Ginger – Essential Oil
Ginger has a warm, strong, spicy aroma. It can be calming yet also acts as a stimulant. For muscle and massage formulations, it helps to relieve soreness and stiffness in muscles and increases circulation. It also can help strengthen the immune system during the cold season. Ginger is often used to combat jet lag and motion sickness and is also considered an aphrodisiac. It is suggested for digestive issues such as stomachaches, appetite issues, and spasms.
