I used ginger oil in 2 treatments last week, and loved every minute of them.
Rosemary, Ginger and Geranium
My intention for this blend was to create warmth in the muscles, and release muscle tension so there was more room for fluidity and movement.
The blend was stunning and the geranium was the little sweet treat the ginger and rosemary needed to be more appealing to the nose, and to add a little happiness and joy.
Ginger, Rose Geranium and Orange
This blend was created to treat stomach upset and IBS. It was important to make ginger the star here, so I just added some rose geranium (because my client likes the scent, it’s a delightful flower oil that inspires joy, and I must have had it on my mind from the previous blend) and some orange for sweetness. Having bad digestion can indicate someone may not be enjoying and “digesting” life.
It must have been the ginger-geranium week and these two oils work really well together. So do ginger and orange!
So what is Ginger good for?
The ginger root is used for
– treating upset stomach and sea sickness
– making a hot drink with lemon and honey to reduce the symptoms of a cold
– warming the extremities by drinking ginger tea or taking a straight shot of ginger juice
The essential oil can be used for the same things physically, and in a meta-physical sense I use ginger oil to
– negate the colder/harder parts of my mind and thinking
– enhance my ability to communicate in a softer way
– help to focus on dharma and purpose in life
