Ginger oil is warm and soothing and I think best know for it’s ability to squash morning sickness, nausea, and motion sickness. To use it as a digestive aid you can take it internally, apply it topically or diffuse it. Because of it’s antiseptic and carminative properties (a preperation intended to either prevent formation of gas or expel it) it’s wonderful for treating food poisoning and intestinal infections. I highly recommend diffusing ginger when dealing with chronic or severe nausea.
Ginger is one of my favorite oils and i use it daily for it’s anti-inflammatory properties. I was having inflammatory pain in one of my knees and was using one drop each of lemongrass and ginger oil topically on my knee. I was definitely feeling improvement in my pain but I was looking for no pain. I knew that I needed to fight the inflammation from the inside out. It was then that I began to add one drop each of lemongrass and ginger in a quart of water daily, and in 3 days I was nearly pain free. I would make 2 suggestions if you are interested in this protocol. If you have pain that is moderate to severe you may need more ginger and lemongrass. Also, if you don’t want to drink the essential oils in your water, add them to a gel cap. If you don’t want to use oils internally then by all means use it topically with a carrier oil. I really think you will love the warmth that you will have with these oils. If you’d like to add some additional pain relief, use peppermint oil also.
If you are looking for a warm, spicy and energizing diffuser blend try blending ginger and grapefruit oil. You can also blend them to make a body spray!
