Aromatherapy Benefits of Ginger and Orange 🍊✨
Besides being an essential herb in folk medicine for thousands of years, fresh ginger is widely used as a spice. Gingerols are the major compounds present in ginger and are renowned for their contribution to human health and nutrition. Ginger essential oil is extracted from the rhizome of Zingiber officinale through distillation. This aromatic oil, nicknamed the oil of the empowerment, has volatile constituents such as zingiberene, phellandrene, and camphene that give it unique aromatherapeutic properties. Ginger essential oil has stimulating and warming effects, which can improve concentration while soothing and reducing feelings of stress, worry, lethargy, agitation, dizziness, and fatigue.
Obtained from the rind (or sometimes flowers and leaves), Citrus sinensis through cold pressing, the orange essential oil has a sweet, fresh, citrus scent due to its unique volatile oil composition of limonene (87.9 - 92.5 %), Myrcene (`2.0 %) and linalool (1.2%). Like any other citrus essential oil, one of the most well-known therapeutic effects of sweet Orange is its effectiveness in calming stress and anxiety. The 2012 study showed that inhaling the aroma of sweet orange essential oil helps relieve depression, anxiety, and other mood-related disorders. In another study, researchers revealed orange essential oil could change activity in the prefrontal cortex of the brain- the area responsible for decision-making, personality, and social behavior. The participants of this study revealed their emotional state after breathing the oils, using words like "comfortable," "relaxed," and "natural."
Moreover, the orange oil aroma helps energize the body. A small-scale study suggests that smelling orange essential oil can improve exercise performance, reducing running times and increasing lung function. Also, orange oil aromatherapy seems to relieve short-term pain in sore muscles and joints due to its powerful anti-inflammatory properties.
