INDIA. Ginger (Zingiber officinalis) Essential Oil, Steam Distilled
Ginger's scent is often described as earthy, warm, and spicy. For blending, it is considered a middle note.
Ginger essential oil carries the full range of benefits associated with this wonderful root, quelling inflammation and nausea, reducing pain, fighting infection, and bolstering the mood. It relieves menstrual cramps and is considered aphrodisiac.
Our essential oils are sold in amber glass bottles with a dropper orifice for drop-by-drop administration. Do not ingest essential oils unless under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner or experienced aromatherapist. Essential oils should always be diluted in a carrier oil before being applied to the skin. (Some examples of carrier oils: Jojoba, Sunflower, Grapeseed, Rosehip Seed, Castor, and Avocado; gently liquified Coconut Oil, Shea, or Cocoa Butter can also work for creating thicker body care products.) Always test the diluted essential oil on a small patch of skin before applying more widely.
The maximum recommended strength for topical use of Ginger essential oil is 4% (4 drops per teaspoon of carrier oil).
