Ginger & the year of the Tiger

The year of the (golden) Tiger has started,
and still cold and snow are falling in.

In order to harmonize those 2 currents, I suggest the essential oil of Ginger (Zingiber officinalis).

Tis spice is well known in the Asian cuisine for its digestif virtues.
Similar indications for the essential oil: constipation, flatulence, nausea (except for pregnant women).
Plus it brings help with toothache, rheumatism, diarrhea and bronchitis.

However to recommend it to you today I rather look at its biochemical components from a Traditional Chinese Medicine point of view (as taught in the phyto-energetics of the French Shiatsu Institute of Michel ODOUL

It carries Metal energy (to which the tiger belongs) as well as Fire (which controls the Metal).
The first one to protect you by stimulating your immune defenses, the latter to "heat you up" (for which it is known as an aphrodisiac for men).

Have 1 drop on a piece of sugar, a coffee spoon of honey or any vegetal oil, 3 times a day for 3 days (or 5 days if indeed you'll suffer from a light constipation).

carpe diem
