When I was a kid I never asked why I should drink Ginger Ale while sick with the flu. I just did it. I mentioned to Shana that I was going to go get some Ginger Ale last week after I caught a 24 hour bug. I knew I needed to hydrate and so I was going to do what I always did.
What I didn’t realize was the purpose of drinking Ginger Ale. It use to contain ginger, which helped with nausea. Unfortunately ginger is no longer in the ingredients and sugar has taken over. When I’m not feeling well I especially want to consume items with a purpose, not the taste. Therefore, I will make my own if there is a next time.
Ginger essential oil has long been known for it’s ability to help reduce occasional nausea and was Shana’s best friend during his first trimester of pregnancy. It’s in the Digestive Blend that we love, but is great on its own as well.
Practical uses for Ginger essential oil:
- Use during a long car ride along windy roads
- Apply over lower abdomen for a soothing massage.
- May help reduce occasional nausea.
- Use one to two drops in place of whole ginger in favorite recipes.
- Diffuse to help create a sense of equilibrium.
- Diffuse for added energy in late afternoons.
Emotionally, Ginger essential oil is The Oil of Empowerment. Ginger powerfully persuades individuals to be fully present and participate in life. It teaches that to be successful in life one must be fully committed to it.
Ginger is also found in the Metabolic Blend and the Digestion Blend.
