Some information about the Ravintsara

The ravintsara a tree native to the tropical and humid forests of Madagascar. Wild, it can reach 6 to 8 meters high. It is therefore cultivated by lowering its branches to facilitate the picking of its flowers, which gives it its original shape. It has long been confused with Ravensara Aromatica, with less antiviral and more sedative and calming properties.

The essential oil is colorless and gives off a characteristic odor due to its milder action than that of eucalyptus.

Usage tips

Essential oils are powerful natural substances and should therefore be used with care.

It is therefore advisable to refer to it to find out about the traditional modes of use.

It can consist of from one to several hundred molecules, which helps explain why some essential oils have many properties but different therapeutic effectiveness. To guarantee the properties necessary for effective aromatherapy, it is important that an essential oil is 100% pure and natural (not cut, not deterpenated, not mixed with alcohol or vegetable oils) and preferably organic. This is the case for the essential oils we sell. They are sold in tinted bottles with a dropper cap.

The information given on each essential oil is for guidance only.
