Ginger essential oil

[Zingiber officinale]









Used as a domestic spice in the East for decades. For issues like malaria, toothache and bacterial dysentery, but used as a digestive aid in the West. Used as a spice to warm up the stomach, and stimulate the circulatory system.  Fresh ginger can be used in cookery, baking and in warm drinks. It is popular today in hot chocolate drinks. Experimenting with fresh ginger can bring great joy, plus it comes in very handy in colder weather.

Ginger success incantation;

“Fire, flame; within the cold,

I will not have my fortune sold!

I make my way, I move towards,

I raise the heat; head these words.


Warm my life, wake me again,

Changed, not who I was back then,

As the leaves wonder and fall,

I rise to destiny’s call!”



The spicy sex and fertility oil blend

Olive oil x10 ml

Grapeseed oil x10 ml

Ginger essential oil x5 drops

Rose essential oil x3 drops


Place a few drops across the lower abdomen, place a few drops on the centre of your upper stomach area and place your right hand; and your partner’s right hand in this spot for a while; feel the warmth there, the love, the energy, the connection of power. Then enjoy the rest of your night. If you’d like you can place the oil in an oil burner; DO THIS ESPECIALLY IF: you might be pregnant already, it’s the safest way to use oils in pregnancy, and as always check the safety of any oils before you use them!



Money oil

Sunflower oil [helps when calling sun deities] x10 ml

Ginger essential oil x5 drops


Blend together. Place upon your wrists and draw a money drawing symbol on your forehead before opening your circle. This symbol could be a sun symbol, a sigil, an ogham sign or a rune. Be careful the oil avoids your eyes as you place it upon your forehead; not much is needed.



Empowering ginger tea

Grate fresh ginger into a mug, pour over hot water. You can add honey or sugar. You can try this with fruit juices, depending on what you like best. You may like to add a regular tea bag or try a herbal tea bag that you have in the kitchen cupboard.
