About us



Lisa McGee Lindsey Owner/Creator of Ginger Yum, 

I was raised by my grandparents (TC and Annie McGee) within a loving and supportive community in Memphis, TN.  I was taught the values of being a responsible citizen and having empathy for others. My life thus far, has been a validation of the “Six Degree of Separation” concept.  I firmly believe that within this circle, are the perfect persons to benefit from mutual support during this journey. I am blessed and honored to have been a leader in a Fortune 100 company for over 28 years. My previous employer also emphasized being a responsible community partner and received national recognition for supporting small businesses as well as businesses owned by women of color. I’ve always had that “entrepreneurial spirit”, but I also desired to make a meaningful contribution that goes beyond money and status. In response to my heart and head, I called upon my upbringing and management repertoire layered on the foundation of integrity, judgement and customer loyalty and started Ginger Yum, LLC.

Ginger Yum was created to re-introduce the ginger root and all its’
healthy properties with an added personal care twist-it has the most
pleasant aroma! Ginger is not only great for internal consumption, but
it also has excellent benefits when used as a topical. The decision to
emphasize nature gift of the “Ginger” root in our products is one
based on our commitment to finding a healthier all-natural personal
care alternative to often odorous, ineffective and preservative laden
body products offered by other companies. The ginger root can be
traced as far back as the fourteenth century where it was grown in
India, Southern Asia and Africa. Ginger Yum will only use products
from the best national and international sources.  The pure
essential oil of ginger has over 20 antioxidants that aid in the
healing of burns, bruises and scars. It is also known to help in skin
toning and achy joints. The ginger root has been proven to reduce
swelling, sore muscles and stimulate poor circulation. When
incorporated with other quality natural products the aroma is indeed
pleasurable.  Many scientific studies have validated that ginger
contains protein, iron, vitamin C, folic acid, and vitamin B3. Ginger
stands on its own merit when using the standards of longevity, quality
and positive results. We are committed to introduce to everyone the
pleasant, sweet and spicy aroma of the ginger root and its
effectiveness when used as an external personal care option. Ginger
Yum’s personal care products has the most pleasant aroma and is the
most effective in the industry.  Full Stop!
