- ginger rhizome, dried and finely ground
- ginger rhizome freshly grated
The tropical ginger plant develops a perennial rootstock that thickens into rhizomes. Short slender leaf shoots emerge from them. The flower polarity of this plant does not rise above the level of its leaves, remaining in the lower leaf shoot area near the earth. Ginger thus concentrates its flower polarity in the formation of the rhizome, resulting in the generation of essential oils there.
The external application of ginger stimulates a strong inner generation of warmth in the human organism, which can spread to the periphery. The soul is invited to connect more strongly to the body, which can manifest as deeper breathing. The patient can feel inwardly steadied.
