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.

Pregnancy

Ginger oil is safe to use in pregnancy and may be used to curb morning sickness or nausea caused by motion and stomach upsets.

Digestive properties

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.

The warming oil

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.

Psychological properties

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”.[1]
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.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine

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.

Methods of use

  • 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.

Pregnancy First Trimester

My interest and passion for aromatherapy began when I was pregnant with my son. I can testify from personal experience that essential oils did not only help me conceive, they also helped me cope with the different physical and emotional problems that come with pregnancy. Ever since, I have incorporated the use of these natural oils as part of my daily life as well as my son’s. Pregnancy is just the right time to pamper your senses and to prepare for the joys of motherhood. For many women, several minor problems like morning sickness, indigestion, fatigue, edema, insomnia and cramps can mar this feeling of happiness.  The scope of Aromatherapy in different stages of pregnancy cannot be underestimated. The benefits of essential oils during pregnancy are so vast that it certainly deserves more than a single blog post to talk about them. In an attempt to share detailed information with my readers, I have come up with a four-part series on the theme that will discuss the goodness of aromatherapy at different stages of pregnancy and childcare. Use of Aromatherapy and Essential Oils during the First Trimester The feeling of excitement and anticipation during the first trimester coupled with hormonal changes in the body can bring about morning sickness, mood-swings, anxiety and gastric problems. Essential oils when used individually or in combination may help alleviate or minimize these symptoms. Moreover, since a woman’s sense of smell is enhanced multifold during pregnancy, it’s great to be surrounded by a pleasant smelling, healthy and relaxing atmosphere. The following essential oils not only offer a refreshing environment but can also be very helpful in suppressing symptoms of stress and discomfort: Spearmint oil is a good nerve tonic that helps fight off mental fatigue and nervous stress. Grapefruit oil is a natural anti-depressant as it uplifts and refreshes the mood. Ginger oil is a warming essential oil often used to treat digestive problems and stomach upsets of any kind. Its warming qualities neutralize feelings of loneliness and winter depression. Lemon oil helps to eliminate emotional confusion and enhance one’s sense of humor and sense of well-being. These oils can be used individually or in combination with other oils according to personal preference. You can use it with your aromatherapy diffuser or if you prefer you can add a couple of drops to a tissue and smell directly and as often as needed.
