  • Ginger oil is extracted from the ginger rhizome after a distillation process. Like other essential oils, it’s very concentrated.
  • Ginger oil has a distinct aroma that can be described as strong, warm, or spicy. As such, it’s often used for aromatherapy. Ginger oil can also be used in a variety of applications in the skin and hair.

  • nausea.
  • arthritis.
  • digestive upset.
  • colds.
  • migraines.
  • 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.
