Words by Anny Schneider

The distilled leaves of this semi-tropical shrub have antalgic, anti-inflammatory and decongestant effects.

Can be used in inhalation to clear the sinuses for a few drops in hot water.

Otherwise, diluted in 90% calendula vegetable oil, hemp or St. John's wort, it is used in the massage of painful muscles and joints and against viral dermatological infections: herpes, shingles ...

⇒ Not to be confused with Ravintsare's essential oil (Cinnamomum camphora)!

The aromatic Ravensare essential oil contains less than 4% of 1.8-cineol while the essential oil of Ravintsare (or camphror laurel) contains more than 50%!

For a long time confused, these two essential oils contain very different active substances and therefore separate properties.
