An all natural, intoxicating perfume oil, body oil, hair oil, bath oil. An ultra-restorative, skin-conditioning and nourishing base. The pure essential oils in Thai-Ginger are uplifting, comforting and have a spicy, heady scent. And don't forget, it is intensely scented!
Apply 1-3 drops to give your hair shine.
*** Add 1-3 drops in your palm, rub your hands briskly together, and run your hands from the scalp to the ends of the hair. This provides light shine and wafting aroma to the hair, wet or dry.***
Dab on 5-30 drops as a perfume oil.
*** Liberally apply to pulsepoints and especially try the nape of the neck!***
Use 1-2 teaspoons in your bath.
*** These floating oils soothe and moisturize the skin and balance harried emotions. ***
A scalp massaging oil.
***Apply 1-5 drops in your palm, rub your hands briskly together and massage in the scalp. Good for both oily and dry scalps! Jojoba and other viscous oils dissolve oily build-up from over-productive hair glands and also lubricate underproductive hair follicles to keep your scalp skin supple and healthy. ***
Apply directly to dry patches of skin or abraded skin areas for healing.
***Remember, these all natural ingredients are also very healing. ***
Cuticle oil. Apply a couple of drops to your cuticles and rub in well.
***Keep cuticles soft, promote healing, and besides, your hands will smell awesome. ***
Give your partner a scalp massage. Spread the love, baby!
Note: This product has a slightly higher than normal percentage of essential oils, which suggests its use should be in drops as listed above. This product is not intended to be used over large areas of skin due to its higher essential oil content, unless diluted.

"I love this product and use on clean damp hair after showering. My hair smells great and it helps soften the ends. A little goes a long way so it will last awhile. I wipe the remains on my legs or arms. Really nice!" from C.M.
"I live in North Dakota. In January & February we deal with below zero temps. Chapped lips are a struggle with the cold. I have found just a tiny bit [of Thai-Ginger] on my bottom lip every morning has kept my lips soft. Thank you, Lori!" from Lora R. in Minot, ND

+++++ ALL NATURAL INGREDIENTS AND WHAT WE DON'T USE +++++
At Vital Roots, we believe that "all natural" means that every single, last ingredient is natural. Not that the main ingredient is natural and that's enough. Or even that almost all ingredients are natural, besides the fragrance oil and synthetic preservatives. At Vital Roots we use only natural ingredients and that includes our natural preservatives. We are....
* sulfate/sls-free *phenoxyethanol-free
* caprlyl glycol (Optiphen)-free * synthetic color-free
*corn, cottonseed, canola and soybean oil-free * Alert: while we purposely choose to never use a carrier of soybean oil, we do use a soy-derived Vit E. This type of Vit E has the highest antioxidant power and is most commonly used in bodycare products. While most people with a soy sensitivity will not react to this minute amount and preparation of soy, we want to make it clear for those who have a much more serious reaction to any soy * petroleum-free
*Never any mineral oil, no solvent-extracted carrier oils, no Tetra-sodium EDTA, no polysorbate 20 or 80.
* And no fragrance oils. The term "fragrance" can have up to 4,000 separate chemicals, which the FDA does not require the manufacturer to list. Many of these chemicals are carcinogenic, toxic, or hormone disruptors.
~~~ What's left, you ask?~~~
Natural ingredients as close to what the earth gave us as we could get.
~~~ Try us, your skin will agree.~~~
