3 Ways to Use Ginger Essential Oil
By Fizza Mehdi
People have been using ginger for thousands of years, it is considered one of the most common dietary spices consumed worldwide! Many Eastern cultures use ginger for medicinal purposes such as treating common colds, reducing hypertension, and treating nausea, among many other uses.
The way ginger is processed can increase the therapeutic benefits of the root even more. At Miracle Botanicals, our ginger essential oil is extracted by carbon dioxide (CO2). This method entails using pressurized gas to harness the potent chemicals naturally found within the root.
Ginger essential oil has a strong, spicy, earthy aroma, true to root we are all familiar with using in the kitchen.
*Please use with caution, as ginger essential oil can cause irritation to the skin if not diluted properly.
