RAVENSARA Essential Oil | Sustainably Cultivated
One of nature's more therapeutically effective yet gentle oils, Ravensara is perhaps best known for its affinity for clearing and soothing the respiratory channels. This oil has a clean, camphorous and slightly fruity aroma. Keep a bottle of this unique oil around during the challenging winter months. Add a combination of Ravensara and Eucalyptus to your diffuser and run often, providing yourself and others with freshened air. Often used in the same way you would think to use tea tree oil, many people prefer Ravensara for its more gentle approach to healing and comforting.
Ravensara shines in its place next to the massage table: when applied to tired or overworked bodies, it is powerfully relaxing and restorative. When it comes to the mind and emotions, Ravensara acts as a tonic that soothes and grounds feelings of excess movement and energy, while also being uplifting to cast away sadness and inertia. Considered a valuable tool in maintaining the body's natural homeostasis, it is mild enough to be used safely on children and the elderly.

How to Store
Ravensara is used in African ethnobotanical traditions, where it is held in great esteem. Ravensara's widespread popularity and increasing demand has, however, led to deforestation, particularly along the eastern coastal area of Madagascar. This is an oil that should therefore be used judiciously, and purchased from an ethically harvested and sustainable source.
