Words by Mikaël

The essential oil of Ravintsara comes from a tree with a thousand virtues, the "Cinnamomum camphora", which can reach about thirty meters, has leaves covered with a film of wax and whose flowers have white petals. 

The aromatic bouquet smells of eucalyptus. 

Its distillate contains half of eucalyptol, the rest is composed among other things of terpene oxide, terpene alcohol, sesquiterpene and ketone.

This essential oil fights pain, destroys pathogenic microbes, relieves muscle contractions and joint pain (for both athletes and elderly people!), clears respiratory voices.

Also, it stimulates energy, vigor and defense mechanisms against infections.

It is used to treat influenza, allergies, dry cough and fatty cough, having an ability to act against respiratory infections, sinusitis and bronchial injuries.

It is generally used in external application, dilute with vegetable oil, for massage.
