Ginger Root Essential Oil
Botanical name: Zingiber officinalis
Extraction method: The Carbon Dioxide (CO2) extraction method yields more aromatic compounds from ginger than any other distillation process. CO2 is pressurized to become a liquid at a low temperature, which then acts as a solvent to extract oil from plants. After that, the extraction vessel is brought back to normal temperature. The liquefied CO2 rapidly converts back to a gaseous state, leaving behind high quality essential oil that is free of solvents.
Description: A common ingredient in the kitchen many parts of the world, Ginger is a herb that grows to about 1 meter (3-4 feet) in height. Whether you choose to savor a hot cup of ginger tea during the colder months of the year, sprinkle it in soups, stir-fry dishes or in baked goods and desserts (pumpkin pies with ginger - yum!), there are many delectable ways to enjoy this tuberous rhizome.
Blends well with: Bergamot, Cardamom, Black Pepper, Spearmint, Orange, Sandalwood, Ylang-ylang and other spice oils.
