It is our intent to enhance your understanding of the NZROHA and Aromatherapy in New Zealand.
This is the one oil that I always reach for whenever I encounter any kind of “wounding”, whether minor or major. This includes all manner of cuts, scratches, puncture wounds, scrapes, bruises and knocks, tearing type wounds like strains and sprains, burns, and also insect stings and bites.
The plant was traditionally used as a healing plant by the indigenous people in some areas of Thailand, and in more recent times the essential oil has been used by Thai massage therapists.
Plai, Zingiber cassumunar Roxb., (SYN. Zingiber purpureum Roscoe), has long been regarded by Thai massage therapists as one of those oils necessary to have in their kit to combat joint and muscle problems.
