Plant description

Latin Name : Zingiber officinale
English Name : Ginger
French Name : Gingembre
Family : Zingiberaceae
Origin : Madagascar

History and Origin

Ginger is a perennial plant from Asia. Its rhizome has been used as a condiment, food and medicine for more than 5000 years. Ginger was one of the first spices brought to Europe by arabic merchants, more than a century before our age. It was named “zenj”, which also meant the people of the East coast of Africa, region from which ginger was imported and origin of the word “Zanzibar”. Ginger has also been transplanted to South America. Today, it is cultivated almost all around the world. Writings from Dioscoride and the Roman Pliny the elder mention the use of ginger in anti-poison preparations, and as an aphrodisiac, antiseptic and carminative. In China, sailors masticate chunks of ginger to prevent sea sickness and nausea. Women also chew on ginger, but during pregnancy, to prevent morning nausea. The essential oil is used diluted to treat rheumatisms, arthritis and muscular pain in compresses or in massage. Here is an abstract of an english veterinarian treaty from the School of Salerne:

“For cold stomach, kidneys and lungs,
Burning ginger opposes with passion,
It quenches thirst, revives and excites the brain,
In the old, it awakens a young and renewed love.”

Energetic and Emotional Effect

Ginger helps the realization of our Sacred Self. Activating and general tonic, it enhances self confidence. On the root and base chakras: consolidates the vital force. The aphrodisiac property of ginger opens the first chakra and liberates denied sexual energies. Applied on the plexus, ginger activates the forehead and heart chakras, easing the liberation of withheld emotions through the throat chakra. Ginger will help “digest” new realities. Symbolically, ginger corresponds to the conscious level. Among a group, it will ease communication. Combined with Ravintsara on the frontal chakra, it stimulates inspiration, cooperation, and concentration. For emotional healing, meditate with ginger, black spruce and balsam poplar applied on your base chakra and golden rod on the forehead.
