled & so am I!
OUT OF STOCK ISSUES: If a customer orders a large quantity of a product and all of the product is not in stock when the order is entered into our system, once the new stock arrives we will ship separately whatever quantity we may owe the customer. Most of our restocking orders arrive at our warehouse 5-7 business days after we place a restocking order, sometimes sooner. Should the distiller or vendor inform us restocking will take longer than 7 business days, we’ll promptly notify the customer.
Please note that we do not allow order cancellations for any reason and we don’t allow removal/cancellations of products which become partially or completely out of stock after the customer places an order.
