Ginger is one of those essential oils that I actually use year round. One of the newer doTERRA products are their Ginger Lemon drops. These are basically lozenges, I use them mainly for when I have an upset stomach, but also learned a little while ago that Ginger really helps reduce my pain from cramping during PMS. That’s before we get into the season of the year where everything is meant to be Pumpkin and Gingerbread, including those yummy diffuser blends we’re using to make are homes feel all the more cozy!
Historically, this is one very well traveled plant!
Greece started our Gingerbread fanaticism up to 4,000 years ago!
The Egyptians used Ginger to spice their foods when wanting to ward off an epidemic.
Romans used Ginger in wine as an aphrodisiac. Indian tea included Ginger to soothe upset stomachs.
Chinese tonics used Ginger to strengthen the heart and relieve head congestion.
Last but not least, Hawaiians used Ginger to scent their clothes, in their food, and for indigestion. Plus, they also added it to their shampoos and massage oils!
doTerra’s Ginger essential oil is steam distilled from the root.
You too can use Ginger essential oil to replace ginger in any recipe calling for it, but remember to use sparingly. Essential oils are very powerful and easily overwhelm your dish if you use even a drop too many!
