Ginger has a warm, tangy aroma that is commonly found in many Oriental dishes and scents. While it is a prominent ingredient in the kitchen, not everyone is a fan of its earthy, musky fragrance. Depending on its distillation, some forms of this essential oil may be too overbearing. However, this doesn't mean you should pass up on this all-important scent. There are many reasons why this essential oil should be a part of your favorites. Why? Here are the reasons.
The origins of ginger can be traced back in India and China, where it has been used for its medicinal properties. Mainly, it was promoted as a cure for digestion. The locals take this in order to help digest heavy food items such as meat and poultry. Primarily, ginger aids in softening the meat while cooking. It is also used as a natural preservative.
The hot, pungent aroma coming from this plant makes it distasteful to some. The culprit: Gingerol, a powerful acrid compound that actually possesses many health benefits. Don't shy away from its smell; you can actually find many advantages for its unlikely warm and energizing aroma.
Other than these factors, ginger is also known for its stress-relieving property. It is a powerful anti-depressant and relieves anxiety and dizziness. Ginger is also researched to be useful in aiding the treatment of cancer and helps dissolve kidney stones. Outwardly, ginger oil can help control dandruff.
Ginger is often used as a middle and base note and can be mixed with other essential oils such as orange and bergamot (rejuvenating), sandalwood (earthy), rosemary, rose and ylang ylang (romantic) and frankincense.
