Ginger essential oil is produced by steam distillation of the dried, unpeeled freshly ground rhizomes. This stimulating oil is particularly useful in the treatment of poor circulation, muscular aches and pains (see our Linament Cream or Winter Eclipse Massage Balm) and digestive complaints. The oil is great to inhale for car sickness. Also helpful for treating catarrh, colds and flu. Please note it is an oil to use in low concentrations to avoid skin irritations. Blends well with lavender, vetiver, lime, orange and rosemary.
