Love this oil!
I love the Cardamom oil. I feel like whenever I diffuse it, my air is clean & the aroma is heaven. I usually diffuse it with orange, clove, cinnamon & ginger for a fresh, fall aroma!

Can I take this internally? Like for making chai spice blend for tea?
A shopper on Feb 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Essential oils are very potent and can be dangerous if not used correctly. All of our oils are 100% pure, natural, and authentic. They are of the quality to be taken internally. However, we cannot provide dosing suggestions or directions on how to ingest if you choose to do so. If you do choose to ingest the oils, we suggest consulting an Aromatherapist or trusted health professional for guidance. Follow the link below for help finding an aromatherapist.

Thanks! -RMO Team

Can I use this safely if I'm breastfeeding? Can I diffuse this around my baby and child?
Gina B on Oct 8, 2018

When used properly, many essential oils can be regarded as safe for pregnant and nursing women when used topically or diffused, however, we always recommend talking with a trusted medical professional or aromatherapist before usage.

Here is our blog on essential oils and pregnancy. The information can also be applied to nursing moms.
