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.
