Ravintsara essential oil is used in aromatherapy to temporarily relieve cough associated with colds and the flu.
Native to Asia, and also known as Madagascar Camphor, the Ravintsara tree produces an essential oil that is obtained from distilling its leaves, which smell a lot like camphor. Not to be confused with Ravensare (Ravensara aromatica), a tree sadly on the road to extinction that produces 2 essential oils (depending on whether the leaves or the bark is used), whose properties differ from those of the Ravintsara tree. The essential oil currently sought is that of the Ravintsara tree for its antiviral and immune-boosting properties.
Organic and Chemotyped essential oil, 100% pure, natural and authentic.
