  • Muscle Relaxation
  • Skin Care

Docta’s Notes

Plai oil possesses analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, making it beneficial for relieving muscle aches, joint pain, and discomfort associated with strains and sprains. Plai is often used topically for its pain-relieving effects, and it’s cooler than more heating roots such as Turmeric & Ginger.  Plai’s warming and soothing properties can help relax muscles, making it valuable in massages and after physical activities, while not increasing body core-temperature.

Plai oil is a great ingredient for therapeutic lotions or salves – Plai may also be used for its potential benefits in skincare, particularly for reducing inflammation, soothing skin irritations, and promoting overall skin health.  While not as strong or pungent as some other essential oils, its aroma and therapeutic potential, contributes to be a valuable ingredient in massage practice and aromatherapy.


  • Dilute in a carrier oil (ie. 2.5% infused in coconut or jojoba oil) and apply it directly to the affected sore region.
  • Passively support immunity and aid with calming the nervous system using a few drops in your diffuser.


As with any essential oil, perform a patch test before using Plai oil topically, especially if you have sensitive skin. Pregnant women, individuals with specific health conditions, or those on medications should consult a healthcare professional before using Plai essential oil.
