Plai, Organic

 
Plai is traditionally used in Thai massage for joint and muscle pain. For joint pain and inflammation due to arthritis it can be applied neat in small quantities. For pain and inflammation due to injury the oil can be blended with a base and other essential oils. There are plenty of anecdotal reports of Plai being used post surgery, for menstrual discomfort, for asthma, for irritable bowel syndrome, and on and on. There are also controlled laboratory studies that strongly support the claims of Plai as an anti-inflammatory and analgesic.
Synonymous with Zingiber montanum. Also called cassumunar ginger. This oil doesn't have the heat of other Gingers, it has a slightly peppery smell and is very reminiscent of Tea Tree.
