Ravensara Essential Oil
Ravensara Essential Oil is also known as Ravintsara Camphora Essential Oil or Ravintsara Camphora Essential Oil, but this is due to an histocial misaprehension…
Ravensara Essential Oil Origins
Ravensara Essential Oil shares the same origins as Ravintsara Camphora Essential Oil. Both are distilled using the young leafy twigs of the Cinnamomum camphora tree.
Although some still refer to this profoundly healing essential as Ravensara Essential Oil, this name is dying out in favour of Ravintsara Essential Oil and / or Ravintsara Camphora Essential Oil.
Ravintsara Essential Oil Country Of Origin :: Madagascar
Ravintsara Camphora Essential Oil INCI :: Cinnamomum camphora
Wild As The Wind Ravensara Essential Oil
Wild As The Wind carry two varieties of Ravintsara Essential Oil from two different suppliers, but both are sourced from the same variety of tree. We refer to the other oil as Ravintsara Essential Oil to differentiate them, and to keep things simple.
We know people are still going to be searching for Ravensara Essential Oil, so this is the best way of leading everyone to the right essential oils, and giving everyone a chance to learn the backstory of this important healer.
The truth of the matter is, however, that the term Ravensara Essential Oil is a misnomer. The name Ravensara Essential Oil should not have been used within the realms of aromatherapy.
Ravensara Essential Oil is actually a perfumery ingredient and was never intended to be used as a healing oil at all. This is because the original Ravensara Essential Oil is from a different tree entirely, the Agatophyllum aromaticum.
Nevertheless, the name Ravensara Essential Oil was used by some to mean Ravintsara Essential Oil and it stuck, even though it is waning in popularity the more people catch on to the fact it’s actually not the correct name for the essential oil they wish to buy.
Ravensara Essential Oil Aroma
Ravensara Essential Oil has a rich, warm, spicy aroma which is said to be a little reminiscent of Eucalyptus Globulus Essential Oil, but is softer, and, in my opinion, closer aromatically to the milder Eucalyptus Dives Essential Oil.

Ravensara Essential Oil Health Benefits
Ravensara Essential Oil is both stimulating and reviving. It provides both physical and emotional support. It also offers immune support when we are run down and stressed due to over-doing things or being under pressure.
Ravensara Essential Oil is ideal for upper respiratory infections, sore throats, rhinitis, bronchitis, sinusitis, colds and flu.
Vapourising Ravensara Essential Oil in a bowl of steaming hot water with a towel over your head is the way to go if you have any of the above. Do this several times a day to ease symptoms and kill infection. Use up to 5 drops of Ravensara Essential Oil each time. Another great aromatherapy oil to add to your steaming water is Canada Balsam Essential Oil. These two essential oils together are a formidable force and smell fantastic. Also consider adding Copaiba Essential Oil.
Ravensara Essential Oil is enjoying a little bit of a come-back in popularity. It has been eclipsed for some years by the popularity of Tea Tree Essential Oil. But, Ravensara Essential oil can do everything that Tea Tree Aromatherapy Oil can, and then some… However, it may be because Tea Tree Essential Oil is marginally less expensive that this oil remains the favourite of the two.
