Sugar and Salt free Spice Blends - Vegan - No MSG - No Filler

Cardamom & Cloves

If you’ve ever gone in search of smoked saltfilé powder or Mexican oregano, you know fresh, high-quality herbs and spices can be hard to find. Friendly, expert advice can be just as scarce, since most grocers know relatively little about herbs and spices.

At Cardamom & Cloves, we aim to change all that. We’re Ottawa’s premier spice shop. We source a wide selection of the freshest, highest quality ingredients from around the world. Every herb, salt and spice in our shop and blends are ethically sourced. We support other small spice houses, local businesses and ingredients. We look for fairly traded, organic, and wild grown ingredients.

But we don’t just stock herbs and spices — we know a lot about them, their rich history, deep cultural significance, and range of applications. It’s knowledge we love to share, and one of the secrets to our outstanding customer service.


Flavour is highly subjective. Everyone has slightly different preferences. That’s why we’re delighted to offer options for personalizing your favourite blends. You can decide how hot you would like your Taco Seasoning or if you prefer Smoky Pickling Spice! Our blends are ground and made lovingly by hand when you place your order. No mixes contain filler of any kind, and only the ingredients on the label. Every blend is gluten free, sulphite free and vegan.
