14 Ways to Use Ground Ginger

14 Ways to Use Ground Ginger

When I was first learning about herbs, I would excitedly read a new recipe or tutorial only to find out it needed some exotic-sounding special ingredient that required an internet order to obtain.

Remembering that frustration, I thought I’d share with you fourteen ways to use ground ginger, which is easily obtained from the baking or spice section of your local supermarket.

Optimally, you’d want an organic brand, but these recipes will work with whatever type is available to you.

For this post, I went to my local grocery store and spent just a few dollars on a bottle of Frontier brand organic ground ginger. (You can also find it HERE on Amazon.)

14 Uses for Dried Ginger Powder

Before we get started, a quick rundown on some of the potential benefits of ginger:

  • anti-inflammatory, useful for rheumatic & arthritic conditions that feel better when heat is applied
  • helps warm & energize the body when you are chilled and/or sluggish feeling
  • helps with colds & flu when chills & congestion are among the symptoms
  • and it really stars in alleviating upset stomach, nausea & vomiting

Here are just a few of the interesting scientific studies about dried ginger on PubMed:

If you have blood pressure problems, bleeding disorders, or are on blood thinners or other such medications, consult your health care professional before using a lot of ginger in therapeutic doses. Nothing in this article or on this site is to be construed as medical advice. Please consult a qualified health care provider if you have questions or concerns about your health.

Okay, now that you’ve got the basic info and disclaimers, let’s get started!

a cup of ginger tea with bowl of powdered ginger

1. Ginger Tea

Ginger tea is easy to make. Measure 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger into a heat proof mug or glass and pour 1 cup of boiling water over it. Cover with a saucer and let sit until cool enough to drink before straining. (I line a fine mesh strainer with a coffee filter to do so.) Sweeten with honey or sugar as desired. The dose for children: 1/4 cup every two to three hours and aim for no more than 1 to 2 cups total per day.

2.  Ginger Compress

A compress, or fomentation, is helpful for painful joints, muscle sprains or stomach aches. Make a tea (see #1 for directions), soak a piece of flannel or washcloth in it until saturated, wring out, then immediately place on the painful area. Cover with a towel, then a heating pad or hot water bottle, then another towel. Leave on for 20 minutes. Repeat if needed.

A bowl of orange jello

3. Ginger Herbal Jello

I recently covered this in the posts Herbal Jello and Healthier Herbal Jello. If you use regular jello, lemon or orange are fabulous flavors to blend with ginger!

pouring hot candy into powdered sugar molds

4. Ginger Candy

Ginger candy is a yummy way to help alleviate the queasiness that sometimes accompanies pregnancy, stomach bugs, or traveling. To make herbal candy you will need: 1 cup of prepared ginger tea (you may want to increase the amount of ginger if a stronger flavor is desired) and 1 1/2 cups of sugar. Stir together well in a deep, heavy saucepan. Boil over medium to medium-high heat, without further stirring, until mixture reaches 300 degrees F.

I like to use homemade corn-free powdered sugar as molds. You can see more details about that method and this recipe at my Rose-Petal Peppermint Drops post. It is essentially the same recipe, only the “rose petal tea” is changed to ginger tea. You can use this method with virtually any herb or edible flower you’d like! (Elderberry is another favorite!)

5. Ginger Fizz

This is a fun drink, especially for kids. The recipe comes from A Kid’s Herb Book by Lesley Tierra, which is a wonderful book that both my daughter and I have poured over many times. It’s a highly recommended resource for your home library!

Make a tea, as directed in #1, only use twice as much ginger. So the ratio will be 1/2 teaspoon ginger to 1 cup boiling water. Simmer the mixture for 5 minutes to reduce it a bit, then let sit for ten minutes before straining. Stir in 2 teaspoons of sugar/honey (adjust to taste) then gently add up to 1/2 cup carbonated water. Drink right away to preserve the fizz factor. You can also omit the sugar/honey and replace the carbonated water with 1/2 cup ginger ale or other light tasting natural soda. (This is a useful alternative for those accustomed to a “soft drink” type taste, but still gets the helpful herb in them.)

three bowls of ginger, sea salt, and pink salt

6. Ginger Foot Bath

A ginger foot bath is invigorating! It helps warm up and stimulate the entire body by increasing circulation to the feet and legs. Persons with diabetic neuropathy may find this helpful, however, it would be wise to double check with your health care provider first.

Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil then add up to 2 tablespoons of powdered ginger and a pinch or two of sea salt (optional.) Let this cool quite a bit before pouring into a basin or tub that will fit your feet comfortably. For your first ginger footbath, start with a smaller amount of ginger then work your way up. Soak feet for ten to twenty minutes at a time.

(For more natural bath soak ideas, check out my Natural Bath Care package!)

a jar of ginger infused oil

7. Ginger Oil

Ginger root oil can be rubbed onto achy joints to help relieve some of the pains associated with arthritic conditions. Another use is placing 2 to 3 drops on a piece of cotton or cotton ball and placing in an aching ear for several hours. I like to use it in salves and balms that I make intended for sore muscles. See my Aches & Pains Balm recipe for an example of this.

To make the oil, place several pinches or spoonfuls (you don’t really have to be exacting on this) of ground ginger in a small jar. Pour olive oil or sweet almond oil over the spice. Shake well and allow to infuse for several weeks in a cool, dark place. Shake daily so that the powder doesn’t settle in one big clump in the bottom of the jar. After about four to six weeks, strain out the oil and store in a clean dry jar with a tight cap. This will keep about a year if stored properly.

a tin of ginger salve

 8. Ginger Salve

While you can use the ginger root oil directly as is, sometimes it’s more convenient and less messy to apply in salve form. To make a salve from the oil you made in #7 above: Weigh out 3.5 ounces of ginger oil and 0.5 ounces of beeswax (or 7 times as much oil as beeswax). Combine together in a heat proof small jar such as a jelly jar. Set this into a pan with a few inches of water. Slowly heat the water over medium heat until the beeswax melts. Pour into small tins or glass jars. Allow to set up then cap and store in a cool, dark cabinet. Apply as needed. Shelf life of homemade salves are usually around one year. They won’t spoil or mold, but the oil will eventually go rancid.

empty capsules and powdered ginger

9. Ginger Capsules

Capsules of ginger are great to take right before a trip if you’re prone to motion sickness. They’re also helpful for when you’re feeling a bit icky, run down, or your stomach feels yucky. I make my own capsules two ways. The first is by using encapsulation tools I bought from Mountain Rose Herbs.

My other, really cheap way that I often employ is to reuse tiny supplement capsules that we only take a sprinkle of at a time. For instance, germanium is excellent to take when you’re sick. But, I don’t like to take large amounts of any one vitamin or mineral because that’s a good way to upset the balance of its cofactors; I’m a micro-doser. So, if someone is under the weather, I might mix a spoonful of honey with a tincture or a bit of herb like olive leaf and I will also add a sprinkle of germanium. I save all of the capsules once they’re empty and toss them back in the bottle. I repry them open and refill with powdered ginger. Then, I have an easy-to-swallow sized pill perfect for kids and those with a sensitive gag reflex.

a bowl of powder ginger and bottle of vodka

10. Ginger Tincture

I can’t make this list without mentioning tinctures! To make one, put a generous pinch or two of ground ginger in a small jar then cover with 80 proof or higher vodka or brandy. (Chopped fresh ginger will work even better, but use what you have.) Cap and shake well then store in a cool, dark place like a cupboard. After six weeks or so, strain out the herbs and rebottle the tincture in a sterilized jar. Label clearly with the date and ingredients. These will keep for at least a year, but likely much longer.

A general dosage for adults is 3 dropperfuls, three times a day, half as much or less for a child. I usually dispense tinctures to my children about 3 or 4 drops at a time. I like to dose ginger tincture in a glass of ginger ale. But, you can also mix some with a spoonful of honey. Brave souls can even take a dropperful directly in the mouth, followed by a swig of water.

