When diffused or massaged into skin (always highly diluted), ginger operates as a tonic and restorative for vital health. Ginger is commonly used in Chinese medicine to strengthen the heart and restore the flow of stagnant chi.
The deeply warming qualities of ginger root essential oil render it useful as a general restorative for emotional depletion. It is effective in revitalizing energy and counteracting exhaustion. The essential warming property of gingerol, the active ingredient of ginger root, makes it ideal for digestive support. The essential oil can be topically applied in highly diluted form over the abdomen in a compress. The essential oil, when diffused or inhaled, supports the lungs' natural function of clearing any heaviness or discomfort.
