Ginger Root

Ginger (Zingiber Officinale), is a common spice that was considered a luxury more than 5,000 years ago! The Indians and ancient Chinese used the root of Ginger as a tonic to treat common ailments. Although Ginger originated in Southeast Asia, it was widely cultivated and grown in other countries. By the 1st century, traders had taken Ginger into the Mediterranean regions. Eventually, it became a popular spice in Rome. Later, the use of Ginger declined once the Roman Empire fell. As a result, Ginger's worth increased, and was commonly used to make sweet delicacies in Medieval Times and has been commonly traded along with other spices throughout history.

How To Make A Ginger Compress

Ginger Tea Compress Necessities 

You will need:

6-8 oz. Fresh Ginger Root
2-4 qt. Water
1-2 Cloths
Rubber Band
Large Stock Pot


Bring the water to boil in a large stock pot. Turn off the heat.
Grate the ginger root onto a square cloth approximately 12 inches by 12 inches.
Pull the corners of the cloth together once the ginger is fully grated and wrap with a rubber band.
After the water has cooled, but not too cooled, use your compress cloths (thick washcloths or towel) by dipping them into the ginger solution and wringing out most of the water. Let cool before applying to affected area.

Additional Directions:

Once applied, cover compress with thick towels or a heating pad and towels to keep the heat in.
It is best to have two cloths so you can alternate them. Leave towels on area for 5-10 minutes each time.
The skin will become bright red as the treatment progresses.
Compress for approximately ½ hour to 45 minutes, not to exceed more than 2 consecutive days.
