"If you are interested in making your own herbal medicines or handmade gifts, infused oils are the perfect way to begin. They are simple to create, absolutely decadent to use and the whole process will make your house smell like heaven. This is fun to do and would be a great experiment to do with your kiddos for a summer project."
Leave skin on the ginger and slice paper-thin with a mandoline slicer if possible.
The only way to end up with the best product possible in my opinion is to remove as much moisture as possible from the root. I have had different herb, root extractions or macerations mold over due to not getting all the moisture out that I should have.
After straining the ginger pieces, you can grind them finely to use in a poultice or paste, or compost them.
