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.
The camphor tree, from which Ravintsara essential oil is extracted, can be easily identified by crushing its leaf, which releases oil and with the unmistakable aroma of camphor.
Native to tropical parts of Eastern Asia, Cinnamomum camphora, more commonly known as the camphor tree can grow up to 15-18 meters tall. This unique umbrella-shaped tree produces small, white flowers and black fruit and its glossy, light green, oval-shaped leaves are steam distilled to produce Ravintsara essential oil.
The refreshing, earthy aroma of Ravintsara essential oil pairs well with mint oils like Peppermint oil and Wintergreen oil. Ravintsara oil also blends well with Copaiba oil, Frankincense oil, Lavender oil, Tangerine oil, and Vetiver oil.
