What in the World is Zingiber cassumunar Roxb?
Most of us who aren’t aroma or massage therapists, or from Thailand, have probably never even heard the name Zingiber cassumunar Roxb, or as it’s commonly called, Central Plai. It’s a name that most people in pain should become familiar with. The essential oil derived from the rhizomes of this incredible plant has amazing analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties.
Plant Roots Can Greatly Reduce Pain & Inflammation
A close relative to ginger, the roots of this plant are packed with natural active components which can greatly reduce pain and inflammation. Central Plai grows almost exclusively in Thailand and the essential oil is only produced in a single distillery there. That can make this particular oil very rare but its uses can be wide spread.
There have been numerous studies into its beneficial effects for a wide variety of ailments. More information about its wonderful effects on pain can be found in this article on The Holistic Body Care Blog.
