I am a nut for ginger.
I love the taste, but did you know that ginger has amazing health benefits?
Here are a few other things I found out a while ago while researching the health benefits of ginger:
*Ginger essential oil helps ease sore muscles. Place freshly grated ginger in a cotton bag and toss the bag into your bathtub filled with hot water. Let sit for a few minutes to release the oils in the ginger and then enjoy a relaxing soak.
*Ginger tea can relieve period cramps.
*Crystalized or pickled ginger works better than store-bought medicines for motion sickness according to Brigham Young University research.
*Ginger works great as a body scrub. Mix 4 ounces Epsom salt, 1 tablespoon lime juice, and 1 tablespoon chopped ginger; microwave at 15-second intervals until warm. Apply scrub all over, then rinse. The ginger gives you a healthy glow, while the lime's vitamin C smooths skin.
And here is another whole list of ginger benefits! I found this list here.