11. Ginger Medicinal Vinegar &/or Oxymel

I covered how to make these in the post How to Make Medicinal Vinegars & Oxymels.

Ginger Oxymel is helpful for chest congestion and queasy tummies.

raw honey and ginger

12. Ginger Syrup

Before I found out my issues with gluten, I almost constantly felt sick. It was reminiscent of the morning-and-all-day queasiness I felt when pregnant. For a few years, Maalox was my lifesaver and I went through bottle after bottle of it. (Eek! I know!) Then, I became more health-conscious and switched to some tiny, expensive bottles of ginger syrup from the health food store. Eventually, I figured out that food can be the root of many illnesses, dropped the gluten and queasiness became a thing of the past! I now also know that I could have saved a ton of money by making my own ginger syrup.

While there are several methods of making ginger syrup, I’ll share an easy honey-based one with you now.

First, make a very strong tea (see directions on #1 of this list.) Use twice as much ginger or half as much water when making your tea – you may want to experiment to find what strength works best for you, but that’s a good starting point.

Next, measure out two to three times as much honey, as tea. Local raw honey is recommended, but use what you can get. While the tea is still warm, gently stir the honey into it.

Once the ingredients are fully incorporated, pour into a sterilized jar. Store for around a month in the refrigerator. (Add several tablespoons of vodka or brandy to extend shelf life by several more months.) Dosing: 1 to 2 teaspoons for children over a year old, 1 tablespoon for adults up to five times per day, as needed.

a bottle of rubbing alcohol and ginger powder

13. Ginger Liniment

When I was a kid, my parents had this bright green, minty smelling alcohol I would rub on my legs when I had growing pains. Now I know that this is called a liniment and is easily duplicated at home. Depending on which herb you choose, your liniment will be warming or cooling. A ginger liniment is warming and can increase blood circulation and help when you’re feeling stiff and achy – especially if the discomfort is a result of cold weather.

To make a liniment: place several pinches of ground ginger in a jar. Cover completely with rubbing alcohol (or you can also use witch hazel or vinegar) then place the cap or lid on the jar. Let this sit in a cupboard for around two weeks, shaking every day, or whenever you remember to. After this amount of time, strain out and discard the ginger. Rebottle the liniment in a (preferably dark) bottle. Make sure to clearly label that this is for external use only and keep out of reach of children. If you have any concern at all about children getting into this, then use vinegar instead of rubbing alcohol. Rub this on strained muscles and areas of arthritic pain.

(I also have another liniment recipe HERE that includes ginger and other herbs for varicose veins & muscle pains.)

a container of ground ginger and jar of honey

14. Ginger & Honey Mixture

Finally, the last way you can use ground ginger is the quickest, easiest, and my absolute favorite way.

Just put a spoonful of honey into a small cup or bowl, put in a tiny pinch of ginger, stir together, then eat! Can’t beat the simplicity of that! (Remember, children shouldn’t ingest honey until they are over a year old.)

This mixture is perfect for when you’re feeling a little queasy, have overeaten at a meal, or feel like you may be coming down with a cold or flu.

I hope these fourteen ways to use a bottle of ground ginger from the grocery store helps you realize that you don’t have to wait until you can buy expensive, exotic sounding ingredients to start experimenting with herbs.

Use what you have handy, right now!

  1. Such a timely post, will have to make the Ginger candy for my parents who are embarking on their first cruise next month. Also to put some of the other recipes together for my own aching muscles. Thank you

  2. As always, wonderful post! I learn so much from your blog! I really like the idea of making candy and ginger ale fizz. I use a lot of fresh ginger root, and sometimes I take the outer layer that gets peeled off and steep it in water to make tea.

