  Ravintsara (no ratings yet)
Cinnamomum camphora, organically produced, steam-distilled leaves, Madagascar.
- Gentler than Ravensara aromatica
- Useful for respiratory viruses
- Use instead of Ravensara for helping children, pregnant or nursing moms


This gently anti-viral essential oil is new to us.

This may well be the oil that many authorities recommended, in the 90's and the early years of this decade, when they wrote of “Ravensara aromatica.”

Gentler than our classic Ravensara Aromatica Essential Oil, this gently anti-viral Madagascar oil is the choice for respiratory viruses. Its high content of cineole will help ease breathing and congestion. I would reach for it, rather than true Ravensara, when helping children or pregnant or nursing moms. It is gentler for topical use, however high 1.8 Cineole oils should not be used around children under 2.

For more information about the confusion, differences, and similarities between the species, please read our page about Ravensara/Ravintsara Confusion here.

SHELF LIFE: Approximately 2 to 3 years after you open the bottle.  Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.
