Description: Ravensara is not a wildly popular essential oil, but it's one you should know about. It's often confused with Ravintsara (Cinnamomum camphora), but they are two very different botanicals. If you love "medicinal" essential oils, those oils that have a myriad of healthy benefits, this Wild Ravensara may be perfect for your essential oil collection.
Some uses for Ravensara include stress relief, aches and pains, and support for restful sleep. More benefits include headache relief and fatigue. Ravensara covers a very wide range of of ailments, and offers many enhancements for well-being.
Ravensara is a strong antiviral essential. Adding to your diffuser can be a tremendous help during a cold or flu, diffusing an antiviral and expectorant mist into the air. Adding Ravensara to Tamanu oil (Foraha) (Calophyllum inophyllum) has shown to be a very powerful topical aid to those suffering with shingles and other viral skin conditions.
If the host benefits aren't enough to grab your attention, don't forget about Ravensara for your diffusing pleasure. By itself, Ravensara may not be the type of essential oil you'd want your house smelling like. But don't discount the power of blending. Ramp up your favorite invigorating, energizing blend with a little bit of Ravensara, then just enjoy the aroma while reaping the benefits hidden in the power of aromatherapy.
