Product Overview

Our organic Ginger essential oil has a warm, fresh, somewhat pungent aroma with a sweet, spicy-woody, tenacious undertone. This oil is a superb choice for personal care, cosmetic and skin care applications, where the milder, distilled essential oils of Ginger are recommended, rather than the more pungent and very concentrated Ginger CO2 extracts.[1] Approximately 1 kilo of essential oil is obtained from about 150 kilos of dried rhizomes.[2]

Zingiber officinale is native to the tropical coastal locales of India and is cultivated in most tropical and subtropical regions: Jamaica, southwest India, Indochina, Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon), West Africa, south China, south Japan, and Central America, with smaller crops grown in Madagascar, Zanzibar, Indonesia, northwest Australia, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Cuba, and other areas of the West Indies.[3] The historical usage of Ginger is geographically and culturally vast and it is considered one of the oldest and most important aromatic plants.[4] Ginger was highly esteemed by the ancient Greeks and Romans who obtained it from Arabian traders via the Red Sea.[5]

Despite its long and storied history, Ginger Root essential oil has only more recently been included as a must-have in the collections of aromatherapists, natural perfumers and massage therapists alike. Many find it useful in massage formulas, both before and after exercise, and in chest and foot rubs. Inhaling the invigorating aroma of Ginger is an elevating experience for the senses that is enjoyed in many ways across cultures – and particularly while traveling between them. It has been reported by ethnobotanists that women in Senegal and Fouta-Djalon weave the rhizomes of Ginger into belts with the aim of engaging the dormant senses of their husbands.[6] We love it in perfumery or diffuser blends to bring an ambiance of warmth and intimacy.

Fresh and Zingy

Rating

To my nose, smells identical to freshly grated ginger. As per the "blends well with" suggestion, I tried just a hint of it (very potent!) with Organic Hawaiian Sandalwood and Organic Vanilla CO2, and was immediately transported to a heavenly memory of the islands, even without a floral note. So happy!

Pretty woody

Rating

I was excited at first but when I got it I was very dismayed because the aroma is not at all sweet. It was very woodsy and really only smelt like uncut ginger straight from the ground

Review by Oscar 5/23/2017

Wonderful!

Rating

Crisp, clean, citrus scent - just like freshly grated ginger. Not woody at all, like ginger root.
