As much as it is comforting and flavorsome in food, ginger offers a gamut of health benefits when used in aromatherapy. Known for its ‘warming’ properties, ginger essential oil acts as a tonic for the digestive system, joints as well as the mind.
Aromandina Ginger Essential Oil is obtained from fresh ginger roots organically grown and harvested in Ecuador.
Ginger oil is safe to use in pregnancy and may be used to curb morning sickness or nausea caused by motion and stomach upsets.
Poor appetite may be a result of something as simple as indigestion or something deep-rooted as depression. Ginger oil not only balances the digestive system, it also lifts up a lonely spirit with its spicy aroma. It can be especially helpful in alleviating gastric discomfort, flatulence and acidity.
Ginger oil is helpful during the long, cold winter months when many people experience depression, lethargy and loneliness due to the weather. At these times, ginger oil adds the much needed spice and zest by energizing the body, improving sexual libido and helping the mind focus.
Ginger oil also boosts circulation and provides instant relief from cold extremities and dull, lifeless skin.
Combine it with a carrier oil and massage this warm oil for an excellent remedy for tired, achy joints or rheumatic arthritis.
According to author Peter Holmes, “Clearly just as ginger provides deep warmth and stimulation on the physiological level, its fragrance works deeply into the psyche bringing energy and strength to some of the deepest sources of our power”.
In moments of pessimism and low morale, ginger essential oil serves to motivate the mind and help it find direction.
If you have strong plans for the future but lack willpower or confidence to go through with them, ginger essential will inspire you to be proactive and take consequential action.
Traditional Chinese Medicine has forever used Ginger as a remedy for ‘moisture induced’ maladies like diarrhea, rheumatism and catarrh. The warming properties of ginger are believed to neutralize the ill effects of dampness and moisture which may have an intrinsic or extrinsic source.
For instant relief from nausea, depression and lethargy, take a few sniffs of the oil from a tissue.
Add it to hot water and use it as a compress for sore joints and achy muscles.
Ginger oil can be combined with carrier oil and used for massage.
Use it in a diffuser to spice-up your surroundings.
Don’t apply the oil directly to your skin and avoid going out in the sun after topical application.
