Botanical name: Zingiber officinale
Country of origin: Indonesia
Indigenous to China and Java, Ginger Root first spread to Africa and the West Indies. It is believed to have been brought to Europe as a spice between the 10th and 15th centuries, and eventually came to be known all around the world. Ginger has been used for medicinal purposes since ancient times to treat a wide variety of conditions including colds, coughs, flu, rheumatism, aching muscles and joints, and even malaria. The root of the plant is macerated and distilled over high heat, from which the oil is extracted. Ginger Root Essential Oil has a different aroma from the pungency of fresh ginger root – it is softer and sweeter with a very pleasant spiciness. Used in aromatherapy and massage, its warming properties are reputed to be comforting for the body and its scent is reputed to promote feelings of energy, positivity, and sensuality.
