Description and Uses:
This ginger essential oil, distilled from fresh ginger vs dried ginger root, results in an amazingly bright and fresh "true" ginger aroma. We're so excited to carry this oil which is distilled right here in Asheville, NC by a local artisan distiller.
Ginger essential oil is both fiery and fortifying. It makes a comforting massage oil, and blends well with orange for a warming bath in the winter months. Ginger has anti-spasmodic, analgesic, anti-inflammatory and warming properties, making it a fantastic addition to any joint, muscle, pain relieving blends.
Ginger essential oil is also well known for its effectiveness against seasickness, nausea and digestive problems. Ginger essential oil is a helpful oil when one is feeling overwhelmed and exhausted from stress.
Ginger oil may cause irritation of sensitive skin.
