Botanical family: Zingerberaceae

CHEMISTRY & SAFETY
CHEMISTRY: Ginger consists of over half Sesquiterpenes (zingiberene, alpha-curcumene, farnesene) which are larger molecules that don’t absorb into the skin as quickly as monoterpenes. Blending with a citrus oil (with d-limonene) will increase the absorption of Ginger.
SAFETY: FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY. Keep out of reach of children. Always dilute essential oils before applying to the skin and keep away from mucous membranes. If the oil is past its “use by” date or stored improperly, it may cause irritation and lose therapeutic value.
