How is it so differnet that fresh root?
October 19, 2013
Ginger Oil is a great aromatic oil, but something about it just doesn't seem right. It's aromatic and functional up to a level, yes, but it has a completely different energy than fresh ginger and more of a difference than any other fresh herb/oil I've ever known. I like fresh ginger externally to create penetrating warmth and to clear stagnation. For example, a hot ginger compress on the abdomen is great for constipation. This oil would probably serve a similar function, but the whole time, I would be wondering what the heck plant I am using!
Cons:it doesn't feel like it's ginger at all, perhaps only very mildly.
