Ginger

This amazing root  is native to India, where  the ancient  Ayurveda’s  used it to preserve  food,  as  a  digestive  aid, and as a spiritual and physical cleanser, it would be consumed in order to be sweet-smelling and purified for the gods. The Greeks  wrapped the root in a piece  of bread  and  ate it after a heavy metal to prevent indigestion, that is the origin of gingerbread.
