It's actually a rhizome, but that's a common mistake lol
Anyhow You could use dry ginger "root" for empowerment, strenght, and proetection ( u it's one of the main ingredients in "Fiery wall of protection" formulas ) as well as banishment, and perhaps in some sort of passion potion or oi l.
I'd suggest drying and pulverizing it, for then it can last so very long and You could use it in simple powders even, for example ( off the top of my head ):
Passion Drawing powder :
pinch of coffee ( optional )
That's something akin to "Black Passion formula", bit milder
Use as strong protective agent, sprinke on items or on Your tresholds
Hope it helps, Blessings!
