Organic Ravensara Essential Oil (Ravensara aromatica) – Bark
Our Organic Ravensara Essential Oil (Ravensara aromatica) from Madagascar is Organic Therapeutic Quality Essential Oil steam distilled from the bark of the organic Ravensara tree (Ravendsara aromatica).
NOTE: Ravensara and Ravintsara are NOT the same. Ravintsara is a completely different essential oil with completely different botanical name and properties.
Description: Ravensara aromatica (also called Clove Nutmeg) is a member of the Laurel family and originates in Madagascar. Ravensara essential oil is steam distilled from bark and twigs of the tree. Ravensara has a slightly camphorous, yet light sweet scent.
Uses: Organic Ravensara Oil has been used in perfume, and in folk-medicine as an expectorant, antiviral, antibacterial, antiseptic agent. Ravensara was considered helpful in comforting those with winter related illnesses such as respiratory tract infections, bronchitis, influenza, colds, and the aches and pains that come with them.
Organic Essential Oils: Organic Essential Oils are thought to be safer for skin use since the components were not chemically processed nor the plants exposed to pesticides.

We think you’ll really enjoy this ravensara essential oil. To me, it has a wonderfully rich and invigorating aroma that is somewhat different than the wildcrafted ravensara essential oil that we offer – its aroma is a bit more sharp with some underlying earthy notes.
