It's easy to confuse Ravintsara with Ravensara, after all, they sound almost the same. However, Ravintsara is obtained from the leaves of Cinnamomum camphora while Ravensara is derived from a tree called Ravensara aromatica. Aromatically, the former is associated with a clean, fresh, eucalyptus-like scent with earthy and subtle peppery notes. On the other hand, the latter has a slightly sweet, spicy, and fruity medicinal aroma.
Therapeutically, Ravintsara is valued as a natural antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal, anti-infectious, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, expectorant, and antiviral. High in 1,8-cineole and monoterpenes, it is an excellent oil to use for respiratory infections and at the first sign of flu.
With a wide array of health benefits, Ravintsara is used for muscular pains and aches, minor wounds, flu, insomnia, respiratory congestion, depression, infections, and more!

Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:
Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.
Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.
Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
