Ginger Essential Oil

Ginger essential oil is obtained from the root of the ginger plant, a member of the broader Zingiberaceae family. Traditionally used as a food flavoring and herbal remedy in India and China, it was taken to the Mediterranean as early as the 1st century AD. Ginger essential oil has a warm, spicy aroma. Ginger Vitality™ essential oil has a delicious, spicy flavor and may provide digestive comfort and healthy weight management when taken internally.

*Ginger and Ginger Vitality are the same essential oil.

Diffusing Notes

These are approximate drops.  Adjust recipes to your needs.  If a recipe is too strong for you, add fewer drops.  Do you need more?  Just add more, but no more than 8-12 drops for all of our diffusers with the exception of the Aria diffuser which requires 15-25 drops.

Tip:  When you first begin diffusing, start with less essential oil than listed in the recipes and build to more as desired.  You should give your body time to adjust to the essential oils.  Almost all the Young Living diffusers are ultrasonic which provides a cool-mist humidifier along with the essential oils.  These diffusers are safe to run all day.  Pay attention to the size of the room because the size will impact the intensity of diffusing.  Nebulizers and atomizers are different than ultrasonic diffusers because they do not use water.  For these, note the time limit for diffusing stated on each individual oil bottle.

Oil-Infused Rosemary & Ginger Hair Mask

Envious of the thick, long, healthy-looking hair that you see on social media? Same! Let us help you achieve your influencer hair goals in a natural, sweet-smelling way.

The root of the problem for most unhealthy and breakable hair is, well, your roots. Use this DIY hair mask infused with Rosemary and Ginger to give your scalp a well-deserved treat and get the selfie-ready hair you’ve been searching for.

Ingredients
• 3-4 drops Rosemary essential oil
• 2-3 drops Ginger essential oil
• 2 tablespoons carrier oil, such as coconut, almond, or olive oil

Instructions
1. Begin with clean hair, as leftover product buildup on the hair and scalp will prevent your mask from soaking in fully.
2. Combine the Rosemary and Ginger essential oils with the carrier oil in a small bowl.
3. Grab a comb and begin parting your hair in sections.
4. Apply the mixture from your scalp to your roots using your fingers. You can also use a comb if that is easier to spread the product throughout the hair. Focus mainly on the scalp, allowing the oil to fully saturate the area.
5. Leave the mixture in your hair for 15-30 minutes, then wash as usual.
6. Apply this mask twice per week for best results.

YL tip: This is a great opportunity to play around with other essential oils that are also known for amping up your hair routine. Try replacing the essential oils in this recipe with Cedarwood, Ylang Ylang, Clary Sage, Tea Tree, or Geranium. If you do, let us know which mask combo is your favorite!
