Now of course you know I cannot have a herb in my kitchen and not know what it's good for. Well I can but what good would that do. I need to know the power of the natural things that God has placed on the earth for man to thrive.  So I've done the research and now I'm sharing with you. See how much I love you? I'm saving you the time and hassle of searching for the information yourself.  LOL. So, without any further ado, here are the health benefits of ginger:

  1. My partner loves to add ginger to his juicer. I love how it smells, but that's about it. :)

  2. I love the smell of ginger too and I love the ways it stings just a bit when I drink the tea.
