Used often in cooking, the flavor of #ginger is hot and spicy, adding flavor both to Asian cuisine and such universal holiday favorites as gingerbread and ginger snaps. Ginger comes from rhizome, a subterranean plant stalk. Being so prominent in culinary products, it may come as no surprise that ginger serves the digestive tract, helping to relieve occasional nausea, motion sickness, upset stomach, and occasional indigestion. You may, of course, take ginger internally for this benefit, apply topically or inhale directly. The spice may also help relieve joint pain.
- To relieve upset stomach, add 1-2 drops to your drinking water.
- To alleviate nausea, place a drop in your hands, cup around your nose, and inhale deeply.
- Support digestion by applying 1-2 drops topically to the abdomen or to the soles of the feet.
- Add to sweet or savory dishes for increased flavor
