The spicy ginger root has been used for centuries in foods, teas, and healing. What you may not know is that it offers help for those of us who sometimes procrastinate or lack self-confidence and drive.
Here is the easy formula for a ginger bath that will both warm your body and boost your vitality:
Simply sprinkle 5 drops essential oil of ginger in a tub filled with warm water. Soak for several minutes to absorb the benefits of ginger.
Here’s why ginger is an energy-boosting ally:
Ginger strengthens the yang energy of the Kidneys and the Will. Traditionally associated with the astrological planet Mars–a symbol of force and virility–this dynamic, fiery essence activates will-power, stimulates initiative, and restores determination. With a concomitant action on the Heart and the Mind, it can in addition help to boost confidence and morale, particularly in those with poor vitality.
Ginger oil is indicated for those who have clear plans and good intentions, but who lack the personal drive and optimism to manifest initiative and take real or immediate action. Ginger oil is the ideal catalyst of the Will, invoking and enhancing their vital fire. Tapping this, the source of all action, ginger can restore the exhilaration of achievement.
