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…

Hippies in the Kitchen: Autumn Plum Cake

Autumn Plum Cake… With Citrus Cream

By Rita Balshaw – Hippies in the City

Autumn is just so beautiful, it is a time of nature-giving goods where many fruits are ripe and ready to be lovingly enjoyed. This Autumn season is mystical and inspiring, blooming with fiery leaves and crisp sunny afternoons that are spent in the garden appreciating the gentle transition towards winter.

We picked a lot of plums this season, so I used a few to create a delicious and wholesome upside-down cake. Scented with juicy plums, nutmeg and ginger, it is a perfect companion to a cup of steamy Perfect Potion herbal tea.

2 sliced organic plums
1 cup buckwheat flour
1 cup hazelnut meal
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1 tbs coconut oil
2 organic eggs
3 tbs hazelnuts
1/2 cup almond milk
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 drop ginger essential oil 

Lightly grease a medium sized pie dish with coconut oil. Sprinkle the bottom of the dish with a little coconut sugar and a few crushed hazelnuts. Arrange the plums on the bottom of the plate in the design of your choice. In a mixing bowl combine the flour and hazelnut meal, baking soda, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and ginger. In a separate bowl combine the eggs, almond milk and coconut oil and whisk until smooth, then fold the flour mixture into the liquids. Pour the batter over the plums, being sure to spread the mixture evenly. Bake for about 30 minutes at 160*C until the cake is golden, but moist. Remove from the oven and use a knife to loosen the cake from the sides of the pan. Place the dish over a plate and invert so that the cake falls upside-down onto the plate. This special plum cake is best enjoyed when it is cooled, but perfect fresh out of the oven for frostydays. I like to add a dollop of the following citrus cream and a little drizzle of honey. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

Citrus Cream

1/2 cup thick coconut cream or organic yoghurt
1 drop of either mandarin, lime or lemon essential oil

In small bowl mix together until all is well combined and serve with a slice of plum cake.
