Tis the season of spring break! Whether you’re jetting off somewhere warm or prepping for inbound tourists, staying healthy and taking your vitamins is a must.
If you’re in need of a boost or even a palette cleanser to compliment your spring cleaning fury, ginger is here to help.
Often overlooked, ginger can actually be quite useful. Not only is it a source of flavor for lots of green dishes, it has medicinal properties, too.
Here are just a few:
-Chewing on ginger can cure nausea or travel sickness
-Known to prevent colds and the flu
-Anti-inflammatory properties: if you suffer from joint pain or need to release tension, add ginger essential oil to your bath
-Expectorant: add some to a cup of tea when you’re struggling with respiratory problems or have excess mucus in your lungs
-Immune system booster: ginger can decrease the presence of bacterial viruses
