Ginger Essential Oil is derived from the fresh rhizome of the ginger plant—the subterranean stalk of a plant that shoots out the root system. It has been used for thousand of years for both medicinal and culinary purposes. It is considered a key plant in Ayurvedic medicine.
Ginger became widely traded in Europe by Arab traders during the Roman Empire and is said that a pound of ginger could be traded for a sheep. [Sounds like a good deal to me.]
It can be use in a variety of ways, including eaten fresh, dried, crystalized, candied, preserved, made into a tea, grated over foods or as an essential oil.
A featured ingredient in many Asian dishes, Ginger has a hot, fragrant flavor when used as a kitchen spice.
In Western tradition, Ginger is most often used in sweets—gingerbread and ginger snaps being two examples. Ginger is best known as a digestive aid and for helping to ease occasional indigestion. Ginger essential oil can also be applied topically or inhaled to help reduce feelings of stomach irritation.
