Hailing originally from the Far East, Ginger has proved itself a popular fragrance, flavouring and medicinal compound for many years. A staple ingredient in Asian cookery, Ginger lends itself well to the treatment of digestive complaints, as well as a host of other ailments.
Ginger essential oil is extracted from the same part of the plant as commercial ginger used in cookery. Steam distillation is used to draw an almost colourless liquid from the dried roots to produce essential oil.
In the practice of aromatherapy, Ginger is often used to aid digestion and ease stomach cramps. It can also be used as an effective tool for combating sickness and nausea and is especially good when travelling or when inhaled during pregnancy.
When applied to the skin in an aromatherapy massage blend, the oil warms the skin, easing poor circulation and boosting blood flow to cold hands and feet.
