With over 500 active constituents, ginger is one of the most versatile herbal stimulants. It is a good choice anytime there is need for a warming, stimulating, and moving action. Ginger is frequently used to increase circulation, soothe nausea and upset stomach, reduce gas and bloating, loosen sinus or chest congestion, calm inflammation, and decongest the liver, among other thing. Many herbalists include ginger in blends for nearly any condition in order to rouse the body’s life force and jump-start the medicine’s effect. Ginger is also used externally as a fomentation for pain, inflammation, uterine congestion, and stiff joints. Use caution when applying ginger to sensitive skin or mucus membranes, as it may irritate them.
