25 Days of Christmas: Day Four

Ginger oil is a popular essential oil with a warm, energizing aroma. It is steam distilled from the rhizome of the ginger plant and is part of the Zingiberaceae family. Ginger was used anciently in India and China and was taken to the Mediterranean as early the 1st century AD. Ginger is now found throughout the world, and Ginger essential oil is found in many homes.

Ginger essential oil benefits include its topical and aromatic uses, whether the oil is being diffused during a long road trip or applied during a massage. Its spicy, invigorating aroma also makes it popular in the perfume industry. Young Living's Ginger Vitality essential oil has a multitude of dietary and culinary uses.

Clove oil (Syzygium aromaticum) has a spicy, warm scent that’s instantly familiar because of its connection to fall and winter holidays. To produce Clove essential oil, the flower bud and plant stem are steam distilled, and the rich, strong oil that results from this process contains eugenol. This powerful constituent makes it a potent essential oil, and Clove oil uses include topical applications such as massage oils and personal care products. Additionally, Clove’s pleasant scent makes it a popular oil for aromatic uses. Young Living's Clove Vitality essential oil can be used for baking, cooking, and many more applications.

And, who doesn't love the warm and comforting scent of Cinnamon? Cinnamon Vitality essential oil can also be used in the kitchen! I love to add a few drops to homemade apple pie and spiced cider for a more robust flavor. Order your oils here.
