Ginger is a flowering plant that belongs to the family of Zingiberaceae, which also includes turmeric (Curcuma longa), cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum), and galangal. The root of the plant has been used in cuisines and for therapeutic purposes for thousands of years. It is especially popular in Asian food for its ability to aid digestion of high protein foods such as meats.

Ginger is indigenous to Island Southeast Asia and was first domesticated by the Austronesian peoples. During the Austronesian expansion, it was transported with them and then it spread as far as Hawaii. Being one of the first spices exported from Asia, it was used by ancient Greeks and Romans. Moreover, Ginger does not exist in wild state because it is a pure cultigen which means that it is man-made plant.

The leaves of the ginger plant were also used to weave mats. Other than this, it held great importance for Austronesians as they used it in rituals for healing and asking protection from spirits. During the expansion of Austronesians, Ginger was carried by them as canoe plants in their voyages. Before contact with any other civilizations, Austronesians introduced ginger to the Pacific Islands.

The name Ginger has been derived from a Greek word ‘zingiberis’. It is used for various purposes such as inflammation, menstrual pain, etc. In addition, it has been used as a food preservative as it helps in preventing the growth of harmful bacteria. Due to its flavor and its digestive property, it is also used as a spice. Since it was a common and profitable spice, it was traded to Europe and India. India is now the largest producer of the Ginger plant today.

Taken from the underground stem of the ginger plant, Organic Ginger Oil is extracted from the root of the Ginger through steam distillation.  Due to the warmth it provides and the soothing properties it possesses Ginger essential oil is quite beneficial to have.
