Why Choose Poya Ginger Root Essential Oil?
Poya Ginger Root Essential Oil has been used since ancient times to treat a variety of conditions. Today, we still use it for many ailments. Indigenous to China and Java, it spread as far as Africa and the West Indies and was valued for its medicinal and culinary properties. In addition, it was believed that Ginger was brought to Europe between the 10th and 15th centuries as both a condiment and spice.
As a perennial herb, Ginger root grows up to four feet high. It produces narrow bright green spear-shaped leaves and white or yellow flowers. The root itself is a small tuberous rhizome with brown skin. The root of the plant is macerated and distilled over high heat, from which the oil is then extracted. Surprisingly, Ginger Root Essential Oil has a different aroma to the pungency of fresh ginger root – the oil is softer and sweeter, with a very pleasant, spicy fragrance.
When used for aromatherapy, warm spicy ginger root is known as the oil of empowerment. It is able to relieve feelings of depression and anxiety and create feelings of courage and self confidence. It has also been used as an aphrodisiac for many centuries. Furthermore, the warm spiciness is a wonderful addition to a cold winters day.
