Ancient Apothecary Ginger Essential Oil, 0.5 oz.
Ginger is a flowering plant widely used as a spice, and it has been used traditionally for thousands of years. Ginger is part of the plant family that includes turmeric and cardamom, and all are regarded for their health and wellness benefits. Ginger has a sweet, spicy, woody and warm scent, and ginger essential oil is a warming essential oil. Due to its reported digestive health properties, ginger is often an integral part of Asian cuisines. Ginger essential oil is believed to be the most potent form of ginger because it has the highest levels of gingerol. In fact, of the 115 different chemical components found in ginger root, the health benefits are believed to come from gingerols, the oily resin from the root that has antioxidant properties and helps support a healthy response to inflammation. Ginger essential oil is also made up of approximately 90 percent sesquiterpenes, which help to support microbial balance as well as a healthy response to inflammation. Plus, it can offer notable benefits, including easing indigestion and nausea, supporting healthy digestion and providing warmth to the body.
