Ravintsara is an essential oil distilled from the leaves of the cinnamomun camphora tree native to Madagascar, and is known to Madagascar’s locals as the “oil that heals”. It has a scent similar to that of eucalyptus, because they both contain a compound called 1, 8 cineole (eucalyptol) which gives their essential oils an expectorant and anti-inflammatory effect helpful for treating bronchial asthma.
Ravintsara is known to stimulate the immune system, and has decongestant and expectorant properties, it can be helpful with any respiratory issue. It can also be a great addition to any blend for respiratory infections. Add a few drops in any carrier and rub onto the chest and back or use a few drops in a warm bath! Ravintsara can also be used to reduce pain and headaches.

I love all the oils that I purchased with JOYA Essentials. This time I used them to make hand sanitizer!! Love it!! All natural, and the scents are just beautiful
Absolutely love this oil. It's smells very similar to eucalyptus but it's slightly lighter and less overpowering.
I use it for my sinuses and couldn't go a day without it! A must have in my household.
