Ginger root has been considered a panacea for centuries. In the 14th century, a pound of ginger was worth one sheep. Ginger is widely used for viral infections, nausea, muscle and joint pain, to regenerate the body and improve circulation. In some cultures it is considered an aphrodisiac.
YuzuYuzu highly concentrated essential oil is extracted from the root of Indian ginger using the process of steam distillation. Ginger oil has a distinctive aroma that can be described as strong, warm, spicy, woody and earthy. It is primarily used in aromatherapy, but also in medicine and cosmetics.
Ginger oil is a great help, especially for the autumn and winter months, thanks to its antiseptic effects. Combining ginger oil with citrus oils in a diffuser (e.g. with Yuzu oil) will scent your home and also clean the air of viruses and mites. For other ailments, we recommend keeping a bottle of ginger oil at home year-round.
Ginger oil is used to improve blood circulation, as a common component of massage blends, and to relieve muscle and joint pain. Slightly diluted ginger oil in a diffuser can help relieve nausea and kinetosis.
Thanks to more than 40 different antioxidants, ginger oil protects the skin from free radicals and thus from premature aging, improves elasticity, regenerates the epidermis, and helps reduce hyperpigmentation and soften scars. Thanks to its antiseptic properties, it helps detoxify the skin, allowing it to breathe naturally. It helps with the healing of acne and minimises its further formation.
On an emotional level, this oil has energising and uplifting effects.
We recommend trying combinations of fragrance blends
The spicy, earthy notes of ginger essential oil blend well with other warm oils such as cinnamon and cassia. You can also blend ginger oil with sweet citrus scents like wild orange, Yuzu oil or ylang-ylang.
Like any essential oil, ginger oil is mildly phototoxic, so it is not recommended to use it in direct sunlight where skin irritation is a risk. We also do not recommend using the oil in the bath if there is a risk of irritation to sensitive skin areas.
If applied to the skin, it should be tested on a small patch of skin for tolerance. It is also advisable to dilute the oil with cold-pressed vegetable oil to prevent possible skin irritation.
Add 3 drops of ginger oil to a small amount of a quality vegetable oil (jojoba, argan, olive, etc.) and massage in circular motions over the area of the abdominal pain.

Mix ½ cup cane sugar and ½ cup coconut oil, and add 5 drops of ginger oil and 5 drops of lime oil (or other citrus oil). Use twice a week during the summer months to regenerate skin and remove hyperpigmentation.
To create a toning and nourishing face mask with softening, brightening and even aphrodisiac properties, thoroughly mix 5 drops of ginger essential oil, 2 tablespoons of honey and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Then place the mixture in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Apply this mixture on your face as a mask and leave it on for 30 minutes, then rinse it off with cold water. This mask is known to have a rejuvenating and brightening effect on the skin.
For natural and effective soothing of the scalp affected by dandruff, 2 drops of ginger essential oil can be added to the regular dose of shampoo.
For a hair mask that stimulates hair growth by boosting circulation in the scalp, mix 10 drops of ginger essential oil and 10 drops of jojoba oil in a small bowl. Massage this mixture into your scalp in circular motions and leave it on for at least 30 minutes, then rinse and shampoo your hair as usual. This mask will not only prevent thinning and hair loss, but will also nourish the strands with fatty acids, thereby stimulating hair growth.
