The Taste and Aroma of Pandan Leaf there are many uses for this leaf have any of you guys tried it?

It’s true that pandan has been used in Thai cooking since the Ayutthaya era. But pandan can be used as fragrant scents. While still on the plant, the leaves have little fragrance. But when you crush and extract the plant, the soothing scents will be released. In fact, if you take a cab in Thailand, you’ll see a bunch of fresh pandan leaves in the passenger seat. The idea is to have its natural fragrance released, as it will serve as your cab’s air freshener.

It's cheap enough to buy we bought some the other day from mackro 

Finally, there’s more to pandan than meets the eye. If there’s one thing, pandan leaves have various health benefits. They contain natural healing properties which most Thais have used for ages. They are boiled, along with pandan roots, to make tea. They work best for chest pains, cramps, spasms, headaches, and to lower blood pressure. They are also made into medicines sold in traditional Thai pharmacies, where they are used as treatments for skin fungus, arthritis, and other ailments.

An Australian I knew when diagnosed with cancer was given this in his meals by his Thai girlfriend whilst he was living here and he claimed that it did relieve some of the stomach cramps/aches/pains he suffered from.
