Aromatherapists believe that Ginger oil is useful for nausea, colds and flu. It also has warming and aphrodisiac properties that can help you energise your body and mind.
As we know today, Ginger is one of the most well-known and highly adored plants in the world. The ancient oil has quite a long history as it has been used throughout many different civilizations. One of its most popular uses in modern times is for digestive complaints. This may be due to the discovery by Chinese philosopher, Confucius, who once noted that he never ate a meal without Ginger.
All our exotic and rare (hence more costly) essential oils and absolutes are available in jojoba. This allows you the benefit of enjoying Ginger Oil but in a jojoba oil base at a great price. An extremely cost effective way to experience essential oils and absolutes!
How To Use
Diffuse: Add a few drops to a diffuser to disperse around the room
Topically: Dilute essential oil with any carrier oil at a 2.5% ratio. This equates to 2.5ml essential oil/oils in total mixed with 100ml of chosen carrier oil. 1ml of essential oil is approximately 20-22 drops of oil. Decant into a roller or glass bottle with eye dropper to apply easily or a larger bottle if using for massage. Please note this dilution rate is for adults and children over the age of 6. More information on children and essential oils is on our blog page. Essential Oils should not be used directly on the skin without mixing first with a carrier oil
Inhalation: Add 1-2 drops essential oil to a tissue and inhale at a distance while ensuring that the oil does not come into direct contact with the skin. Alternatively, you can smell the oil directly from the bottle.
Our freshly decanted Ginger essential oil will last for 2-3 years minimum from when you open your amber glass bottle if stored correctly.
Primary Storage Considerations: Keep away from direct light (U.V. radiation). Keep in the amber glass bottle with lid tightly closed. Only open when you need to and decant into a smaller "working" amber glass bottle if possible (and label so you know what is in it). This is to reduce oxidation.
Secondary Storage Considerations: Keep in a refrigerator at around 4 degrees celsius.
Some essential oils may cause photosensitivity to the skin - Use diluted in Jojoba or other complete carrier oil.
Do not ingest essential oils.
Do not apply to eyes, sensitive areas or mucous membranes.
