HABITAT AND CULTIVATION
Cardamom is native to southern India and Sri Lanka, where it grows abundantly in forests at 2,500-5,000 ft (800-1,500 m) above sea level. Cardamom is also widely cultivated in India; southern Asia, Indonesia, and Guatemala. Cardamom is propagated from seed in autumn or by root division in spring and summer, and needs a shady position and rich and moist but well drained soil. The seedpods of cardamom are harvested just before they start to open in dry weather during the autumn and are dried whole in the sun.
Research in the 1960s showed that the volatile oil has a strong antispasmodic action, confirming cardamom's effectiveness in relieving gas and treating colic and cramps.
Cardamom contains volatile oil (borneol, camphor, pinene, humulene, caryophyllene, carvone, eucalyptole, terpinene, sabinene)
HOW MUCH TO TAKE
Infusion: pour a cup of boiling water onto 1 teaspoonful of the freshly crushed seeds and leave to infuse for 10-15 minutes. This should be drunk three times a day. If treating flatulence or loss of appetite, drink half an hour before meals.
COLLECTION AND HARVESTING
The seeds of cardamom are mainly obtained from commercial plants in Sri Lanka or Southern India where the crop is gathered between October and December.
