Feel the need for some healing? Well, look no further. Did you know that Ravensara Essential Oil is considered by the people of Madagascar as “the oil that heals?” Don’t worry, I didn’t either!
Ravensara Essential Oil comes from the Madagascan C. Camphora, which originated from (surprise, surprise) Madagascar in the middle of the nineteenth century. Ravensara Essential Oil is extracted from the leaves of the plant through steam distillation.
It has a fresh and clean scent and has a low camphor content. Ravensara blends well with Chamomile, Citronella, Cypress, Eucalyptus, Fir Needle, Ginger, Juniper Berry, Lavender, Rosemary, Tea Tree, Wintergreen.
Ravensara Essential Oil is helpful during times of seasonal illness as it works great as an analgesic, anti-allergenic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiseptic, antispasmodic, antiviral, disinfectant, expectorant, relaxant, and tonic substance. To get the most out of these properties, use this recipe for steam inhalation!
