Commonly known as the shampoo ginger, the rhizome has been used traditionally as herbal medicine in Asian, Indian, Chinese and Arabic folklores. It was used to treat inflammations, fever, skin diseases, toothache, relieve pains, or as a stimulant. The hawaiians employed it as compress to sore spots, bruises and cuts, and the milky juice obtained from the pine cones is still famously used as a shampoo. Hawaiian ginger has a rich source of compounds of phytomedical interest, like chlorogenic acid, flavonoids and essential oils and has been reported to have antiinflammatory, antioxidant and antimicrobial properties.
