Ginger is a central and mythical foundation stone. The name of its botanical family is even: the Zingiberaceae. Deeply divided leaves rise from simple rods. One single leaf per stem and for a good reason: they are actually petioles. Indeed, the stem remains underground. It's called a rhizome and that is the part which is preserved, milled as a spice or distilled to produce the essential oil. This rhizome looks halfway between the potato, Jerusalem artichoke and the burning ashes.
So, much divided leaves -much like Venetian blinds- and flowers growing like small garden torches. The flower spikes resemble funny spruce cones that have decided to grow backwards and wear unexpected colours due to their psychedelic aspect.
There is almost no need to present the myths and legends about Ginger as this plant has been the backbone of major traditional medicines like Ayurveda (3,000 year-old papers) and Chinese Medicine (quoted by Confucius already in the 7th century BC). In Europe, Dioscorides already described it glowingly in the first century.
It has become almost a local traditional taste. How many traditional dishes and desserts are made of ginger in Europe? Scandinavian speculoos, Hansel and Gretel's gingerbread ... Besides, the excess of food calls for Ginger - it is not a bad thing to have it in your bag when you visit friends who eat substantial amounts of food. One drop before the meal, off the back of the hand and probably a few drops afterwards.
Still, Ginger resonates in the ear of all as a traditional aphrodisiac. Senegalese women hang rhizomes to their husbands' belts if they don't show enough stallion courage. Nostradamus himself had made it the centrepiece of a plant mixture after which was highly recommendable: If one did not do "the thing" after taking this powerful remedy, they were supposed to die in horrible convulsions.
When fire burns, the stomach works well and when the stomach works at a high pace, emotionsare digested.
The mind is separated from the emotions allowing you to live separately from them. That is calleddigestion and it's the fire's duty.
Boosts the mind.
Brings determination and dynamism, both necessary to get things done.
Aphrodisiac - among other senses it awakens.
Strengthens the aura (due to the ability of ginger to boost the ego).
