Gingergrass is native to India and commonly cultivated in many countries including Nepal. The essential oil has many uses in the home including use in insect repellant blends, as an addition to invigorating massage oils, soaps, cosmetics, skincare and moisturizing lotions.
The aroma of this zesty essential oil is glorious with hints of rose, geranium, mellow citrus, and a coolness that is sometimes used to soften more intense essential oils. Gingergrass is uplifting, purifying and a wonderful addition to blends created for supporting a balanced, grounded perspective of healthy well being.
It is distilled from the aerial tops of the plant.
