Today, most of us think of ginger as that spicy root added to curry and cookies, the one that gives foods a little kick without overwhelming the senses. Not so long ago, ginger held an esteemed place in our medicine cabinets and apothecaries with good reason. Modern scientists who’ve delved into ginger’s active properties realize our ancestors were onto something. Ginger’s soul-satisfying fire does more than offer up good flavor. It eases inflammation and helps energies move on so many levels.

Come with us on this look into ginger’s properties in this edition of The Practical Herbalist’s Herbal Folio series. We’ll look deeper into ginger’s medicinal properties, the conditions it best treats, and the cautions you’ll want to heed.

Take a tour through ginger’s history, learning more about its folklore, mythic, and magic properties, then discover a variety of ways you can use ginger to care for hearth, home, and your animal companions. Try your hand at making ginger medicine, or stir up one of the recipes we offer to get you started incorporating ginger into your life.
