I was honored to have been featured in The Hip Horticuturist, in which they wrote:
“Janice, from Garden of Essences, shared her experience with ginger relating to the digestive system.
Ginger has been used for centuries, as a digestive aid. Many people have found that when they are suffering from indigestion, for some reason, the over-the-counter remedies sometimes fail to work. But by simply drinking ginger tea, one feels almost immediately settled.
Ginger Tea can be made with finely grated, fresh ginger root, simmered in water for twenty minutes. Strain the ginger pieces, then drink as is, or add honey, cinnamon, or nutmeg. There are some ready made ginger teabags, which are good, but not as potent as using raw ginger root. The raw ginger contains phenolic compounds, which calm intestinal spasms.“
Ginger Essential Oil, which is steam distilled from the raw ginger root, is:
1) PENETRATINGLY WARMING, for stiff muscles, rheumatism, arthritis, and cramp.
Ginger Essential Oil should be diluted in vegetable oil, at a dilution of 15 drops per 50 ml of vegetable oil. It must then be massaged into the affected area, for several minutes.
Steam distilled Essential Oils, such as Ginger, are so molecularly fine, that they are able to penetrate the 4 million pores of our skin, all seven layers of skin tissue, and every muscle layer, where they enter the bloodstream, and perform medicinally, much in the same way that any drug would, except without all the awful side effects. Gingerol, in Ginger essential oil, has been proven to be anti-inflammatory in numerous studies.
You can add grated ginger to curries and stews, to benefit from it all day long, as the bio-active anti-inflammatory compounds, have been found to block inflammation, just as well as drugs do.
2) GINGER IS A RESPIRATORY DECONGESTANT – coughs, colds, and sinus congestion, are alleviated by drinking ginger tea. The gingerol in Ginger is an anti-inflammatory, and it contains sesquiterpenes, which are specifically used to target rhinoviruses (the most common family of cold viruses.)
When using ginger essential oil as a decongestant, blend into vegetable oil, then rub well into chest and throat, several times a day. The application of a hot water bottle, over your chest, will enhance the absorption of the ginger oil. Note that people with very sensitive skins, should not use ginger oil.
3) GINGER IS ANTI-NAUSEA – hangover, sea sickness, and motion sickness, can be helped by ginger tea, and ginger essential oil. Ginger also alleviates pregnancy related morning sickness, but this is best used in the form of tea, because ginger essential oil is contraindicated in pregnancy.
Instead, you can bake a gingerbread, using raw, grated ginger, in place of ginger spice. Pregnant ladies can eat this as ginger toast, to alleviate nausea.
Place 8 drops of ginger essential oil in a bath, then soak away your aches and pains, for 15 minutes. Pregnant women can, instead, place 2 teaspoons of grated ginger into a hot bath, and soak.
4) GINGER IS AN APHRODISIAC – for an unusually potent sexual experience, massage each other with Ginger Oil, before lovemaking. Follow the blending recipe above.
A general warning: Do not expose skin to sun for 12 hours after applying ginger essential oil to skin, as it can make skin burn unevenly, or cause pigmentation.
Please dilute Essential Oils into our Carrier Oils or Body Butters, before use. Before using any Essential Oils, read our Articles: ‘Blending and Applying Essential Oils safely.’ and ‘SAFETY DATA: Do not use these Essential Oils if the following apply to you.
