The Ravensara tree is a member of the laurel family and is indiginous to Madagascar. This essential oil is praised in Madagascar as a “Cure All” oil, in much the same way as tea tree oil is heralded in Australia.
It should be noted that Ravintsera (cinnamonum camphora) is not from the same species as Ravensara, and is not the same Essential Oil.

- reduces pain
- reduces alergic reactions
- prevents bacterial infections, acts as a disinfectant
- inhibits fungal infections
- cures spasms
- fights viral infections
- enhances libido
- promotes urination
- acts as an expectorant
- reduces stress and depression
- acts as a tonic
Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.

Simply put - we are not doctors, and are therefore not able to make recommendations for treating specific conditions and this includes route of administration of any oil. Essential oils are concentrated distillates of the essence of the plant - like medicine, some are good in small amounts but can be dangerous in large amounts, particularly for small children, pregnant women or the elderly. It is our position that anyone who intends to take essential oils internally should only do so under supervision of their family doctor.
