Ancient use of Cardamom:
In ancient Egypt, cardamom was used as a perfume and incense, as well as in cooking. The Egyptians believed that cardamom had aphrodisiac properties and used it in love potions. The Ebers Papyrus of Egypt chronicles the use of this in medicine, embalming, and magical practices at least 3600 years ago. In ancient Greece and Rome, cardamom was used as a perfume and as a cooking spice. The Romans also used it as a digestive aid and as a breath freshener. In ancient India, cardamom was used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat a variety of ailments, including digestive issues, respiratory problems, and infections. Cardamom is “tridoshic,” it helps balance all three doshas; vata, pitta, and kapha. It especially balances kapha, which governs the structure of the body and protects it. It was also used as a cooking spice in India and was believed to have aphrodisiac properties. It was used by Hindus in ceremonies to pay respect to the recently deceased. In the Middle Ages, cardamom was traded along the Silk Road and was highly valued as a medicinal and culinary spice. It was also used in perfumes and as a digestive aid. The Vikings found Cardamom in Constantinople and on caravan routes in the middle ages and brought it back to Scandinavia.
