Ginger has been used for centuries as a spice and a medicine. It is the rhizome of the plant and related to cardamom. Above the ground, the plant has reed-like stems that grow to a height of around 3 to 4 feet. It is used in a culinary capacity to make ginger ale and gingerbread. Ginger tea helps reduce nausea and motion sickness, as does smelling the essential oil of ginger.
