Ravintsara Oil Uses and Benefits

Product Spotlight

Ravintsara Oil Product Description

Meaning, “tree with good leaves,” in the Malagasy language, Ravintsara is a unique essential oil produced by steam distilling the leaves of the camphor tree. Though sometimes confused with another member of the Lauraceae family, Ravensara, Ravintsara is a bit milder and is similar to Eucalyptus and Camphor. Eucalyptol, the primary chemical constituent of Ravintsara oil, contributes to its distinct, invigorating aroma, ideal for use in a soothing massage. Perfect for personal and home use, this enlivening aroma helps create a relaxing, open environment in your home or office. In addition to aromatic benefits, Ravintsara essential oil also contains surface cleansing properties when applied topically to the skin and general home surfaces.
