This week we are focusing on doTERRA Ginger Oil.
Hot, spicy, earthy, and sweet, Ginger is the world’s most widely cultivated spice and people have been enjoying its many benefits for over 5,000 years. A relative of cardamom and turmeric, ginger is native to Asia, where it’s popularly used as digestive tonic and a featured ingredient in curries, soups, and stir fries. Traditional Chinese health practices suggests ginger for its warming and stimulating effects, while Ayurvedic practices focus on ginger’s digestive benefits.
In ancient Greece, people ate thin slices of ginger wrapped in bread to aid digestion. In Europe, this idea evolved into grating the ginger rhizome into the bread dough, and gingerbread was born. During the Middle Ages, gingerbread guilds controlled the production of this valuable sweet, which was enjoyed for its flavor as well as its ability to support healthy digestion.*
