Organic Ginger Fresh essential oil from distilled fresh roots (rhizomes) has a sweeter more robust aroma compared to our other Ginger
from the dried roots that is lighter and softer. For a well rounded expression of ginger we highly recommend this essential oil made from the fresh root.
Ginger essential oil is a lovely warming oil renowned for preventing vomiting, morning sickness, travel or motion sickness, and nausea. For aromatherapy inhale a few drops of Ginger essential oil from a tissue, mix with a carrier oil and apply to temples and stomach before and during travel or nausea related conditions, or, diffuse in an oil warmer.
This fresh Ginger essential oil may also be useful for post-chemotherapy nausea by diffusing a few drops for inhalation in an oil diffuser
or mixed with odorless fractionated coconut oil carrier oil
for applying to temples and stomach area. A new study presented during the 2009 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncologists (ASCO) shows that ginger is useful for treating chemotherapy associated nausea.
Ginger essential oil is also good when used directly in the bath or massage blends for arthritis, muscle aches, lethargy, colds, flu and all winter chills as it warms the mind and body giving a feeling of well-being. It is also said that ginger is good for loneliness.
