Ginger essential oil of Vagrimex

When used topically at low dilutions or in a diffuser, Ginger essential oil can help to ease nausea and motion sickness. Since Ginger Oil is so strong, VAGRIMEX do not recommend that anyone without a formal education in herbalism or aromatherapy take it without being under the care of a qualified aromatherapy practitioner (instead, try Ginger Tea or Crystallized Ginger)

Safety Information: Ginger Oil is slightly phototoxic. [Julia Lawless, The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Essential Oils (Rockport, MA: Element Books, 1995), 236.] Do not use if the area of application will be exposed to sunlight for 24 hours due to its phototoxicity.

Essential Oil Safety by Robert Tisserand does not indicate any special precautions when using Ginger Oil. [Robert Tisserand, Essential Oil Safety (United Kingdom: Churchill Livingstone, 1995), 206.]

Marge Clark of Nature's Gift mentions that Ginger CO2 extracted from the fresh root can be stronger and more sensitizing, and I agree.

General Safety Information: Do not take any essential oils internally without consultation from a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. Do not apply undiluted essential oils, absolutes, CO2s or other concentrated essences onto the skin. If you are pregnant, epileptic, have liver damage, have cancer, or have any other medical problem, use essential oils only under the proper guidance of a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. Use extreme caution when using oils with children and give children only the gentlest oils at extremely low doses. It is safest to consult a qualified aromatherapy practitioner before using essential oils with children. A skin patch test should be conducted prior to using an essential oil that you've never used before. Instructions on conducting a skin patch test and more safety information can be found by visiting the Essential Oil Safety Information page.
