Description: Gingergrass is a tall perennial grass reaching up to 1.5 metres high. It is a perennial growing herbaceous plant with long slender stems and terminal flowering tops.
Uses: The aromatherapy uses for gingergrass include the improvement of circulation and blood flow, calming and reduction of stress, as well as the opening of sinus passages.
From a spiritual perspective gingergrass is viewed as a mood uplifting, euphoric, aphrodisiac-inducing oil.
In the perfumery industry, gingergrass oil is added to inject a sharp, green scent - particularly in men's colognes.
Gingergrass blends well with cananga, geranium, rosewood, amyris, sandalwood, guaiacwood, cedarwood and essential oils. It is closely related to lemongrass and palmarosa.
