Newly sourced from Madagascar, 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. 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.*
