Ginger Essential Oil


Ginger Essential Oil

Ginger (zingiber officinalis) has warming, stimulating, astringent and antiseptic properties.

The essential oil is extracted from the dried root of the tropical herbaceous perennial.

The oil has a lemony-pepper, woody-spice smell and has warming, stimulating, astringent and antiseptic properties.

In aromatherapy it is good to boost the circulation, relieve a tight, chesty cough, tummy ache, tight muscles, stiffness or exhaustion.  The astringent and antiseptic properties make it effective to warm and freshen tired feet.

How to use:

Bath & Shower

The essential oil is inhaled through the aromatic steam, as well as being absorbed by the skin. Add up to 5 drops in 2 tbsp bath oil, shower gel, or carrier oil.


This technique helps to clear your head and nose.  Add 4–6 drops to a bowl of steaming water, place a towel over your head and breathe.


Energises your body and mind while helping to soothe aching muscles. Use up to 15 drops in 2 tbsp of base oil.

Diffusers & Burners

A natural air freshener, this technique creates an energising ambiance and mood.  Add 1–3 drops in a diffuser or burner.
