Distilled from the rhizome of the perennial Ginger herb, this essential oil has a warm, fresh and zesty aroma. Traditionally used in India and China as a digestive tonic, Ginger is a delightful, invigorating oil and should always be diluted before topical use as it is potentially skin sensitizing.
To help support healthy digestion, massage a blend of 1 drop Ginger with 20 drops carrier oil onto the abdomen. Ginger may be diffused in small amounts, typically 1-2 drops per ounce of water. When traveling or experiencing mildly nauseous feelings, a simple palm inhalation method can be used to support a steady stomach and a clear head.
