Ginger, Fresh - Organic
Koru Essential Oils Organic Fresh Ginger
Notes From The Koru Oils Lab™ -
Koru's Organic Fresh Ginger essential oil is made from newly harvested, rather than dried Ginger rhizomes, giving it a lively and intense, mouthwatering aroma. This oil is a great choice for personal care, cosmetic, and skin care applications, where the milder, steam distilled oils of Ginger are recommended, rather than the more pungent and very concentrated Ginger CO2 extracts.1 Ginger has a long history of uses in medicines and has only more recently been used by aromatherapists, natural perfumers, and massage therapists. Many find it useful in massage formulas, both before and after exercise, and in cases of under or over exercise. Ginger has an affinity for the muscular system as well as the digestive system.
