Ginger Essential Oil, or Zingiber officinale root oil, extracted via steam distillation from the dry roots, strengthens memory and encourages concentration.
Ginger Essential Oil is believed to originate from India and was one of the first spices to arrive in Europe from Asia. Its beneficial properties have been appreciated throughout the centuries, being already mentioned by the Chinese philosopher Confucius, by Dioscorides and in the Koran. The Greeks and Romans also used it in its dual function as medicine and spice. The ancient Egyptians cultivated it and used it in food with the aim of preventing and curbing epidemics. Dioscorides recommended it to activate circulation.
The Essential Oil of Ginger has several properties at the cosmetic level, since it is anti-inflammatory, detoxifying and tonic.

Cautions: Topical use. Avoid contact with your eyes and other sensitive areas. Keep out of the reach of children. Consult your doctor before using during pregnancy, breastfeeding or with any other medical treatments. Some essential oils are sensitive to light, so dont expose skin to the sun after use.

Diffuser: We recommend the use of diffusers without heat, such as the ALQVIMIA Flask, since heat modifies the properties of essential oils. Use a maximum of 10 drops of Essential Oil Preparation in the diffuser.
Bath: dilute a maximum of 10-15 drops of Essential Oil Preparation in a small amount of milk (vegetable or animal), yogurt, honey, salt or Bath Gel. This is because essential oils are not soluble in water and need a vehicle to dissolve in the bath.
Steam Inhalation: apply a maximum of 5 drops of Essential Oil Preparation in a saucepan of hot water with approximately 1-2 liters of water, and perform inhalations covering the head and the saucepan with a towel, to keep the steam for longer.
Sauna: dilute a maximum of 2 drops of the Essential Oil Preparation for every 500ml used in the sauna.
