AROMATIC CONSIDERATIONS: Gingergrass is a close relative of lemongrass and a distant cousin of palmarosa. These family connections give a glimpse of its aroma. Gingergrass has a gentle, spicy aroma with marvelous earth tones. Just when you think you have experienced all the layers of the aroma, a hint of rose surfaces, calming the nerves and raising the spirits. I love gingergrass.

EMOTIONAL – SPIRITUAL – MENTAL ASPECTS: The aroma of gingergrass makes me want to smile and forget about petty annoyances. Gingergrass lifts the spirits and reduces feeling of being stressed to the limits of endurance. This oil is energizing in a mild and pleasant way. Gingergrass is said to be an aphrodisiac.

PHYSICAL ASPECT: The main action of gingergrass is on the circulation. It encourages blood flow to any area of the body to which it is applied. This action, and the anti-inflammatory properties of this essential oil, make it an excellent choice for massaging sore muscles and relieving stiffness in joints. Gingergrass, diluted and massaged in, is useful for headaches that originate in tense muscles in the neck or upper back.
Gingergrass is also used for colds and allergies to relieve sinus congestion and soothe the throat.

CAUTIONS: Gingergrass may cause irritation to sensitive skin if used undiluted
