Ginger

Product Overview

Ginger has been used throughout the ages to treat sickness: sailors from the East chewed Ginger to counteract sea-sickness, the ancient Chinese used to serve fish dishes with ginger to reduce the unlucky effects of shellfish poisoning while the ancient Greeks ate ginger sandwiches after large meals to help relieve their indigestion. Over time this practice led to the bread and ginger being made together and eventually being served as ‘gingerbread’. Ginger is still used for nausea and primarily as a herbal treatment of motion sickness.
