Yep – that’s what I automatically think about when I hear the word ginger & boy was I excited when I found out I could get hold of ginger in a bottle!

But why?

Well, I love a little bit of ginger beer because it’s just so refreshing & now I can literally have fresh ginger in a glass of sparkly water whenever I want without all the other gassy yucky stuff or excessive sugar that comes with carbonated drinks.

Before we get onto why else you would want ginger essential oil here’s a little bit of background information.

What is ginger?

Ginger is a long green plant with yellow flowers but is more commonly recognised by you and I because of the nobly root’s of the plant.

Ginger no longer grows wild although it originated in the tropical rainforests of Southern Asia & most probably India.

What a great little bit of history hey?

Now onto what it does –

All the A’s:

  • Antiseptic
  • Laxative
  • Stimulant
  • Tonic
  • Warming

(OK, so this one isn’t full of so many A’s but you get where I’m coming from!)

What’s it for?

  • Angina (A, T)
  • Diarrhea (T, I)
  • Gas (T, I)
  • Indigestion (A, I)
  • Morning Sickness (A, T, I)
  • Nausea (A, I)
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis (T)
  • Vertigo (A, T)
  • Vomiting (A, I)

How I use it:

Well you already know I drink it just for fun in a glass of sparkly water but what else do I do?

I definitely use it if I’m feeling a little queasy although I tend to diffuse it rather than take it internally. I’m one of those who can’t move or drink anything if I feel sick because that will just increase the chances of the inevitable & I hate being sick.

I was surprised about the arthritis use and will definitely be passing this information onto my clients to test this out as its not something I struggle with.

In my mind ginger is the ‘digestive’ oil of choice. Feel free to grab the infographic above or share with your network.
