Profile

Zingiber officinale is a tall, erect perennial herb that grows to a height of nearly 4 ft. It has narrow spear-shaped leaves and scepter-like white or yellow flowers, grown directly from the root. The plant is easily propagated, by dividing the root or rhizomes, after flowering. Ginger Essential Oil is derived from the peelings of the Ginger root / bulb. The peelings are steam distilled to produce the essential oil. The color of the oil is pale-yellow to light amber. Ginger Essential Oil has a warm, fresh, woody-spicy scent.

It is suggested that Ginger is indigenous to South China, and quickly spread across the Asian continent and surrounding islands. Traditional dried ginger was shipped into Europe and the UK from the growing countries as a dried spice. The leftovers from spice grinding were then distilled for oil production. In Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine it is one of the most used ingredients.

FACT:  The vast spread of Ginger was due to spice trades in the SE Asia Trade Ports. Ginger was traded and exported to West Africa and the Caribbean, as well as to Europe via India in the first century AD. Thus, allowing India to be one of the largest producers of ginger.

AUROMA QUALITY

AUROMA Essential Oils are the highest quality essential oils available in the world today. Each oil is from an individual farmer and from a particular year’s harvest. As AUROMA knows each of the Farmers, they guarantee the authenticity of each oil. Just to be certain, they analyze each oil using the latest state-of-the-art GC-MS technology, which can detect impurities to one part per billion. Yes! AUROMA represents the best there is in Essential Oils. We can supply the following documentation: Certificates of Analysis and Safety Data Sheets (SDS)

To meet the stringent demands of the professional aromatherapist, AUROMA has drafted the following seven requirements that an essential oil needs to meet so it can be used with confidence:

  1. BIO-TYPE: Not only does an oil have to come from a defined botanical species, but from a particular genetic strain.
  2. CHEMO-TYPE: The same botanical species can often produce completely different constituents.
  3. GEO-TYPE: Oils from a particular area are often of superior quality. Examples are Rose Oil Bulgarian or Sandalwood East Indian.
  4. COMPLETE OR WHOLE: The oil should come from a single distillation and should not be rectified.
  5. WILD OR ORGANIC: Where possible, AUROMA always selects the wild growing plants for distillation. When wild types are not available, AUROMA commissions farmers who do not use pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Certified Organic options are available.
  6. EX STILL: AUROMA distills small lots of expensive oils in-house and advises farmers on distillation methods.
  7. ANALYYSIS: Oils are tested by AUROMA in Australia with the most advanced state-of- the-art equipment in the world.
