The common name Ginseng derives from the Mandarin name for the plant, ren shen, which translates roughly as "essence of the earth in the form of a man," a reference to the humanlike shape of some ginseng roots. The genus name Panax derives from the Greek panakes, "panacea," and seng, the term for a fleshy root that is used as a tonic.
The root is edible when soaked or cooked if dried; it is commonly added to soups and grain dishes. The root also makes a delicious and therapeutic candy. It also can be infused in liqueur or wine.
Ginseng is often included in anti-wrinkle facial products as it helps heal and soften the skin.
