Ginger essential oil is a steam distillation from the ginger plant rhizome (root), a tropical flowering plant that is native to Asia. It has a warm, spicy, and invigorating aroma, and is known for its natural anti-inflammatory and digestive properties.

Ginger essential oil is commonly used in aromatherapy to help promote feelings of energy, reduce nausea, and ease muscle and joint pain.

In traditional medicine, ginger has been used for centuries to help support overall health and wellbeing.

Some studies have shown the anti-inflammatory properties of Ginger Essential oil, especially in joints, being a good aid to rheumatic pain. Some components of the oil act directly on the immune system, modulating T lymphocyte, in order to inhibit eosinophilia.



Ginger has antioxidant properties and has a tonic effect, being able to normalize hypopigmented scars (scars lighter than natural skin tone) 

As a powerful antiseptic and cleansing agent it helps to detoxify the skin, and it's particularly effective in healing acne, minimising the rate of acne formation and clearing up triggers of breakouts. For further purifying action, use Lavender Oil. 


People who are under treatment for hair growth should avoid Ginger. A 2013 study showed that the molecule 6-Gingerol present in Ginger essential oil Inhibits Hair Shaft Growth in Cultured Human Hair Follicles. 

As with any essential oil, ginger oil is very concentrated and shouldn’t be applied to the skin undiluted.

If you’re concerned about a potential skin reaction, you should first test a small amount of diluted ginger oil on your skin. 

How to use

Always use Ginger essential oil diluted in a carrier oil with 3 to 5% concentration.

Do not ingest.
