Today we are pleased to present a rare gift of Nature whose amazing benefits are not yet well known. This is Ginger hydrolate!
Ginger was among the first oriental spices to reach Europe. Native to Southeast Asia, ginger is considered in Ayurveda as a must cure because it increases Agni (digestive fire) and decreases Ama (toxins).
In aromatherapy it is found mainly as an essential oil. However, there is also a far less known… floral water! Indeed, after distillation of the rhizome of this tropical perennial, a hydrolate is obtained whose fine herbaceous scent and warm spicy taste will seduce you.
Its benefits on our body
The Ginger hydrolate stimulates the appetite, digestion, immune and sexual desire while fighting against stomach problems. On the other hand, it relieves pain, inflammation, spasms and coughing. In addition, Ginger hydrolate fights infections and allergies. In cosmetics, it helps reduce dark circles and tones the skin and strengthens hair.
Its blessings on our mind
The Ginger hydrolate warms the heart and lightens the mind. It is ideal to dispel guilt, shame and insecurity.
Drink a cup of warm water with a teaspoon of ginger hydrolate and a teaspoon of basil hydrosol.
