Ravintsara

Ravintsara - The Scarlet Sage Herb Co.

Ravintsara is a large evergreen tree which resembles linden and has a reddish bark which is highly aromatic. It has a minty, fresh, grounding and herbaceous scent which opens the lungs and deepens our breath. This is the best essential oil for shingles, is a powerful antiviral and nerve tonic. Its beautiful scent and powerful healing properties have been recognized for the last 500 years as an immune enhancing oil and respiratory aid.

Applying ravintsara essential oil to swollen lymph nodes in the neck and under arms is an excellent way to reduce the recovery time from colds and flu. It’s refreshing scent also aid the respiratory system by breaking up and expelling excess mucus and congestion. It is commonly used alone or in blends for sinus infections, allergies and bronchitis. It’s mild in odor compared to eucalyptus and peppermints but has its own unique way of boosting the quality of breath. This essential oil is also good for reducing stress and calming the nerves and is helpful for restlessness, anxiety and nervous fatigue or exhaustion.

There is much confusion between Ravensara (Ravensara aromatica) and Ravintsara (Cinnamomum camphora). These two plants are different trees all together and produce essential oils with different chemistry. Ravintsara (Cinnamomum camphora) which is available from Veriditas Botanicals contains more of a compound called 1,8 cineol, sabinene and a-terineol. You may recall that 1,8 cineol is a primary component of rosemary and has excellent properties for aiding respiratory health and the skin.
