Origin & History

Our organic ginger essential oil is produced in China, and was originally discovered in Southeast Asia over 5000 years ago. In the 1st century, traders took ginger into the Mediterranean regions where it was valued for its medicinal benefits, it was a popular warming spice, a digestive aid, and sometimes used to treat flatulence and colic. 

In the Middle Ages, ginger was valued so much that the price of a half a kilogram of ginger was the same as that of one sheep. Ginger was commonly used in traditional medicine for its ability to soothe inflammation, fevers, colds, respiratory discomforts, nausea and more. 

It has also traditionally been used as an antimicrobial food preservative, and has been used as a spice for flavouring and its digestive properties. Organic ginger essential oil was also used to ease nervousness, sadness and low self-confidence.
