Plai - Ginger Essential Oil (Oshadhi) 5ml

Plai (Zingiber cassumunar)Plai - Ginger Cassumunar


Cooling, Anti-inflammatory, Supportive

Plai is a member of the ginger family but with an aroma which is much softer, 'greener', and more cooling. It is excellent for muscular aches, sprains and pains, respiratory disorders, skin, digestion, and the cardiovascular and nervous systems. Emotionally it allows us to connect with new viewpoints, and it brings flexibility and perspective.

This is a pure therapeutic-quality aromatherapy essential oil from Thailand and is obtained from the rhizome of the plant.

About Plai Essential Oil


Plai belongs to the same family as Ginger. As with Ginger, Plai Essential Oil is steam distilled from the rhizomes (roots). The distillation of fresh roots produces an essential oil that tends to be more aromatically pleasing than when the dried roots are distilled.

Aromatically, Plai Essential Oil is reminiscent of Ginger Essential Oil. Its aroma is pleasantly spicy with woody and peppery characteristics. It tends to blend well aromatically with the same essential oils that Ginger does, including essential oils in the citrus, floral, mint, wood and spice families.

Popular uses for Plai Essential Oil


  1. Skin - Plai is an excellent ‘health supporting’ oil that is used in many aromatherapy and spa products particularly for massage. It can also be used as an insect repellent and to treat acne.
  2. Mind - Plai can help to soothe the nerves, reduce anxiety and cool anger. It also has an energising effect which can be helpful when feeling lethargic.
  3. Body - Plai is one of the best essential oils for treating, aches, pains and inflammation. Plai Essential Oil is also a powerful antibacterial and antioxidant, making it useful in anti-wrinkle and anti-ageing creams and lotions. Its noticeable analgesic and muscle relaxant properties make it perfect in massage blends to soothe those aching muscles joints after overdoing things in the garden or with sports activities.
  4. Traditional Uses - The healing properties of the plant have been legendary in Thailand and Southeast Asia for centuries, and Plai Essential Oil is still used across these regions in folk medicine for acne, bruises, coughs, colds, digestive disorders, nausea, and respiratory conditions.
  5. Blends well with - Black Pepper, Lavender, Neroli, Orange, Rosemary, Sandalwood essential oils.

Essential OilImportant Information

 

  • * Essential Oils are highly concentrated extracts of medicinal plants, very powerful in their effect and should be used with moderation and great care.

Essential oils used for massage - general instructions for dilution

 

  • If used other than for ambient diffusion, i.e. for massages, essential oils should always be diluted in a good quality vegetable carrier oil before applying to the skin (i.e. sweet almond, sesame, jojoba, olive oil, etc.).
  • The standard dilution for adults is 1–3% essential oil, or about 3–10 drops of essential oil in 15 ml (= 1 tablespoon) of vegetable oil (20 drops = 1ml).
  • For children, sensitive skin and during pregnancy the dilution should be 0,5%-1% (1-2 drops in 10 ml).
  • For a full bath use for adults 5–15 drops and 3–5 drops for a footbath. The essential oils should be diluted with some carrier oil, a little cream or honey to help them disperse in the water.

Specific oils requiring higher dilution

 

  • Essential oils of Clove bud, Cinnamon (leaf or bark), Oregano, Savory, Thyme (thymol and borneol) can irritate the skin, use only highly diluted (0.5%—1% dilution).
  • For sensitive skin care should also be taken with Aniseed, Fennel, Lemongrass, Melissa (Balm), Peppermint, Sage, Wintergreen, and sometimes also Basil, Ginger, Lemon and Bitter Orange (1 - 3 % dilution).

Some precautions

 

  • These oils (except the citrus oils) should also not be used for children under 2 years and during pregnancy.
  • If pregnant avoid in addition: Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Juniper, Sweet Marjoram, and Myrrh.
  • If applying photo-sensitizing essentials oils like Bergamot, Orange, Mandarin or Lemon to your skin (even in dilution) do not expose your skin to direct sun for several hours afterwards (to avoid pigment spots). The furocoumarin free Bergamot is ok.
  • In case of high blood pressure Hyssop, Rosemary, Sage and Thyme (thyme) are contra-indicated; a gentle massage with relaxing essential oils, however, is very beneficial.
  • In case of Epilepsy do not use the essential oils of sweet Fennel, Hyssop, Rosemary and Sage.
  • If you have a medical condition we recommend that you seek the advice of a Maharishi Ayurveda practitioner or aromatherapist.
