Some information about Ravintsara
Ravintsara is a tree native to the tropical rainforests of Madagascar. Wild, it can reach 6 to 8 metres in height. It is therefore cultivated by lowering its branches to make it easier to pick its flowers, which gives it its original shape. It has long been confused with Ravensara Aromatica, which has less antiviral and more sedative and calming properties.
The essential oil is colourless and has a characteristic odour due to its milder action than that of the eucalyptus.
1,8-Cineole, a.-terpineol, a.-Pinene
*The chemotype is the identity card of the essential oil, its chemical composition defined by chromatographic analysis. The same plant can have several compositions depending on the place and the variety. A chemotype depends on a property, an odour, a taste.
Tinted bottle of 30 ml or 100 ml. Also available in 10 ml with the AB logo.

100% pure and natural oil
An essential oil is made up of chemically defined molecules (about 10,000 listed) that have been secreted by special plant cells. 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.
Go to the "Properties and characteristics of essential oils" file. Whether pure or mixed, you can use them in our different diffuser models. The information given on each essential oil is for guidance only. Beware of self-diagnosis, do not hesitate to consult an aromatherapist or any other recognised professional and read our special file "properties of essential oils"in our thematic files.
