Ginger, a familiar ingredient at the dinner table, is popular for warming up the body.
The characteristic components of ginger essential oil are gingerol and zingiberene. Other ingredients include citronellal.
Gingerol improves blood circulation and warms the body, while gingiberen and citronellal have deodorizing and appetite stimulating effects. Ginger is known for its warming effect on the body, and the essential oil has the same effect.
By taking in the ingredients through the skin through aromatic baths or massage, it promotes blood circulation and warms the body.
The difference between ginger essential oil and foreign ginger essential oil is the aroma. Ginger essential oil has a freshness reminiscent of lemon, but it also contains limonene, a component often found in citrus fruits. Ginger essential oil is steam distilled from fresh ginger and has the aroma of freshly grated ginger.
