Well, who doesn’t like a bit of ginger in their tea or meal? Not only you will enjoy the taste, but you will also gain some health benefits from it.
You can use ginger to calm nausea, so it can be used for seasickness and pregnancy-related nausea. Besides that, ginger is also great when it comes to fighting inflammations. People who are exercising a lot can use it to reduce muscle soreness and joint pain.
Ginger can also be used to reduce pain, especially during women’s menstrual cycles. Stomach issues can also be a past thing simply by using a bit of ginger.
These are just some of the health benefits of this amazing spice, and you should consume it daily. You can add it to tea or daily meals.
If you don’t want to buy ginger every day, you can simply grow one in your home. You just need to get it from a seed catalog or garden center.
How to Grow Ginger
To grow ginger, you will need draining, very rich potting soil. When it comes to the pot, you can use wide and shallow one. This is very important because ginger actually grows horizontally (at least its root does).
These are 5 steps you need to follow:
- Soak ginger root overnight
- Put the soil in your pot and place the ginger root in it, with eye buds pointing up. Put 1-2 inches of soil over it.
- Water it well.
- Place the pot in a warm area (not hot), a place that is shaded from the sun.
- Keep it moist with a spray bottle. Remember that ginger grows slowly, so it will need a few weeks before it becomes visible.
That is that! You will now have an endless supply of ginger. It doesn’t need too much of maintenance, and when you cut off a bit (to use), the rest of the root will keep growing.
