Product Description
GINGER - Zingiber oficinale

A warm, spicy, and energizing, ginger oil comes from ginger root (Zingiber officinale), a pungent, peculiar-looking underground rhizome. Ginger has been valued for thousands of years for its medicinal and culinary properties, particularly in ancient Chinese, Indian, and Greek civilizations. In Ayurvedic medicine, ginger is considered a key plant.

The benefits of ginger for relieving pain are widely known today, and while I prefer using fresh ginger (eaten raw, grated into your vegetable juice, or steeped into tea), using ginger oil can provide these wholesome benefits as well. When used topically, ginger oil can help relieve aches and pain, as well as promote normal blood circulation.

Aromatherapists also value ginger oil's soothing and warming qualities to help address digestive problems. In fact, this is one of ginger oil's most popular uses: relieving any kind of digestive upset, such as nausea, indigestion, diarrhea, gas, and even morning sickness.

Here are some ways to use ginger oil for various health problems:

•Apply two to three drops in a diffuser, or place on a cotton ball or your handkerchief, and then inhale. This will help reenergize and revitalize your body, mind, and soul.

•Mix two to three drops in an ounce of carrier oil, and use as a massage oil. This helps relieve backache, arthritis, muscle pain, rheumatism, and fractures, as well as stimulate your circulatory system and revitalize your libido.

You can also add it to your hot bath or put a few drops on a hot or cold compress, and then apply it to the affected areas.

•Inhale via a diffuser or vaporizer to relieve sinusitis, sore throat, and runny nose. It can also work as a decongestant.

•Massage a drop into your abdomen to relieve gas and diarrhea.

The ginger plant has a long history. Ginger's current name comes from the Middle English gingivere, but ginger dates back over 3,000 years to the Sanskrit srngaveram meaning "horn root" with reference to its appearance. In Greek it was ziggiberis, and in Latin, zinziberi. Although the origins of ginger are uncertain, ginger has a long history of use in South Asia, both in dried and fresh form.

Ginger oil is well suited to help ease colds and flu, nausea, motion sickness, morning sickness, muscle aches and pains, as well as poor circulation and arthritic pain. Its warming qualities are good to use for feelings of loneliness and winter depression, and its energizing properties make it a good aphrodisiac.

In vapor therapy, it can be used in an oil burner to help relieve catarrh, lethargy, nausea, colds, flu, feeling of loneliness and loss of libido.

In a blended massage oil or diluted in the bath, it can be used for arthritis, rheumatism, lethargy, nausea, colds and flu, muscle aches, poor circulation and digestive upsets.

Blended in base cream as a part of a cream or lotion it can be used for arthritis, muscle aches, rheumatism, and also to help with poor circulation and to disperse bruises. When used with hot compresses, ginger oil can be used for arthritis, rheumatism, muscle aches and digestive upsets.

A few drops on a handkerchief can be used for nausea, morning sickness, indigestion, colds and flu and travel sickness

Ginger is a natural antiviral herb. It's medicinal uses include - anti-clotting (those with hyper tension will do well when they eat cubed gingers like candies, as it is great in enhancing the circulation of blood), flu prevention, anti common cold, to relieve headache, reduce fatigue, prevent and cure of rheumatism and controlling poor dietary habits, for sore throats, for prevention of motion and morning sicknesses, and as a dietary supplement. It is also a mild stimulant and tonic when taken as a drink. In Wicca, Paganism and magick, ginger is associated with the masculine gender, the fire element and the deities Aphrodite and Isis. It is used in spells involving legal matters, money/ wealth, love, lust, enhancing magickal powers, energy boosts and courage. Try this: as you put ginger in your cooking - visualize your wealth (lust or energy etc) increasing.
