GINGER ROOT ESSENTIAL OIL 10ML
Botanical name Zingiber Officinale.
Ginger Root is stimulating and healing. It restores confidence and vitality.
It can be used in a diffuser or inhaled from a tissue, but take care to only use small amounts – Ginger Root is powerful and can irritate if used in large quantity.
Often Ginger Root Essential Oil is included in massage oil blends specifically for tired or sore muscles. Its warming and stimulating properties are very useful in sports massage.
Ginger Root Essential oil can also be used in a bath for overtired or overworked muscles. Ginger is particularly good for soothing tired back muscles to allow for better deeper sleep.
When using Ginger Root Essential Oil in a bath, blend it 50/50 with honey or vinegar to stop the oil from coming straight to the surface.
Take care after topical application, Ginger Root essential oil is slightly phototoxic – meaning that if you were to apply this oil and go out into strong sunlight, you could have a temporary rash-like irritation come up.
Ginger Root is a woody oil and blends well with top note oils such as citrus oils lemon lime grapefruit or orange and in treating anxiety or worry, blends well with lavender, frankincense & marjoram.
Ginger is used in blends for feelings of self-doubt and deep-seated melancholy – such as marriage breakups or acute grief situations. Use it as a minor ingredient in blends (half the number of drops of other essential oils) and include bergamot, mandarin or lemon in the same quantity as ginger.
Ginger is also useful in the treatment of digestion-related issues and assists with nausea. It’s great with peppermint and mandarin as a travel blend to avoid digestion problems and keep energy levels high.