  3. I have a serious love affair with ginger. One of my favorites is ginger lemon-aid.
    I’m using ginger because I love the taste, so that fact that it’s so beneficial is a win/win for me.
    Thanks for giving me even more ways to enjoy the taste of ginger & the health benefits

  4. Love this! I remember as a child I would get car sick, a lot. We started keeping cans of ginger ail in the car and if I felt funny I would start drinking it and would feel fine after that.
    Those candies are a great idea, and I never though of making a mold that way.

      1. Wish I knew about ginger as a kid. I was famous for being car sick and motion sickness! I love all these ideas. I found ginger through juicing. I like it in small doses, I find the taste overwhelming at times. But in small doses or mixed with the right ingredients its lovely.

  5. Jan, this is amazing! From the first sentence about the frustration of the exotic-sounding ingredients (totally me!), to the super simple honey mixture – such a great list! THanks for linking up at Tiny Tip Tuesday. I’m sharing on FB and pinning! :)

  6. I LOVE this post. Ginger is so versatile and you really captured the amazingness of the wonderful plant here and made it easy to use!
    Thanks for sharing on Natural Living Monday.

  7. Hi, i especially like the last recipe…so quick and easy but what are the health benefits of it or is it just a sweetener for tea, etc. ?

    1. Hi Chris! Using the last method, you’re basically making an electuary, or herbal paste. So, pretty much, it’s another way to dose ginger just as effectively as you would via a tea or capsule or tincture. Cinnamon is another herb commonly used in an electuary. It’s effect is similar to ginger – warming and helpful for coughs with clearish mucus. Using it as a sweetener is a great idea too! :)

  8. Great post, Jan. I too love ginger and first became enamoured with it from eating a particular chocolate bar that now seems to have disappeared from the marketplace. It was called “Ginger Delight” and I believe it was made by the same company that sells “Big Turk” (“Turkish Delight”). The wrapper had green lettering and I have looked for it high and low for several years, both in Canada and the U.S. I wonder if you or any of your readers remember it and have seen it for sale anywhere? As always, keep up your excellent work. To be honest, your website and blog are by far the most professional and informative I have found. Best regards, Farmer Doug @ Ladybug’s Mew in Yellow Point, B.C. :)

    1. Hi Farmer Doug! I’m not familiar with that type of candy bar – but it sounds yummy; I’ll have to keep an eye out for it!
      Thank you so much for your kind words – I appreciate them! :)

  9. So how do we find fresh Ginger root? Where is it normally found? I mean, so it can be found on the root of a tree or plant but which one? I would love to be able to go out and find fresh Ginger that way! I do love the smell of Ginger and other spices when they are cooking!

    1. Hi Norma, all of these ideas work with powdered ginger that you find in the spice section. You should be able to find fresh ginger root in the produce section of many grocery stores though. That’s great stuff too! I’ve seen where people try to cut off pieces and grow indoors (since it’s a tropical plant) but haven’t experimented with that to know if it works or not. It would be really cool to be able to harvest fresh ginger like that!! :)

  10. Pingback: 14 Great Ways To Use Ground Ginger
    1. Whole fresh ginger is great! Drying ginger increases the concentration of some of the compounds which makes it more potent, so you’ll need about 5 or 6 times as much fresh as dried. You can use whatever you have on hand – it’s all good stuff. :)

  11. It is 2.12am in the morning on the 5th of Feb 2013, I have been suffering from Nausea for a few weeks – no not pregnant.
    I have MS.
    May be starting menopause – aged 47.
    MS injection can cause nausea but not this bad.

    What a great site – this weekend, I am going to make some of these things.
    Sitting here sipping ginger tea with honey.
    I need to sleep, I have work soon.

    Thanks – will see how this goes.



    1. Hi Deborah,
      I hope you feel better soon and can get the nausea under control! Another highly effective thing that we use when queasy is spilanthes tincture. I grow my own now, but you can buy it online too.
      It’s very settling to the stomach whether you feel bad from a bug or just from overeating. It’s also a rather powerful antibacterial/viral/fungal so you might want to balance it out by eating yogurt or taking a probiotic supplement – if you try it.
      One more idea is putting a few drops of lavender (at night – since it’s relaxing) or peppermint (during day – since it’s invigorating) essential oil on a small piece of cloth and deeply inhaling the aroma whenever a wave of nausea occurs.
      I really hope you feel better soon!

