Living Libations Ginger Essential Oil  is a warm and wonderful new Ginger offering that is distilled through steam, differing from our classic Ginger Root which is a thicker super-critical extraction. Gregarious Ginger grows underground rhizomes that are an ample source of antioxidants and anodynics to help you get on with life. It is a mainstay of traditional Eastern balancing tonics and historically one of the most trusted and important apothecary herbs. One drop is tasty and warming, adding moxie to culinary creations and beloved of bellies. Add another drop to a salve or balm to ease the tightness and tensions of everyday life or inspiring, spicy inhalations.

Hippocrates famously said, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” He could have been referring to gallant Ginger as it is beloved around the world as a culinary-apothecary treasure. Drops of Ginger can be added to teas, lozenges, pastries, salads, and an array of savory sensations for bodies that need some soothing heat.

Essential oil constituents vary by where the plant is grown, and ginger grown in the tropical lowland forest of Madagascar contains a whopping 194 plant constituents, including a wealth of redness-reducing and growth-suppressing 6-gingerol and 6-shogaol. The rhizome harvest takes place between June and July. After drying, the rhizomes are steam-distilled to produce the essential oil.
