Nettle and Ginger Oil   8 comments

Well we finally got there Thanks to Brid and Airmid. I picked enough leaves to 1/2 fill a 400ml jar and then added a 4″ piece of ginger, which I cut into small pieces, and filled with Groundnut oil. Put it into the cupboard under the sink and I will shake it once every day for 28 days. Then it will be ready to use, and I will find out if nettles and ginger work as anti-inflammatory.

  1. Ginger I can absolutely vouch for; that’s one of the uses I grow piles of it for. It also increases circulation where it’s applied topically, so don’t be surprised at some reddening.

  2. Thank you so much GG That is so helpful and I will be sure to watch out for the reddening. But on the otherside, if it does help with circulation, then I can make some up for the wife to use on her hands, which go numb due to poor circulation. Top Cool and thank you again GG, you are a star.

  3. It should help her, but you might need to be careful of an oddity of ginger. It can bring on a period early within a few days of it starting, or make a current one a lot heavier. That’s more common internally than externally, but I’ve seen it happen then, too.

  4. Thanks again for that, and I will advise her accordingly. Also what is the best way to prepare the ginger, grate or cut or whole.

    • Mixed with nettle, I’d probably go for cut unless I needed the oil in a hurry. Grating will mean having to strain bark-bits out, but the oil will be ready much faster. Cut will be a bit slower, but easier to filter. Whole, I’d save for something you plan to store long-term; ginger bark is fairly sturdy stuff, and infusing would take some time, but the ginger would hold up for a lot longer.

  5. Thank you once again, I will add your notes to my herb page. I am allowing 28 days has a standard per mixture, and I am only making small amounts at this time, personal use only. But to filter I have found that bog standard new cheap tights work wonders. cut off the legs and use that to filter. It does work well.
