Great against inflammation and for digestion

Ginger is a POWERFUL natural medicine and a HOT oil. (Be careful to apply it undiluted to your skin... I once made that mistake and had a red skin rash.) I use it in conjunction with other anti-inflammatory oils to ease any joint pain, but always DILUTED with a carrier oil. I am AMAZED at how FAST it took away my knee pain without pain killers... I am so impressed by the healing powers of essential oils... I also ingest 2 drops of ginger oil combined with other anti - inflammatory oils in gelatine capsules as needed...
