During cold temperatures and nausea that often accompanies bugs, Ginger is the perfect go to! Zingiber officinale, is known for it’s warming, spicy and dynamic qualities. It is great for any problem that does not deal well with external moisture- like, diarrhea, excess mucus, rheumatism or that “damp, can’t get warm” feeling.
It is and analgesic, anti- inflammatory, anti -bacterial, antispasmodic, expectorant, and can assist in relieving gas and warming the area by increasing blood flow. Though it is non toxic it can be sensitive on skin, so use in low dilutions.
Of course you can always use the original root as well, putting a few slices in your tea or alone in hot water to sip! I like to add ginger root to my morning smoothies for it’s anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties!
