Not many people are keen on grating fresh ginger into recipes as it may leave behind some of the stocky substance. Ginger essential oil is therefore a very handy substitute for cooking with ginger.Â
Ginger oil can be used in baking such as banana breads, ginger biscuits, fruit pies and so forth. It can also be added to tea with a slice of lemon.
The health benefits of ginger essential oil are also plenty. Ginger is known to aid with nausea, sore gut and cramps. It also reliefs the symptoms of bloating and discomfort of the gut.
Ginger oil can also be used in a diffuser to create a spicy aroma in the house.
The ideal storage of essential oils is to keep it refrigerated, as the fridge keeps the components that make up the oils at their optimal levels. If you donâ€™t have space in the fridge, you can keep it in a cool, dark place. Essential oils have a shelf life of one to five years. You should however replace essential oils after three years to gain the most benefits out of the essential oils.
