Ginger Organic (Oshadhi) 5ml

Ginger essential oilGinger Organic Essential Oil


Ginger has a warm, spicy and familiar aroma. A powerful antiseptic and stimulant, it provides beneficial support to the respiratory, circulatory and digestive systems. Try a few drops on a hankie if you're on choppy seas! It also soothes the muscles after strenuous workouts and can be blended well with any citrus oil, and Geranium, Sandalwood or Ylang Ylang.

This is a pure therapeutic-quality certified organic aromatherapy essential oil from Sri Lanka and is obtained from the rhizome of the plant.

About Ginger Essential Oil


The benefits of ginger essential oil are nearly identical to the benefits of fresh ginger. Ginger oil actually contains higher levels of gingerol, one of the most therapeutic components found in ginger. Ginger essential oil is used for a variety of issues, from nausea and upset stomach to menstrual disorders, inflammation and respiratory conditions. Ginger oil can be used internally (in small amounts), aromatically and topically. When used on sensitive skin, it should be diluted with a carrier oil.

Ginger Suggested uses for Ginger Essential Oil


  • For muscle and joint pain, rub two to three drops of the oil on the needed area twice daily.
  • To boost mood and feelings of courage, add two to three drops to a diffuser or inhale twice daily.
  • For nausea, diffuse two to three drops of ginger oil.
  • For low libido, diffuse two to three drops of ginger oil or apply one to two drops to the feet or lower abdomen.
  • To aid digestion and get rid of toxins, add two to three drops of ginger oil to warm bathwater.
  • To relieve respiratory conditions, drink ginger tea or add one drop of ginger essential oil to green tea twice daily.
  • To treat vomiting, add one drop of ginger oil to a glass of water or cup of tea and drink slowly.
  • For cooking, start with a small dose (one or two drops) and add it to any meal that calls for ginger.

Essential OilImportant Information


  • * Essential Oils are highly concentrated extracts of medicinal plants, very powerful in their effect and should be used with moderation and great care.

Essential oils used for massage - general instructions for dilution


  • If used other than for ambient diffusion, i.e. for massages, essential oils should always be diluted in a good quality vegetable carrier oil before applying to the skin (i.e. sweet almond, sesame, jojoba, olive oil, etc.).
  • The standard dilution for adults is 1–3% essential oil, or about 3–10 drops of essential oil in 15 ml (= 1 tablespoon) of vegetable oil (20 drops = 1ml).
  • For children, sensitive skin and during pregnancy the dilution should be 0,5%-1% (1-2 drops in 10 ml).
  • For a full bath use for adults 5–15 drops and 3–5 drops for a footbath. The essential oils should be diluted with some carrier oil, a little cream or honey to help them disperse in the water.

Specific oils requiring higher dilution


  • Essential oils of Clove bud, Cinnamon (leaf or bark), Oregano, Savory, Thyme (thymol and borneol) can irritate the skin, use only highly diluted (0.5%—1% dilution).
  • For sensitive skin care should also be taken with Aniseed, Fennel, Lemongrass, Melissa (Balm), Peppermint, Sage, Wintergreen, and sometimes also Basil, Ginger, Lemon and Bitter Orange (1 - 3 % dilution).

Some precautions


  • These oils (except the citrus oils) should also not be used for children under 2 years and during pregnancy.
  • If pregnant avoid in addition: Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Juniper, Sweet Marjoram, and Myrrh.
  • If applying photo-sensitizing essentials oils like Bergamot, Orange, Mandarin or Lemon to your skin (even in dilution) do not expose your skin to direct sun for several hours afterwards (to avoid pigment spots). The furocoumarin free Bergamot is ok.
  • In case of high blood pressure Hyssop, Rosemary, Sage and Thyme (thyme) are contra-indicated; a gentle massage with relaxing essential oils, however, is very beneficial.
  • In case of Epilepsy do not use the essential oils of sweet Fennel, Hyssop, Rosemary and Sage.
  • If you have a medical condition we recommend that you seek the advice of a Maharishi Ayurveda practitioner or aromatherapist.