  12. I love this information concerning ginger. I use ginger to get relief from an advanced case of acid reflux GERD. The medication I’ve been taking for 17 yrs. stopped working for the GERD. Nothing else has worked. I was told by my doctor that I’d have to live with it. So, I did my own research. Someone told me to chew raw ginger. It worked but was VERY hot, so I got crystalized ginger and take it with me everywhere. I also make lemon ginger tea with honey and two teaspoons of raw apple cider vinegar. I I use

    1. I’m glad to hear how much ginger is helping you! My husband recently had some issues with reflux as well and I successfully used ginger (along with food enzymes, heavy duty probiotics and two great supplements called Gastro Health and Stomach Comfort by Nature’s Sunshine) to eradicate it. I love how nature supplies remedies for our health needs! I hope you keep feeling better!! :)

      1. I have learned about the ginger with having knee pain and leg problems. So I use a 1\8 TSP full to put in my coffee and in my hot chocolate and it has helped enough thus far I can put down my walking cane and get about. Thank you on the other tips mentioned in this article.

        1. Hi Mack, Thanks for sharing those tips – that’s such a great idea to add ginger to your coffee and hot chocolate!
          That’s wonderful to hear how much it’s helping you!

  13. I was wondering could I ground up or blend the ginger root? Or do I need the ginger in the bottle. Very very new at using fresh herbs. I get frustrated at times with all the info but no info at the same time anything would help at this time :)

    1. Hi Kristyn! :)

      You can definitely use fresh ginger in almost all of these recipes. 1/8 teaspoon of dried ginger equals about 1 tablespoon of freshly grated, peeled ginger root.

      So, for the tea, put a couple of tablespoons of fresh, grated ginger in the cup instead of the 1/4 teaspoon dried ginger powder. Use it in the recipes as called for.

      The only two recipes where I think dried works better than fresh root would be: (9.) capsules (definitely want the dried there) and (7.) infusing the oil. Even then, you can use fresh root to infuse the oil, but I’m always cautious about using fresh plant matter in oils because of the water content. They tend to spoil faster, so be aware of that.

      I know what you mean about all of the conflicting information out there! If in doubt about something, I always consult one of my trusted books over anything I find on the internet. I have some good books listed in the resources section:

      My favorite one of those, the one that helped me most starting out, was Richo Cech’s – Making Plant Medicine. He covers a lot of common herbs plus ways to make tinctures, poultices, teas, and so forth.

      Have fun exploring herbs! :)

  14. Enjoyed your information on Ginger. I am an older person and tried of taking pills for everything, like something organic and easy. Please send me the information on your website.

  15. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS! For awhile I felt like I never knew what to do with ground ginger, but I had no idea there were so many easy and cheap options. I have a terrible stomach that gives me chronic nausea and vomiting, but it’s nice to have a natural method that relieves a significant amount of discomfort. It’s pretty close to a miracle!

    1. Hi Kailee! I’m so sorry to hear about your chronic stomach troubles – that sounds quite miserable! I’m glad that you’ve found some relief with ginger. It’s a wonderful spice and I like that it’s so inexpensive and easy to buy too! I hope you find out what’s triggering the nausea and vomiting so you can find permanent relief!

  16. Thanks for this great site. Juicing ginger root with fresh apples is also a great combo. I too, love the combination of ginger with dark chocolate. You can order dark chocolate covered candied ginger at nuts.com. And another favorite is and Indonesian ginger chew candy called Ting Ting Jahe, available at most Asian store if you don’t have any homemade and need a ginger fix.

  17. Thanks for info on the powdered form of ginger, which I have. So much more convenient. I was not sure if there are parts of the fresh ginger that is not supposed to be edible, so never purchased it that way. Love these blogs, am sharing.

