Cardamom I love you, I do. It's not just because you did that crazy erotic thing once, and not just because you've helped spice up love life, but you can heal so many common ailments, carminative/digesting agent, remover of mucus, clear the orifices of the head, respiratory healer, greatly relieve coughs, reduce cold symptoms, asthma healer, IBS healer, help heal heartburn, bring vibrancy to skin, bring excess vata dosha or air element downward, help manage weight, relieve tooth pain and help in dental decay, open the spiritual heart, AND a euphoric aphrodisiac, that reminds me.....

There's a story, its about a bit of cardamom essential oil, a husband and wife, kids sleeping, and an opportunity posed by the deep aroma of cardamom essential oil that brought about ancient exotic waves of euphoria, some time and space shifting and great pleasure all induced by intentional deep breaths through one nostril and then the other of cardamom through its essential oil bottle.

Ok so some other cardamom ideas for use:  put cardamom pods in a mortar and pestle and grind, or have cardamom powder, cardamom essential oil can be used, close your eyes, deeply inhale, take in its scent. Observe how you feel.

A simple drink: Put 1/2 tsp cardamom powder in warmed milk of choice. Whisk well, enjoy, dab of syrup added if desired.

Shukra dhatu and ojas rejuvenative drink! Shukra dhatu is our reproductive channels, and ojas is sort of like our reserve energy and the shukra layer of our body helps the health of the rest of our channels while ojas is a container for our prana our life force/energy and tejas our fire/drive.

1 cup water
5 Dates 
1 Banana 
1/2 cup almonds plus 1-2 cups additional water or 2 cups almond milk (homemade see below)
1/2 tsp cardamom powder 

1 cup water covering about 5 pitted dates, soak overnight or a few hours (ok I soak for 20 minutes sometimes, and some dates are super soft)
Add to blender with 1 banana, almond milk (homemade: 1 cup almonds with 3 cups water, blend well, strain through a nut bag)
Or almonds plus more water

Blend well, vitamix does the trick, 
sit down and drink to rejuvenate your deeper layers and add an inner luster that will radiate outward. 
Optional idea for fall and early winter before blending you can add 1/4 tsp ginger powder and some kale, might omit the kale in this way and cook it well with spices in a separate dish instead if you have existing vata digesting tendencies (flatulence, bloating, unsettled stomach).

Go ahead, experience cardamom today, it’s balancing in many ways, a little goes a a long way, it might be the spice you've been missing.

This is the first time that I have heard of Cardamom and I must say that I am amazed with the fact that it has lots of benefits most especially for couples out there. I don't think that this is something I can use as of now, but it is still nice to know about these things. And of course, since I do have friends who might need something like this in the future, at least, I now have some ideas that I can share to them. I am so glad that I was able to find this site and this helpful information.

Cradamom is very useful specially for those who have heart and kidney issues. Because it can maintain the oxygen and water level in your body.

It is additionally useful for boosting stomach related wellbeing. The cooling impacts of cardamom, in spite of being a zest, can help in easing acridity.

Albeit a significant number of its medical advantages need further investigation, cardamom is ok for the vast majority to take in moderate sums.
