Also known as the organic Camphor tree, Ravintsara is native to Madagascar. Derived from the Malagasy ravina, meaning leaf, and tsara, meaning good for you, this camphoraceous oil—which, oddly enough, contains no actual camphor—has long been used to combat respiratory illnesses.
For nearly thirty years, our African supplier has been working with rural communities to produce organic high quality essential oils, like our Ravintsara, which is steam distilled from only the freshest leaves on location in Madagascar.
A strong immune system stimulant, Ravintsara has strong anti-infectious, antiseptic, bactericidal, and expectorant therapeutic properties. Its decongestant and anti-inflammatory properties also make it effective in clearing the sinuses.
