Ginger is used frequently as a natural remedy. It has a warm, strong, spicy aroma. It is relaxing yet can also be stimulating. It helps relieve nausea, indigestion, alleviates soreness and stiffness in muscles, increases circulation and strengthens the immune system during the cold season. It is nice to add to winter-time bath soaks and muscle rubs. Ginger oil blends well with citrus oils, sandalwood, frankincense, cedarwood, and palmarosa.
Ginger oil is very strong, and it must be diluted significantly before using on skin or in the bath. Use it with caution during pregnancy.
