Ginger has Arrived!

Ginger Has Arrived!

The Practical Herbalist and Practical Herbalist Press are pleased to announce the publication of the sixth volume of The Practical Herbalist’s Herbal Folio series. Ginger: Warming Spice for Health and Life by Candace Hunter and Sue Sierralupé is now available exclusively on

Today, most of us think of ginger as that spicy root added to curry and cookies, the one that gives foods a little kick without overwhelming the senses. Not so long ago, ginger held an esteemed place in our medicine cabinets and apothecaries with good reason. Modern scientists who’ve delved into ginger’s active properties realize our ancestors were onto something. Ginger’s soul-satisfying fire does more than offer up good flavor. It eases inflammation and helps energies move on so many levels.

Come with us on this look into ginger’s properties in this edition of The Practical Herbalist’s Herbal Folio series. We’ll look deeper into ginger’s medicinal properties, the conditions it best treats, and the cautions you’ll want to heed.

Take a tour through ginger’s history, learning more about its folklore, mythic, and magic properties, then discover a variety of ways you can use ginger to care for hearth, home, and your animal companions. Try your hand at making ginger medicine, or stir up one of the recipes we offer to get you started incorporating ginger into your life.

This volume includes all the information you’ve come to expect from The Practical Herbalist website:

  • Medicinal Properties and Actions
  • Conditions best helped by Ginger
  • Advanced Medicinal Processing and Use
  • Gardening and Growing
  • Animal Husbandry
  • Household uses
  • History, Folklore, Myth, and Magic
  • Cautions
  • Recipes

Plus, The Practical Herbalist’s Herbal Folios contain a Quick Facts sheet you can use on the go, at home, or for teaching others about Practical Herbalism.
