Ginger Oil

Zingiber officinale

Harvest season is over and the yields this year are 15% lower than last year. Due to the high demand for green ginger, farmers are opting to stay away from dry ginger. This has reduced the supply of oleoresin quality ginger this year. Low carryover stock and yield have together contributed to an increase in price. There is expectation for the price to rise further.


Ginger oil is an essential oil derived from the ginger plant (Zingiber officinale). It is typically extracted from the rhizomes or underground stems of the ginger plant through a process known as steam distillation or solvent extraction. Ginger oil has a warm, spicy, and earthy aroma, which is characteristic of fresh ginger.

Here are some common uses and benefits of ginger oil:

  1. Aromatherapy: Ginger oil is often used in aromatherapy for its invigorating and warming scent. Inhaling its aroma can help reduce feelings of nausea and improve mental alertness and focus.
  2. Digestive Health: Ginger oil has a long history of use in traditional medicine for its digestive benefits. It can help alleviate symptoms of indigestion, bloating, and gas when diluted and applied topically to the abdomen or used in aromatherapy.
  3. Nausea Relief: Ginger oil is known for its anti-nausea properties. It is often used to alleviate motion sickness, morning sickness during pregnancy, and nausea caused by other factors.
  4. Pain Relief: Ginger oil contains compounds with anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain-relieving) properties. It can be applied topically to sore muscles and joints to provide relief from pain and inflammation.
  5. Immune Support: Ginger oil may help support the immune system due to its potential antimicrobial and antioxidant properties.
  6. Hair and Scalp Health: Some people use ginger oil to promote hair and scalp health. It may help stimulate hair growth and reduce dandruff when applied to the scalp in a carrier oil.
  7. Skin Care: Ginger oil contains antioxidants that can help protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. It may also have anti-aging properties when used in skincare products.

It’s important to note that ginger oil is highly concentrated, so it should be used with caution. Always dilute it with a carrier oil before applying it to the skin, and perform a patch test to check for any adverse reactions. Additionally, pregnant individuals and people with certain medical conditions should consult with a healthcare professional before using ginger oil for therapeutic purposes.

As with any essential oil, it’s essential to purchase high-quality ginger oil from reputable sources to ensure its purity and effectiveness.
