Organic ginger oil is steam distilled from the dried roots of Zingiber officinale. This warm, dry, and spicy middle note is energizing in blends and lends grounding qualities. The aromas of the dried root distillation and fresh root distillation are quite different. The fresh root oil has a bright note in comparison, where the dried root oil has the traditional grounding rooty notes to the aroma.
Both are very pleasant, and we recommended that you try both to see which you prefer. In general they can be used interchangeably in both perfumery and aromatherapy blends depending on the aroma characteristics you are looking for. Ginger essential oil blends well with many oils like patchouli, mandarin, jasmine, or coriander.
