Get to know ginger oil
Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is that gorgeous, deliciously universal spice used in culinary delights across cultures. Whether in food, drink, or used as an essential oil, ginger has a very energetic and warming personality that many of us have come to love and adore!
This perennial herb with reed-like stems thrives in tropical climates with vibrantly colored flowers. Organically crafted ginger essential oil is produced using steam distillation from carefully harvested plant rhizomes. This oil has a gorgeous middle note aromatic profile that is very radiant, warm, and spicy!
Remember those times when you were a child and unfortunate enough to catch a stomach bug? In so many households, ginger ale was or is a staple in making sour tummies feel better. In a similar fashion, ginger essential oil is quite often a go-to in the aromatherapy toolkit when looking to improve digestive issues and ease nausea. Ginger oil helps soothe sore joints and muscles, working to help calm muscle spasms, and encourage warmth and circulation during these colder months. When feeling tired and burnt out, it may assist in making us feel energized and motivated.

When using topically in a blend, make sure you accompany it with skin nourishing oils and carriers as it can cause sensitivity if the dilution is above 1%. For an inhaler, a little goes a long way, so start off with only a drop or two as it can be slightly irritating to the mucous membranes.
