The Plant

Ginger is native to Asia and is now propagated worldwide.  Zingiber officinale is a perennial plant which will grow green stalks up to 4 feet fall.   Ginger prefers partial shade, warmth, and moist soil.  It can be grown indoors if the outdoors are too cool.  White or yellow flowers will grow on the green stalk and will often have purple specks or streaks.  It is the root which is used in culinary and medicinal purposes and resembles a hand covered in paper.  After the root dries it will look brown on the outside and white or yellow on the inside.  Harvest plants that are at least 5 months old and after the leaves have died.

    Ginger is such a wonderful herb, and can be used for so many things!! I LOVE drinking ginger tea and I think the spicy flavor gives a nice kick to it. :) I didn’t know it could help with Bronchitis – I’ll definitely remember that in case I contract it again! But of course, with all of your amazing products, I plan on building my immune system up so that doesn’t happen. 😉 Thank you for showing me ways to use it and which of your products contain it in this post!