    1. Thanks for sharing Bonny! I’m glad to hear that the information was helpful to you. You can eat all parts of the ginger root, but I like to peel mine first. We also live in an area where it’s hard to get good fresh ginger root, so I use the powdered most often myself! :)

  18. As someone who has made tinctures for years,I would suggest using the chopped root instead of powder,this would extract the properties better and make it more potent,same for the oil. Just my thoughts..Thank you for your informative posts.

    1. Thanks for the great advice Holly R! Chopped dried root is indeed excellent to use & can be purchased online from various places. Sometimes though, the funds just aren’t available for special orders, so inexpensive powdered ginger is still a great starting point for beginners. :)

  19. Pls if I want infuse ginger,what is d quantity of oil to use to a tea spoon of ginger powder? Thks

    1. Hi Laide, It doesn’t have to be exact amounts; I usually don’t measure. You could perhaps try a teaspoon or two of ginger powder in about 1/4 cup of oil.

  20. Love Love your site! I have been reading and studying up a lot on the powers of Ginger. This looks like it would be great for circulation and inflammation in the legs as well! A while back (I think it was you?) did you post a recipe for a salve that was great for inflammation and pain? Could you tell me where to look for that? Thanks so much! Your a wealth of information!! xxoo

    1. Hi Melissa!

      I sure do have a recipe for a salve for inflammation and pain:

      It works wonderfully, but it can be a little complex and expensive to make. A more affordable salve that I just love (and I’ve had so many people send in great feedback too!) is dandelion salve:

      Another option: You could use some ginger oil as a base and tinker around and add essential oils and perhaps a highly effective additive like tamanu oil and make up your own perfect salve! I have about a zillion salve combo ideas floating around in my brain, just not enough time or ingredients to make them all. The options for customization are almost limitless! :)

  21. What a Doll!! ~ such a quick response…Thank you so much ~ I will definitely try some of these. :)

    1. Hi Rita, It depends on the cause of your lightheadedness & how long it’s been going, but ginger isn’t really the best treatment for that. If you’re feeling that way a lot, then it might be a good idea to have a checkup to rule out blood pressure or other problems. I sure hope you feel better soon!

  22. Wow. I just aboslutly love your site! This all sounds so wonderfull. I have a new go to next time i have questions on herbs. I was wonderingwhen you say ground ginger do you mean dried ground ginger? Because that i have a ton of.

    1. Hi Anglea! Yes, I mean dried ground ginger – like the kitchen spice you would use in baking gingerbread cookies or other such gingery things. :)

  23. how come ya have to strain the Tincture before taking the drops, I take capsules right now for a very bad stomache, I cant take cinnamon because I am highly allergic to it.

    1. Hi Fenton! Straining the herbs just makes it easier & neater to take. But, I often let the herbs stay in and just pour off of the top. I’m sorry about your stomachaches and I sure hope that you find something that helps you feel better!

  24. I’m so thankful that I came across your blog on Facebook! I was recently diagnosed with a liver disease and am constantly nauseous! I’m trying to find all that I can do for myself naturally o try and heal some of the damage. I keep running across ginger, however I had no clue what to dobwith it other then baking, which is difficult at times because I also had to go Gluten free and am still learning to cook this way! I look forward to reading more I your posts! Thank you so very much for the information! Xoxo

    1. Hi Christina! I’m so sorry to hear about your health issues. I’m glad that you’re finding ways to help yourself heal and I hope you start feeling better soon!!

