Ginger Essential Oil (1/3 oz.) by Starwest Botanicals
Smells much like powdered Ginger; warm, spicy. This is a steam distilled oil from the dried Ginger root, and more pungent smelling than the organic version. Fiery and peppery, so use in moderation.
Aromatherapy Properties: Stimulating, warming, aphrodisiac and tonic. Helps to soothe the stomach.
Starwest Essential Oils are the life force in every living plant, containing the essence or soul of the plant. Essential Oils come directly from the roots, bark, wood, seed, fruit, leaves or flower of a plant (sometimes a wheel barrow of flowers will produce only a few drops of oil).
The essential odor, taste and medicinal properties of each plant can have pronounced effects on the mind, body, emotions and spirit, which can enrich your senses. Research on the psychological and physiological effects of essential oils is well documented. They have been used for centuries to soothe, heal and rejuvenate the body and soul.
Starwest Essential Oils are 100% pure and natural plant essences, quality tested in our laboratory. Nothing added and nothing taken away. Therapeutically effective and of the highest “Aromatherapy quality”, our essential oils represent the finest quality available today.
Starwest’s 86 varieties of Essential Oils and Certified Organic Essential Oils are extremely versatile, having a multitude of uses such as Aromatherapy, cooking and flavoring, scenting body care products, creating perfumes, enhancing potpourri sachets and more. Starwest Essential Oils are packaged in amber, light resistant bottles with a dropper for every use.
Continuing to Support Sustainable agriculture, Starwest also offers 24 varieties of Certified Organic Essential Oils. Grown in compliance with the National Organic Program.
Apply a few drops to a tissue and inhale; or add to a diffuser.
When using Ginger in skincare, please keep in mind that this is a hot and spicy oil - great for warming the tissue and many healing applications - but also prone to causing irritation when used in high concentrations.
Adding a Ginger-type blend to a warm bath brings welcome stimulation to sore, stiff and overworked muscles. In order to prevent the oils from floating on the surface, blend the Essential Oil with some Half & Half, honey, vinegar or Aromaland's Coconut Emulsifier before adding it to the water.
Ginger Essential Oil is great to replace powdered ginger in the kitchen. For example, try making your own 'gingerbread honey' or syrup, and adding it to tea or desserts. This is not only delicious but helps to soothe the stomach as well. The following is a wonderful recipe for such a honey, great also for a homemade gift.
To 2oz. of maple syrup or honey, add:
* 3 drops Ginger Essential Oil
* 1 drop Cardamom Essential Oil
* 1 drop Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil
* 3 drops Vanilla Essential Oil
* 8 drops of certified organic Orange or Mandarin Orange Essential Oil
For an easy version, blend one drop of Ginger Oil with a teaspoon of honey and enjoy with a steaming hot cup of tea; great for an upset stomach or to fight the onset of a cold or flu.
Natural essential oils are highly concentrated and should be used with care.
