Essential Oil Rockstar: Ginger

Hello! Happy Thursday 🙂

Who else loves the pickled ginger that comes with sushi? Yeah, it’s pretty much the bee’s knees 😉 I ration it so I get a little piece with every bite of sushi!

The essential oil is just as spicy and sweet with that ginger “zing”!

  
(Some freshly picked ginger from the container garden)

It’s favorite add-in of mine for raw juices, because it supports digestion, and one of the reasons I juice is to promote healthy digestion. Because essential oils last for so long (years!) and it only takes a drop, it’s a cost-effective way to never run out of fresh ginger to juice. Also, I wouldn’t go cruising without it! Say bye-bye to occasional nausea after a whiff of ginger (diffuser jewelry comes in handy here, or just sniff from the bottle).

It’s hot, spicy, earthy, and sweet – and a great way to enhance your gingerbread cookies this time of year! (Remember to add it to the liquid part of the batter, not the dry.)

It’s not hard at all to grow your own ginger, either (and it loves humidity, so Flordia peeps, this is something you can actually grow!). I’ve been doing it for months from a little piece I purchased at the grocery store, soaked overnight in water, and stuck under a little dirt in a container on the porch.

Here a few more of the essential oil’s benefits:
