Plai Essential Oil
Plai Essential Oil, closely related to Ginger, is a favorite for easing discomfort and supporting clean airways. The scent is refreshingly herbaceous, with slightly peppery middle notes that will add spark to any combination. It may also serve as a digestive tonic, easing nausea and soothing irritated bowels in addition to reducing pain and inflammation. Plai can also be exciting and exhilarating, as well as helping to bring emotional equilibrium.
After showering: Apply 1-3 drops of essential oil in the palm of one of your hands and rub your hands together while your skin is still moist. Apply the essential oil to your legs, arms, and torso quickly and evenly. Avoid places with sensitive skin. Apply cream, lotion, or body oil directly on damp skin for optimum hydration and moisture seal.
Bath, Foot: Mix 1-3 drops of essential oil in 1/2 teaspoon of carrier oil, such as fractionated coconut oil, for a bath or foot soak. Remove from the equation. Fill a tub with warm water (deep enough to cover your feet and ankles). Immerse your feet for 10-15 minutes after adding the essential oil mixture and stirring carefully. Inhale the scent and massage your feet.
Spot application: Combine 1-4 drops of essential oil with 1 teaspoon carrier oil or aloe vera, then apply to the affected region.
Chest Rub: Rub your upper chest and upper back with a mixture of 5-15 drops of essential oil in 1 tablespoon of carrier oil or fragrance-free, natural lotion.
Bath: Mix 4-8 drops essential oil in 1 teaspoon carrier oil, such as fractionated coconut oil, for a bath. Add 1-2 cups Epsom or Dead sea salts to your bath if you have muscle aches. Fill the tub halfway with warm water and relax. Massage your skin and inhale the scent. Stay in the tub for at least 10-15 minutes.
Diffusion: To fill the air with a therapeutic aroma, follow the diffuser manufacturer’s recommendations.
If you don’t have a diffuser, here are some simple alternatives:
Place 2-4 drops of essential oil on multiple cotton balls or tissues and place nearby or in an air vent in your home or automobile.
Massage: Mix 6-30 drops of essential oil in 1 ounce of carrier oil or fragrance-free, natural lotion before massaging.
Room Mist: In a mister bottle, combine 30-60 drops of essential oil with 4 ounces of water. Before each usage, give it a good shake to avoid getting the mist in your eyes.

Kambio Nature was created by a French family who fell in love with Cambodia and its nature in 2013. In recent years, the increasing use of chemical ingredients in skin care products and its impact on the environment caught their attention. In 2014, they produced the first distillations of essential oils in Siem Reap and in 2015, Kambio Nature was launched. The name is derived from Kampuchea (the ancient country name for Cambodia) and Bio for natural. All products are organic and made responsibly with the European ECOCERT standard.
