Origin: a Latin derivative
meaning "Gift of the Earth."
Ginger essential oil is derived from the fresh rhizome of the ginger plant, sourced in Madagascar. Ginger oil has a hot, spicy flavour that can take the place of whole ginger in recipes or add a warm, sweet taste when added to your favourite herbal tea. Ginger essential oil can also be applied topically or inhaled for a soothing aroma.
Why should I add Ginger oil to my collection? The main chemical constituent of Ginger essential oil is zingiberene, giving Ginger its renowned, spicy flavour and making it a popular ingredient in many Asian dishes. When inhaled, the energizing aroma of Ginger oil can help provide moments of calm during car rides or long periods of time in motion. Ginger oil also produces a warm, soothing aroma when diffused or during a personal massage.
Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
Internal use: Dilute one drop in 120 mL of liquid.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with a carrier oil to minimize any skin sensitivity.
Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas.
