Ginger essential oil is extracted from the plant Zingiberaceae officinale of the Zingiberaceae family and is also known as Common or Jamaica Ginger. Ginger oil can vary in color from pale yellow to a darker amber color and the viscosity also ranges from medium to watery. It is strong smelling oil - spicy, sharp, and warm with a hint of lemon and pepper, which smells of actual ginger.
The oil is extracted by means of steam distillation from the unpeeled or dried, ground-up root (rhizome) of the plant, and can yield about 2 - 4 % oil.
The essential oil has various chemical constituents including the following: a-pinene, camphene, b-pinene, 1, 8-cineole, linalool, borneol, y-terpineol, nerol, neral, geraniol, geranial, geranyl acetate, b-bisabolene and zingiberene.
Ginger oil is used in the treatment of fractures, rheumatism, arthritis, bruising, carbuncles, nausea, hangovers, travel and sea sickness, colds and flu, catarrh, congestion, coughs, sinusitis, sores on the skin, sore throat, diarrhea, colic, cramps, chills and fever. Ginger oil is well suited to help ease colds and flu, nausea, motion sickness, morning sickness, muscle aches and pains, as well as poor circulation and arthritic pain. Since ginger oil strong smells, it can overpower weaker oils, but blends well with all citrus and spicy oils such as bergamot, frankincense, neroli, rose, Sandalwood and Ylang-Ylang.
