Ginger essential oil has a sweet, spicy, woody and warm scent. It is a warming essential oil that works as an antiseptic, laxative, tonic and stimulant. Of the 115 different chemical components found in ginger root, the therapeutic benefits come from gingerols, the oily resin from the root that acts as a highly potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. Ginger essential oil is also made up of about 90 percent sesquiterpenes, which are defensive agents that have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
