Ginger oil is extracted from the ginger rhizome after a distillation process. Like other essential oils, it's very concentrated. Ginger Oil (Zingiber officinale) is a pure, natural essential oil and is used as a flavoring as well as in aromatherapy for its spicy, warming scent and flavor. 

With a peppery scent and an underlying sweetness, ginger oil stimulates the senses and puts us in the mood for a sweet treat. Applied to the skin or infused in a warm bath, it is astringent, warming and relaxing.

Ginger root is the edible part of the ginger plant, which thrives in India, Africa and Indonesia. Like turmeric, cardamom and galanga, it belongs to the Zingiberaceae family and is a distant relative of the banana. Although the ginger plant grows up to a metre tall, it’s the root that is used in food, medicine and cosmetics.

The ginger root is a rhizome, which means that it grows horizontally under. These are harvested and used fresh to obtain their essential oil or an absolute, or dried and ground into a powder, which has a stronger flavour than the fresh root.

Ginger contains the substance zingiberene, which is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. For this reason, it has been used for centuries to treat all sorts of aches. It stimulates the circulation, relaxes tense muscles and alleviates the symptoms of colds, coughs and flu.

Steam distillation is the process of separating organic compounds or volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from water or water-based process fluids. It is a continuous distillation process particularly useful for removing temperature-sensitive solutes such as natural aromatic compounds.

Steam distillation is a separation technique that harnesses the low boiling point property of immiscible mixtures. It is predominately used to separate temperature-sensitive organic molecules from a non-volatile contaminant. The organic molecule must be immiscible in water.

Steam Distillation is used for distilling volatile components from various raw materials, like spices, seeds, leaves, roots etc. These oils are generally recovered by directly applying steam to raw materials followed by condensation of the distillate. The temperature of the steam needs to be carefully controlled – just enough to force the plant material to let go of the essential oil, yet not too hot as to burn the plant material or the essential oil. Different components of these essential oils contribute to the characteristic fragrance and aroma. These oils can be customised to meet the exact requirement of the user.

After several years' research and development, we choose steam distillation extraction method to produce ginger oil as it is safer because there is no solvent used but pure water as the main component. The dried ginger is grinded into powder in advance. Then, the steam produced in the boiler will be supplied into the vessel, which contains water and ginger powder. The steam will contact to the ginger powder and force ginger oil out. After a while, water vapor and the distilled ginger oil are recovered in a different water cooler and condenser. These two separated mixture occurs because of difference in density. The distilled water leaves from downside, while the ginger essential oil is collected at the top of the condenser. Then this ginger essential oil is sent back to the vessel by means of second distillation to recover the soluble components of the ginger oil.
