Ginger - Essential Oil
Ginger essential oil is derived from the fresh rhizome of the ginger plant, sourced in Madagascar. Ginger oil has a hot, spicy flavour that can take the place of whole ginger in recipes or add a warm, sweet taste when added to your favourite herbal tea. Ginger essential oil can also be applied topically or inhaled for a soothing aroma.
Why should I add Ginger oil to my collection? The main chemical constituent of Ginger essential oil is zingiberene, giving Ginger its renowned, spicy flavour and making it a popular ingredient in many Asian dishes. When inhaled, the energizing aroma of Ginger oil can help provide moments of calm during car rides or long periods of time in motion. Ginger oil also produces a warm, soothing aroma when diffused or during a personal massage.
