The History of Ginger

Ginger has a long tradition of medicinal and culinary uses, beginning over 4000 years ago in Southeast Asia. This spicy, sweet root’s pungent woody aroma is best known for naturally relieving nausea and discomfort caused by indigestion, morning or motion sickness. Ayurveda, the oldest healing system on earth, prescribes Ginger as a remedy for indigestion, flatulence, nausea, loss of appetite, bronchitis, menstrual cramps, respiratory infections, arthritis, and for enhancing immune power. When the root is used in cooking it amplifies the other spices used with it just as inhaling Ginger essential oil empowers one with feelings of courageousness and self-assurance.

It was quickly adopted as an antimicrobial food preservative to help prevent the growth of harmful bacteria and became a popular trading spice with a strong value associated with it. Through the Silk Road, Ginger Root spread to India and Europe and was even known to be used by King Henry VIII of England in the 16th Century, for fighting against the plague. The Greeks believed the Ginger Root, with its ability to detoxify the body could be used to fight against harmful poisons. This versatile and impressive essential oil became known as “The Oil of Empowerment” with its anti inflammatory and detoxifying properties instilling a sense of courage and determination to master your mind, body and spirit.
