Ravintsara is a powerhouse essential oil steam distilled from the leaves of the Cinnamomum camphora tree, commonly known as the camphor tree. Though sometimes confused with another member of the Lauraceae family, Ravensara, Ravintsara is a bit milder and is more similar to Eucalyptus and Camphor. Eucalyptol, the primary chemical constituent of Ravintsara, makes its aroma uniquely invigorating and ideal for use in a soothing massage. Perfect for personal and home use, this enlivening aroma helps create a relaxing, open environment in even the stuffiest rooms. In addition to aromatic benefits, Ravintsara also contains surface cleansing properties when applied topically to the skin and general home surfaces.
