Note: Depending on the climate, CO2 essential oils can sometimes not be liquid at room temperature. If this is the case, simply run the closed bottle underneath water from the hot water tap for a couple of minutes in order to liquefy it. Please be careful not to burn yourself with the hot water. Alternatively you can slowly lower the bottle into a saucepan of boiling water for a couple of minutes, but be careful not to burn yourself or to let the bottle touch the bottom of the saucepan.
Ginger is nontoxic and non-irritant, although there is sensitization in some individuals; slightly phototoxic. The CO2 extract is more irritating than the steam-distilled oil. It needs to be strongly diluted for topical application and massage. Try on a small spot of skin first and wait 20 minutes to test for compatibility.
