Many authorities recommend Ravintsara blended with Calophyllum as the best treatment for shingles. We have had terrific feedback from clients using this combination. We have also had many requests over the years to offer a blend. Because of legal difficulties in offering a product “intended to treat, prevent or mitigate disease” we’ve declined until now. We are preblending our organic Madagascar-grown Ravintsara in a 50% dilution in a base of Calophyllum Inophyllum carrier oil (sometimes known as Foraha or Tamanu). We’ve written at greater length in a recent blog article, citing authorities recommending this blend for use against shingles and other herpes infections, as well as quoting delighted clients.
