Ginger Essential Oil

Ginger essential oil is an unsung hero, as it's a powerful inflammation healer though it can be looked over because it's so simple!

We all know from growing up that Ginger helps to settle nausea associated with an upset stomach. That's just the beginning! This form of Ginger in pure essential oil does just that and more: it's the most concentrated and potent way to experience the plants benefits!

Ginger has been used for centuries for medicinal purposes, and is the worlds most widely cultivated spice. Ginger is used in Traditional Chinese Medicine health practices for its warming and stimulating effects, while Ayurvedic practices focus on ginger’s digestive benefits.

doTERRA sources its Ginger from Kenya, Indonesia and Madagascar, its'native origins. The oil is produced from freshly picked ginger root, which results in a preferred chemical and aromatic profile over other oils that are produced from the dried root.

doTERRA's Ginger Essential Oil is also food and medical grade so it's safe to take internally and flavor cooking and baking - the third party testing results are public on I don't use Ginger powder anymore because of the fresh taste I get when cooking or baking with this oil!

Ginger is a warming and energizing oil is that delivers antioxidant protection and may help reduce bloating, gas, and occasional indigestion. Experimental research has shown that Ginger essential oil has beneficial digestive effects when taken internally. I use it internally with Lemon essential oil to soothe any occasional heartburn.

Emotionally, Ginger is the oil of empowerment! It shows individuals how to be wholly committed to life, you must be fully present in it to participate. According to the book Emotions and Essential Oils, Ginger addresses deep patterns of victim mentality (something I've been working on healing myself).

This can manifest as powerlessness, believing everything is outside of one's control, refusing to take responsibility for life, or blaming life circumstances on other people or outside influences.

This quote struck me: "Victims feel stuck as they decentralize or disown responsibility and blame others or outside circumstances for their misfortunes."

Ginger infuses a warrior mentality and empowers individuals in taking complete responsibility for their life circumstances. This spicy oil infuses purposefulness and accountability, as it forces individuals to go within and no longer wait on outside circumstances to change.

Ginger helps to create ones own destiny!
