Shelf Life of Plai Essential Oil: 

Our freshly decanted Plai essential oil will last for 2-3 years minimum from when you open your amber glass bottle if stored correctly:

Primary Storage Considerations:

Keep away from direct light (U.V. radiation)

Keep in the amber glass bottle with lid tightly closed. Only open when you need to and decant into a smaller "working" amber glass bottle if possible (and label so you know what is in it). This is to reduce oxidation.

Secondary Storage Considerations:

Keep in a refrigerator at around 4 degrees celsius.


Commonly used by Thai massage therapists, Plai is used extensively to relax muscles and promote tissue wound healing.

The scent can be described as green, peppery and cooling with a subtle bite.

To compliment the therapeutic benefits of Plai, blend the essential oil with our massage oil base up to 10% or to 5% if adding in our After Sport blend.
