Our organic Fresh Ginger essential oil is made from newly-harvested ginger roots rather than from dried roots, giving it a beautiful, fresh, mouthwatering aroma. Ginger is another well-known spice used extensively in food preparation, traditional and herbal medicine, as well as in aromatherapy and perfumery. For personal care, cosmetic, and skincare formulas, this milder distilled (essential) oil of Ginger is recommended, rather than the more pungent and very concentrated CO2-extracted Ginger oils.1
Zingiber officinale is native to the tropical coastal locales of India and is cultivated in most tropical and subtropical regions, including Jamaica, southwest India, Indochina, Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon), West Africa, south China, south Japan, and Central America, with smaller crops grown in Madagascar, Zanzibar, Indonesia, northwest Australia, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Cuba, and other areas of the West Indies.2 It is considered one of the oldest and most important spices, according to Ernest Guenther, who cites Hoffmann when he states that it was, “known to, and highly esteemed by, the ancient Greeks and Romans who obtained the spice from Arabian traders via the Red Sea.”3
Ginger is used for digestive issues, like indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, nausea; as a sexual tonic for impotence; and as an expectorant for chronic bronchitis.4 It is employed as a circulatory stimulant to address cold hands and feet, cardiac fatigue, and angina pectoris,5 while also being beneficial for muscle pain, joint pain, colds, flu, prevention of morning sickness in pregnancy, motion sickness, and post-operative or chemotherapy-induced nausea.6,7 In 2007, a study was published by BioMedCentral.com where it was reported that, “[g]inger root (Zingiber officinale radix Roscoe) and its main poly-phenolic constituents (gingerols and zerumbone) have anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-carcinogenic activity,” and that, “[t]he use of dietary agents such as ginger may have potential in the treatment and prevention of ovarian cancer.”8
