Newly sourced from Madagascar, doTERRA Ginger essential oil is derived from the fresh rhizome of the ginger plant—the subterranean stalk of a plant that shoots out the root system. A featured ingredient in many Asian dishes, ginger has a hot, fragrant flavor and aroma when prepared. In Western tradition, ginger is most often used in sweets such as when used in gingerbread and ginger snaps, giving them their unique ginger smell. Inhalation may ease nausea. Ginger essential oil can also be applied topically or inhaled for a soothing aroma.
