Ginger is also known as the oil of empowerment, and it seems there’s little it cannot do. This warm, stimulating oil is best-known for its gut-healing properties – little wonder that ginger features in many cuisines as a digestive aid. But this energizing, sharp and spicy oil also helps you feel alive, dispelling feelings of apathy, fatigue and resignation. It helps you focus, and to feel warmth, fortitude and courage.
Common Uses: Ginger has traditionally been known for its stimulating and heating properties and can be used diluted in massage to relieve sore muscles and joints. A drop or two can be used to ward off nausea, hangovers, stomach aches, sore throats and runny colds. It’s so stimulating (it speeds circulation) that it’s long been used in cases of impotence. Use in a diffuser or diluted with a carrier oil, as Ginger can irritate sensitive skins.
