ZINGIBER OFFICINALE
EARTH ELEMENT
HARMONY QI 土

A herbaceous perennial belonging to the Zingiberaceae family, Ginger’s generic name, Zingiber, is derived from the Greek zingiberis, which comes from the Sanskrit name of the spice, singabera. Ancient use is traced to India and China and ended up in prominence in the spice trade of the 1500s.

Ginger is propagated by planting rootstalk cuttings and has been under this type of cultivation for so long that it no longer goes to seed. Harvesting is done simply by lifting the rhizomes from the soil, cleansing them, and drying them in the sun.

Ginger is very high in a substance called “gingerol” which is why it’s so high in antioxidants and is what makes ginger such a powerful anti-inflammatory aid.

Ginger Root imparts a slightly peppery and sweet flavor.
  • Bodily Effect: Ginger Root can relieve pain and ease symptoms of anxiety and depression while having anticancer properties.
  • Emotional Effect: Ginger Root releases serotonin in the brain and helps to maintain blood sugar levels and increases blood flow to the brain, affecting your energy levels and mood.
  • Spiritual Effect: Ginger Root brings luck, purification, protection and healing.
Ginger has the magical properties of love, success, protection, and luck.

"Ginger rituals in abundance and prosperity is magical warding away poverty and inviting in good fortune."
