Finger Root Product Sheet

Originating in Thailand, Finger Root is part of the Ginger family. Steam distilled from the roots of the Fingerroot plant, this incredible essential oil is known for its warm, camphorous aroma that is fresh and slightly floral. Finger Root can be used to help support a healthy digestive system and offer relief from occasional digestive upset. The aroma of Finger Root Essential Oil is especially useful when suffering from a queasy stomach. The calming properties can be useful to help promote a positive atmosphere that will help you cool down when feelings of anger are prevalent.

Finger Root Essential Oil is another great choice to clear congestion in the head and chest. Use it in an Aromatherapy inhaler or in your AromaFuse Diffuser to clear up your head and chest, and breathe easier. Finger Root Essential Oil Can be used for hair care to promote a healthy, itch-free scalp caused by dryness and weather change. Add to your favorite shampoo and your scalp will be nourished and itch-free. Finger Root is an incredible oil that is versatile in its therapeutic properties.

For a travel recipe to help quell queasiness, add 5 drops of Finger Root, Mandarin, and Ginger to a Personal Aromatherapy Inhaler. Inhale when needed to help ease the queasiness and make travel less stressful. Add a few drops to your favorite shampoo to help relieve dry, itchy scalps.

5.0 5  Such a versatile oil!

I received this oil when it was released as the Oil of the Month. It was my very first OOTM and it's what hooked me :) I have added it to my shampoo to help my dry, itchy scalp (I live in a very dry place) but mostly, I swear by it for tummy troubles. I've found it to help with a random upset stomach, irregularity and nausea. I apply it to my abdomen diluted in coconut oil. It never takes long for it to work. It's great for car/motion sickness as well. Just a sniff or two of the bottle helps! To me, it smells a lot like ginger but better. I was so happy when PT added it to the regular line up!

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

5.0 5  my bff

Finger root has become my bff when it comes to dealing with my dandruff/dry scalp. I added this smelly little guy to my shampoo and has been awesome help with the itchiness and flakes that this time of year brings me. Wish it smelled better, but it's not the worst either.

5.0 5  Finger licking good oil

I was curious about this oil but pulled the trigger on the rare essence. Gingery, fresh and complex. This is a neat little oil for circulation and pain. If you like ginger, you'd love this. Give it a shot.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

1.0 5  Not a fan

While I will always be a fan of PT , I can't find a place for this oil. I ordered it back in May because I use ginger root and this one is kid safe. Ginger root helps me with nerve pain. Finger root smells horrible! I tried to diffuse it for bronchitis and sinusitis thinking since I couldn't smell, maybe it would help. Nope! It is supposed to help a queasy stomach but I had to turn it off and leave the upstairs so that I didn't vomit!! This one definitely doesn't agree with my body.

recommend  No, I wouldn't recommend this to a friend.

5.0 5  Very earthy Scent

I ordered this oil for respiratory support for chest and sinuses, as well as for digestive issues. I love the smell, which is very earthy and reminds me of vegetables that have just come out of the ground. I am looking forward to diffusing this oil.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
