Hi Sarah! We only offer one type of Ginger (not to be confused with Gingergrass which is a very different oil). Ginger can be diluted and applied to legs and ankles for swelling.

Hi Anne! We recommend a 3% dilution rate for general topical use.

3% = 18 drops of essential oil in 2 Tbsp of carrier oil

Here also is an article on how to dilute: http://bit.ly/2vSH4HZ

I HAVE PURCHASED GINGER OIL FOR USE AS A MASSAGE FOR LYMPHEDEMA OF MY LEGS. I READ THE INSTRUCTIONS AND WAS TOLD TO USE A CARRIER OIL. PLEASE TELL ME WHAT A CARRIER OIL IS. I AM TOTALLY UNFAMILIAR WITH THAT TERM. THANK YOU.

Hi Sherry! If you’re planning on using the oil topically, a carrier oil would be needed to dilute the oil. Carrier oils aren’t necessary for diffusing essential oils.
