Description

Description

Ginger root is the edible part of the ginger plant, which thrives in India, Africa and Indonesia. Like turmeric, cardamom and galanga, it belongs to the Zingiberaceae family and is a distant relative of the banana. Although the ginger plant grows up to a metre tall, it’s the root which is used in food, medicine and cosmetics.

After being harvested, the roots can be used fresh, distilled to obtain essential oil, or dried and ground into a powder. Ginger contains a substance called zingiberene, which is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory and therefore cleanses and soothes the skin (despite what its warming effect might make us believe).

This decoction is made with fresh roots which are boiled in water until half of the water evaporates, creating a concentrated liquid extract.
