Ginger is having a moment, and that is good from my point of view because I love the fresh scent of fresh ginger. Whenever I have a sniffle, I grate raw ginger to make ginger tea. (And everyone is on it: Have you seen the ad for Canada Dry gingerale, where the pop is in the fresh produce department?). LUSH beauty has added this natural healer to its new Hottie Massage Bar. The bath and beauty company says aromatherapists use ginger oil to relax tense muscles and soothe aching joints, as its warming action helps to encourage circulation. To up its cred, LUSH, in its press release, references an article in the New York Times, reporting on a study published by the Journal of Pain, where the connection between consuming ginger after sports activity and reducing muscle pain and soreness is established.(However, the study is about consuming two grams of ginger in controlled studies.) Now, how about this bar: Glide it over body after a hot shower and the oils will melt on skin. $8.95
