History of Ginger
Ginger’s widespread roots trace back thousands of years to India, China and Java, where it was used to “warm” the body, and in cooking. Thanks to Marco Polo's adventurous spirit, ginger became the spice in demand in Europe and eventually around the globe. Stimulating for the spirit, ginger oil has sensual undertones that ignite the passions and spicy overtones that give a lift to energy and mood.
