Properties : Ginger is a powerful antioxidant (it contains 40 different antioxidant compounds which fight free radicals and slow down cellular aging). It warms up, stimulates blood circulation, cleanses skin pores and lights up the complexion. It stimulates hair growth. Internally, it is a digestive, warming, circulatory tonic and catalyst (promotes the absorption of plants with which it is combined). It is also a good anti-emotional (calm nausea and prevents vomiting).

Plant powders' uses: In capsules, in food, in smoothie, in pastilles and energy balls, then externally (cosmetics, ointments, poultices). Unless exceptional, plant powders are not soluble in water, although several molecules they contain. For better results, it is preferable to extract these molecules in water, alcohol or in oil (certain molecules are fat -soluble). For more information, the Schools Flowers offers an introductory workshop and an à la carte course on the manufacture of therapeutic products.
We advise to consult a health professional before using medicinal plants, especially if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or under medication.
