Cardamom Rose Delights: An Ayurvedic Treat for Healthy Holidays

To me, Cardamom is love and light in a pod.

It is beauty and wisdom, a spice that knows just what we need physically, while inspiring us emotionally. Cardamom is the journeyer’s companion, exotic and warm. It’s a sensual spark to the Yogi’s inner flame. It is an excellent partner for the holidays, and in this recipe below will help you celebrate the season without losing your balance.
