Ginger can help your digestive system establish regularity. Often used in cooking, especially in Asia, ginger offers health benefits primarily that serve digestion. For instance, the oil possesses natural soothing and relieving properties that help calm occasional nausea, upset stomach, or motion sickness.
In fact, carrying the bottle on a long road trip or a rocking boat can ease the most sensitive stomach.
The oil’s strong digestive properties, along with its natural ability to flavor everything from baked goods to stir fry dishes, make it one powerful agent to have on hand when you?re throwing together a meal.
To relieve the occasional upset stomach, add 1-2 drops ginger to a glass of drinking water and take internally. For motion sickness or nausea, add a drop or two to your hands, cup and inhale, for stomach-calming relief.
To serve the digestive tract, dilute 1-2 drops with a carrier oil and apply topically to the stomach and the soles of the feet. Lastly, you can add ginger oil to any number of dishes for its pungent and spicy flavor.
General Methods of Application
Apply diluted for sensitive skin. Aromatically. Topically. Internally.
Those with sensitive skin should dilute the oil with a carrier oil. Avoid touching the eyes, ears, and other sensitive areas with the oil.
