You re a river which everybody loves and never dry despite drought.
You re a cardamon, cinnamon and cloves adding spices to my day.
You re a chestbox in the middle of the ocean in which there are treasures beyond measure and the splendor will last forever.
You re a queen in an anthill in which king and the workers serve.
You re my dream woman i believe its not only when i sleep that i dream of you.
You re a woman of substance and virtue which is every mans dream.
Be Mine please.
The odor of cardamom is warm-spicy, aromatic, at first penetrating camphoraceous-cineole-like, or somewhat medicinal, reminscent of eucalyptus. Later it becomes balsamic-woody, increasingly sweet, and almost floral on the dryout. The odor is extremely tenacious with a dilightful, warm spiciness and balsamic floral undertone. He goes on to say the main constituents are synthetically produced at a fraction of the cost of cardamom but what is easily inferred is that they are but a pallid and sad imitation. He continues by saying the flavor of cardamom oil is rich-aromatic, warm and spicy, somewhat burning or pungent at high concentration and faintly bitter unless well diluted. Then he talks quite rapturiously about cooking for some time, and this is worth reading, so to get your hands in this essential book of Arctander. Perfume and Flavors of Natural Origin
He continues: in perfumery, the oil not only imparts spiciness, but also a warm sweet note which fits into floral bases such as muguet and rose. Cardamom oil blends well with bergamot, frankincense, ylang-ylang, labdanum, neroli, cedarwood, and coriander oil, which he says is a great modifier for cardamom, in both flavor and fragrance.
His cardamom entry finishes with this:
The annual world production of cardamom oil seems to adjust itself to the demand. The oil is comparatively expensive, but this is not due to scarcity of raw material.
Cardamom is most known for its actions on the digestive system-colic, cramps, dyspepsia and flatulence.
He notes its use on the nervous system as a gentle tonic, recommended for nervous exhaustion and depression