  25. Omg help! O.O I loved the idea for the ginger candies! So I JUST tried to make them. So I’ve done everything and I’m spooning the candy into little circles of powder sugar (which I also loved the idea of doing) and suddenly my candy that’s still in my pan starts doing something REALLY weird. Everything started getting kind of grainy and before I know it what is left of my batch start bubbling (it wasn’t on a heating element!) like the experiement you do in elementary school with baking soda and lemon juice. I look at my candies and two of them are doing the same thing though not to the extent of what’s still in my pan. I turned back on my stove thinking that applying a little heat would help. It didn’t! When it finally stopped bubbling everything in the pan had turned into what looked like just straight up sugar. I now some how have half a pan of ginger infused sugar :( I have no idea what happened. I used organic sugar, organic ground ginger, my water is filtered, and I cooked it to 300 degrees. Has this ever happened to you?? I was really looking forward to using these for nausea when I get pregnant again.

    1. Hi Jessica, I’m so sorry this happened to you! It sounds like your candy crystallized. There’s a great explanation of it at this site http://www.joyofbaking.com/candy/Toffee.html and information on preventing it from happening:
      “Sugar crystallization is the biggest problem in candy making as it will turn a smooth sugar syrup into a grainy mess. This is caused by the formation of sugar crystals which can start a chain reaction of crystallization (the process of sugar particles clinging together) that makes the mixture grainy…..”

    1. Hi Angela, As a long time migraine sufferer, I’ve tried so many things over the years! The most helpful has proven to be consistently taking magnesium supplements. I buy magnesium taurate from my local health store and you might be able to find some locally as well. I also cut out chocolate (which was terribly hard to do!), but that’s just my personal trigger – I was allergic (hives) to it when I was a kid, so I guess as an adult that how it manifested itself. One other thing is that I learned that migraines are also tied to your liver not being in tip top shape. Herbs like milk thistle and dandelion can help strengthen it over time. It was a slow process to rebuild my magnesium levels and strengthen my liver, but I very rarely get a migraine now and then only because of a stressful situation, like a loved one being critically ill or something.

  26. Hi I have mixed equal amount of Fenugreek seed powdered with Turmeric Powder and dried ginger root powder, i mixed 100 grams of each to make the mix then put them in capsules and take 2 capsules daily one before breakfast and one before dinner, is this ok. it has been helpful with joint pains i need to know if i continue this is it ok.

    1. Hi Farid! I’m afraid I just don’t know the answer to that. It sounds like a really nice combination. If you are feeling good and it seems to be helping, then it’s a good chance you could keep taking it, but I would definitely double check with your health care provider if you have any questions or concerns. I hope your joint pains keep feeling better!

  27. Hi. I am curious how many of the candies is good to eat at a time or is a one a few hours kinda dosing better. I have chronic inflammation in my lower back and neck. Today for the first time I put a couple dashes of ginger into my pineapple juice it’s good. Then I found your website and would love to make the candies.

    1. Hi Jessica! I think you could eat two at a time, but spacing them out might be helpful by keeping a low dose in your system. That’s just what I usually do, but it’s all an instinct thing. I don’t have any scientific reasoning, so I would just go with what makes you feel better. :)

  28. Great article for using ground ginger. I suffer from chronic neck and back pain and neuropathy from scar tissue from a bi-lat mastectomy 3 years ago. I will be trying the ginger tea and even the simple ginger-honey treatment. Thanks again.

  29. Okay, that is it, my ginger bread house is comming down. I need my ginger. It was made of Four slices of bread making a square and my bottle of ground ginger sitting inside. My bottle of ginger is a larger one so I am making coppies of all of this and going to see how many I can make to fit the need of all my family. Have one daughter and her little girl that gets car sick if in a car over 15 minutes. They take pills for this.
    One other thing when my blood pressure was always very low I would get light headed bad, my doctor said to eat a spoonful of sugar, since I didn’t drink soda water, sweeten tea or put sugar in my coffee. It helped.

    1. Hi Sherry, Thanks for the tip on the low pressure! I hope that you have lots of fun making many gingery things for your family! I especially hope it helps with the car sickness. I have a kid who gets queasy traveling and ginger has been a sanity saver for us!

  30. Hi guys a late comer here. I think Trader Joe’s and Sprouts, marker may have all the things you are looking for. Re: fresh ginger roots and so on. Happy findings.
