Ginger is a sweet-spicy, warming and earthy essential oil and is pale amber to amber in colour. Our ginger is grown in West Africa, and is transported to the UK for distillation, producing an excellent quality essential oil. There are many other sources around the world, as Ginger grows easily in tropical and sub-tropical regions and its roots are widely used as a spice. This prized UK-distilled ginger oil is extracted from cells just beneath the epidermis of the rhizome of well-dried ginger.
