Ginger is a very warming and stimulating oil. It is useful during cold weather and for a pre or post exercise massage. It is also great for nausea hence a good oil to use when travelling.
For a warming, stimulating bath in cold weather, blend 2 drops of Ginger, 3 drops of Orange and 1 drop of Patchouli in a teaspoon of Coconut oil and add to the warm water.
Ginger is also a useful addition to massage blends, particularly before or after exercise. Try 2 drops of Ginger, 1 drop of Black Pepper and 1 drop of Marjoram blended with 10ml of Grapeseed oil, massage muscle areas thoroughly.
If you are feeling nauseous from travelling of over indulgence, drop two drops of ginger on a cotton ball and smell at regular intervals.
