Zingiber officinale


Ginger is cultivated in many tropical and subtropical regions of the world, but it might have its origin in the pacific islands.

Ginger is a flowering plant in the family zigiberaceae. It grows about 0.5 to over 1.5 meters high.

Ginger is grown in India, Australia, China and South America, among other places. It was introduced to Europe around the 9th century and replaced the rare pepper as a spice. But ginger is more than just a spice, it offers a number of incredible health benefits as well. It improves digestion and helps with pain, nausea and motion sickness.

Ginger delights the senses with its wonderful fresh and spicy fragrance. As a scrub, it provides gentle exfoliation and leaves the skin incredibly smooth and soft.
