The Oil of Empowerment
One whiff of Ginger Essential Oil and you will understand why this is called The Oil of Empowerment. It is one strong oil!
The last time I went to California Adventure and rode the California Screamin' ride, my Ginger oil saved my stomach. Known for its ability to ease nausea, I made sure it was in my pocket as I nervously waited to board the ride and I probably used 2-3 drops under my tongue, just in case. It worked like a charm.
Historically speaking, the ancients esteemed this root as a spice and a balm for the digestive system. It was used in gingerbread (up to 4,000 years ago in Greece), in Egyptian cuisine (to ward off epidemics), in Roman wine (for its aphrodisiac powers), in Indian tea (to soothe upset stomachs) and in Chinese tonics (to strengthen the heart and relieve congestion).
Personally, I use Ginger oil in my tea (1 drop or 1 toothpick dip) and in my Asian marinades and sautee cooking.
Ginger (Zingiber Officinals) is steam distilled from rhizomes. The chemical constituents found in Ginger are Sesquiterpenes, Monoterpenes, Alcohols, Ketones and Aldehydes. For more scientific information on essential oils, visit www.aromaticscience.com.
Here are the top properties: anti-inflammatory, antispamodic, digestive, laxative, analgesic, stimulant, decongestant.
Allow this powerful essential oil to assist you with nausea, morning sickness, loss of appetitie, motion sickness, vertigo, memory and brain support, heartburn and reflux, spasms and cramps, colic and constipation, congestion and sinusitis, cold, flu and sore throat, or emotional balance.
Emotionally, ginger is empowering. It addresses victim mentality and feelings of powerlessness. Next time you have to have a serious or sensitive conversation with someone, consider having ginger tea or inhaling straight from the bottle. Ginger helps individuals with a sense of control. It encourages being in the present moment and participating in life. It fosters commitment and dedication.
Cooking with Ginger Essential Oil
This is one of my favorite dishes made with Ginger Essential Oil:
Try this for an Asian marinade:
Blend 1-2 cloves garlic, 2 tablespoons sesame oil, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 1-2 drops Ginger Essential Oil, 2 teaspoons sesame seeds, 2 green onions sliced and 2 Tablespoons water. Pour over chicken, beef or tofu and marinate in a baggie or other container for at least 1 hour.
