Ginger is a spice obtained from 10-month old roots of a perennial tropical plant original to Asia. Ginger is well known for its warming and carminative properties and is widely used in Ayurveda. The herb is also a popular flavoring in many Indian, Chinese and Malaysian cuisines.

As a member of the Zingiberaceae family, ginger is related to cardamom and turmeric. These spices are frequently used together in traditional Asian dishes, most notably in masala spice mixes, tandoori seasoning blends and curries.


Safety: Do not take the essential oil of ginger internally unless supervised by a health professional. Ginger should not be used in those who have peptic ulcers. Consult your health care provider before beginning use of any herb.
