Organic Ginger Essential Oil
Organic Ginger Essential Oil has received a good amount of press attention in recent years. Articles have focused in on it’s potential to alleviate painful autoimmune conditions like Arthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis due to it’s analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties.
But, Organic Ginger Essential Oil has a much more broad application than this. Plus, Organic Ginger Essential Oil possesses all of the same medicinal health benefits of root ginger, but it contains more gingerol, one of the most therapeutic components found in ginger.

Organic Ginger Essential Oil Traditional Health Benefits
Organic Ginger Essential Oil can support digestion, our respiratory system and can be used to fight infections and maintain oral health. It is thought to be just as helpful for ear nose and throat infections, as it is for digestive infections. It can also be used for headaches and for relieving vertigo and dizziness, and as an anti-emetic it is anti-nausea too.
There are not man anti-emetic aromatherapy oils, and some of them are obscure. Two of the better known anti-emetic alternatives to Organic Ginger Essential Oil are just as affordable: Elemi Essential Oil and Organic Peppermint Essential Oil.
Organic Ginger Essential Oil is also known to support heart health.
*It is thought that 90% of heart attacks originate in our mouths. Root canal treatment and tooth extractions can leave pockets of infection that leech out into our vagus nerve, which then connects with our hearts, lungs and digestive tract etc.
So, it’s unsurprising that Ginger Essential Oil is seen to provide infection-reducing support to all of these organs and systems.
Organic Ginger Essential Oil Versus Ginger Root
Consuming organic ginger root as part of a balanced diet is possibly one of the most healthy dietary habits we can engage in. This is because it is deeply antioxidant and universally beneficial for our body.
However, if you want to use organic ginger root therapeutically, then employing the use of Organic Ginger Essential Oil, rather than making organic ginger root teas and poultices etc, is the way forward. This is because the deeply healing constituent Gingerol is in a much more concentrated form in Organic Ginger Essential Oil than it is in root ginger.
Today, ginger essential oil is used to treat nausea, upset stomach, menstrual disorders, inflammation and respiratory conditions. When used as aromatherapy, it’s also known to bring on feelings of courageousness and self-assurance, which is why it’s known as “the oil of empowerment.”
Organic Ginger Essential Oil Aroma
Organic Ginger Essential Oil has a deep, rich, hot and spicy aroma that is reminiscent of, but a lot more intense than, the smell of root ginger.
Organic Ginger Essential Oil For Internal Consumption
Organic Ginger Essential Oil can be used topically*, aromatically and it can also be ingested. However, it is always important to use extreme caution whenever using essential oils internally… a little goes a very long way.
*Organic essential oils are very concentrated and potent. It’s vitally important to use organic essential oils safely and sparingly. Pure organic essential oils need to be diluted appropriately, particularly when being applied to our skin.
For topical and aromatic uses please refer to How To Use Essential Oils
For internal use, simply do one of the following.
- Add a single drop of Organic Ginger Essential Oil to your smoothie in the morning.
- Use an empty veggie capsule, placing one or two drops inside and swallowing it down with some water. *Veggie capsules are broadly available in the UK. There is NO NEED to buy them from Amazon. Buying from US businesses is wrecking the UK economy! Buy from local independents wherever possible.
- Add a single drop to sugar-free coconut water or any other drink which has a thicker consistency than water, or has a certain amount of oil within it, like homemade nut milks etc.
- Use one drop in chai tea, along with one drop of Coriander Essential Oil & one drop of Cinnamon Essential Oil. Make sure you use a full fat milk to make your chai tea.
