Hi. I have another clarification question from the course. With regard to healing of an old tendonitis issue – lingering for more than several months. I’m thinking that I’d like to increase blood flow to the area, in addition to using the other strategies of pain relief, decreasing inflammation, improving elimination, etc. It was touched on very briefly that ginger EO could be used topically as a rubifacient. Would I be correct in assuming that I could add several drops of the EO to a cream or salve? Or, say I want to be cautious about adding this and want to try out just the ginger on the area first, would I add several drops to a carrier oil and then apply that? If so, what proportions of EO to carrier oil would be recommended?
