Ginger (Zingiber officinale)


SKU: N/A Category:


Top note with a slight middle. slightly mouth-watering for those of us who like devouring ginger.

Spicy, sharp, pungent, warm with a hint of camphor & lemon.

Colour ranges from light yellow to light brown, depending on growing conditions.

Great for mixing with other warming oils eg pepper, mints, cajeput, and even wintergreen if you want to go from warm to hot.

The  warming qualities  render it useful as a general restorative for emotional depletion; it is said to be effective in revitalizing energy and counteracting exhaustion. It is also said to be an  aphrodisiac and is said to increase sexual openness in both men and women.

The volatile oil consists of mainly mono and sesquiterpenes, camphene, beta-phellandrene, curcumin, cineole, geranyl acetate, terpineol, terpenes, borneol, geraniol, limonene, linalool, alpha-zingiberene (30%–70%), beta-sesquiphellandrene (15%–20%), betabisabolene (10%–15%), and alpha-farnesene.

Small amounts ( usually less than 1 %) of citral, citronellol, farnesol, geraniol, limonene, and linalool are usually present.
