TC Essential Oils
Ginseng is actually a broad term that incorporates nearly a dozen different species of plants belonging to the Panax genus. This highly valued plant, which has large fleshy roots (their main source of nutrients), is typically found in North America and certain cooler areas of Asia. However, due to the global demand for this beneficial plant, it has been exported throughout the world. There are different types of genus, as mentioned, some of which have woody roots, while others are fleshy. The root is the most medicinally valuable element of the plant and can be purchased in dried, whole, or sliced form. The leaves of ginseng are used on a far more limited basis, but they do have some uses.
