What is Ginger CO2 and how to use it?

What is the difference between Ginger Essential Oil and Ginger CO2 Essential Oil?

Both are 100% pure essential oils and both have the spicy, warming and invigorating scent of ginger. However, Ginger CO2 is extracted in such a way that it also contains gingerols and shogaol, compounds that contribute to the sharp, pungent smell and taste of fresh ginger. Care must be taken with these compounds as they can cause irritation, and should not be used in a diffuser or added directly to a bath. We love Ginger CO2 so we are putting together a collection of recipes to help you get the most from this wonderfully spicy essential oil…

Abundant Ginger Pulse Point
Combine the following ingredients into a glass roller bottle and transport yourself to a warm tropical beach with this invigorating blend.

💧💧💧💧💧💧 6 drops Cold Pressed Lime
💧💧💧 3 drops Ginger CO2

10mL Jojoba Oil

Autumn Bowls

BY RITA BALSHAW – Hippies in the City

Serves 4

The autumn season is traditionally a period for restoration and replenishment. Be sure to nourish yourself with the following wholefoods meal, that is a delicious and hearty dish, full of colour, flavour and nutritional lavishness.

1 cup buckwheat or quinoa
1/2 a butternut pumpkin
2 baby carrots
2 beetroots
2 parsnips
2 turnips
1 bunch kale
1 bunch parsley
1 tsp fine sea salt
1 tsp cracked pepper
1 tblsp curry powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 cinnamon stick
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp organic honey
2 tsp Fairtrade Organic Nabali Tree Olive Oil
1 cup pecans

Bring the buckwheat groats and one cinnamon stick to boil in salted water, then simmer for about fifteen minutes. Strain the buckwheat, drizzle with a little olive oil and set aside.

Thoroughly wash, chop and slice all the vegetables. Take a large oven tray and grease it with olive oil. Evenly sprinkle the awaiting veggies with heaps of salt, pepper, curry, cumin and cinnamon powder. I always splash my veggies with a tablespoon or two of water and a little honey before baking to ensure a moist, yet crunchy outcome. Cooking time is roughly twenty-five minutes in a fan forced oven at 180°C. Serve your guests a portion of the mixed roasted veggies and a scoop of buckwheat into pretty serving bowls, along with a handful of pecans, dollop of fresh hummus, chopped parsley and a good splash of tamari soy sauce.

*The pumpkin is best cut into boat style slices prior to roasting.
