The Story :
Ravensare is a tree native to the tropical and humid forests of east-central Madagascar. It has a red-brown bark, dark green oblong leaves on top, light underneath, green flowers and fruits divided into six septums that also contain essential oil.
It is the “medicine tree”, called Havozo by the Malagasy, and used for both body and mind ailments. It has long been confused with Ravintsara, a kind of camphor from Madagascar that contains only a small amount of camphor and is closer to Eucalyptus.
Ravensara aromatica grows at an altitude of 700 to 1000 meters, it is abundant in the eastern primary forest as well as occasionally in the forests of the eastern coast.
The Plant :
The Ravensare is an endemic tree, about 20 to 30 meters high. We have selected extracts of Ravensare carefully harvested in Madagascar, the cradle of the latter, in order to offer a superior quality oil. Ravensare Essential Oil has a floral and woody scent.
- Helps to strengthen the natural defences
- Promotes relaxation and purifies the air
- Ideal for a relaxing massage
In infusion: To stimulate the natural defences, fight against infections and stimulate the nervous system.
To do this, mix 3 to 4 drops in a litre of warm, non-boiling water. Indeed, water that is too hot tends to evaporate the essential oil too quickly and could also degrade the essential oil and its components, making it less effective. It is important to dilute the essential oil in honey or on a sugar cube which you will then add in warm water, in order to unify the mixture. Once your preparation is done, you can enjoy your infusion for a moment of relaxation, at any time of the day
Atmospheric diffusion: To clean and purify the atmosphere of your interior, but also to create a fresh atmosphere and thus perfume a room.
Depending on the diffusers and the size of the room, pour between 5 and 30 drops, and allow 30 minutes for a large room and about 15 minutes for a bedroom. In all cases, comply with the instructions for the device used.
In cosmetics: in particular, it helps to treat skin infections, reduce perspiration, moisturize and heal wounds.
Ravensare essential oil is used very diluted in a rich vegetable oil to solve skin problems, but also to perform an invigorating massage for tired muscles. Pour 4 drops of essential oil for 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil of your choice and massage gently into the area concerned.
In case of herpes (fever blister), make an equal mixture of Ravensara, Niaouli and Thyme thujanol essential oil or Tea tree and Calophyllum vegetable oil. Apply as soon as it appears every 2 hours, the first two days, then three times a day. It’s very effective.
