Ginger is an antibacterial, antiviral, circulatory stimulant, anti-inflammatory, diaphoretic, anti-spasmodic, anti-emetic, antifungal, anticoagulatory, carminative, antiarthritic, analgesic, and antitussive. It is also well known for helping relieve nausea, especially in pregnant women (although it is also indicated in cases of morning sickness, nausea induced by chemotherapy or postoperative nausea). It is also perfect for colds, and I discovered ginger relieves uterine and abdominal cramps, as well as being an emmenagogue, which means it helps to lower back delayed menstruation.
In Witchcraft, Ginger has properties that can attract love, money, and success. It increases and balances Yang energy, providing vitality, power, and energy. It has a light performance of energy cleansing, besides strengthening, regenerating and stimulating the energy of other herbs in joint preparations.
Formerly some witches had a habit of chewing ginger before any ritual for their power to be increased, especially in rituals involving love.
Ginger (Zingiber officinalis) :
Energies: Love, Money, Success.
Lore: Ginger is native to Asia, and seems to introduced to the West by Alexander the Great around 340 B.C.E. Chinese placed ginger in tombs to feed the dead, and hung postions of the root over doorways to protect and guard women and her child in childbirth. It was also used for communication with deities. (Ginger is still an important part of religous offerings throughout China and Hong Kong.)
Pacific Islanders chewed ginger rhizome* during healing rituals and, while at sea, spat the masticated spice at storms to stop and/or slow them.
Magickal uses: When eaten before performing spells and/or rituals, ones spiritual power shall increase. May speed up or increase the power in a concoction or potion.
*Rhizome: an underground stem that looks like a root

Another thing to remember about ginger is that it is easy for our bodies to obtain a tolerance for it if it is ingested too regularly, and a high tolerance to ginger stunts the medicinal properties of it.
