Thai massage therapists have long been regarding Plai Essential Oil as one of those oils necessary to successfully rejuvenate and restore joint and muscle imbalances. Although Plai is in the same family as Ginger, Plai's properties are more intense, thereby the ease of pain and suffering may be profound. Plai is said to be the only essential oil known to relieve pain in and of itself.
Plai essential oil stands out from other members of the ginger family because it’s cooling, not warming, like other ginger oils.
