Ginger has a hot/spicy, earthy and woody scent. It is a powerful tonic for the entire digestive system. Try one drop of ginger essential oil mixed in a glass of commercial ginger oil, especially after a big meal. Your tummy will say thank you! Used for aromatherapy, it is an anti-inflammatory and bronchodilator (widening of the bronchi) and is indicated for all types of bronchitis and asthma.
