Ravensara Essential Oil

General Description: Ravensara is a tropical, aromatic tree with fragrant leaves, bark & nuts that is native to Madagascar and the Indian ocean islands. Historically, the bark of the tree has been used locally to make rum. The oil has a medium strength initial aroma but is a potent oil that should be diluted well. The oil can also be extracted from the bark, however the methyl chavicol content that results makes it unsuitable for use in aromatherapy and skincare. Ravensara is often confused with Ravintsara. Although they sound very similar, the two oils are very different. The lack of documentation on ravensara contributes to this confusion as often the information for ravintsara is re-reported attached to ravensara.

Commonly associated with: Ravensara is a strong antiseptic and good alternative to Tea Tree as some find the scent more appealing. As a steam inhalant it enhances feelings of clear breathing, while in massage it feels pleasant for tired and aching muscles. It is antimicrobial as a room spray, added to cleaning solutions or on the skin, and one of our customers uses it to prevent foot rot in his flock of sheep. Its gentle, spicy notes makes this a useful oil in make fragrance where it is gently uplifting and eases lethargy.

• We recommend that you read our Basic Guide to Using Essential Oils which you can find in our Information Hub

Responsible Marketing

The Medicines act requires that, as vendors of essential oils, we do not say anything that could be interpreted as a medical claim. This means we cannot suggest that essential oils help, alleviate or cure any disease, disorder or medical condition, even very minor conditions like headaches, colds or congestion. Nor can we inform you of any traditional remedial uses of essential oils.
Scientific research is being carried out into the properties of essential oils but as, like wine, the oils vary from batch to batch, the findings can only be applied to the specific batch tested. This means that in the EU, essential oils cannot be licensed to make remedial claims in relation to a specific disease or adverse condition of the body of mind.

We do want you to be as informed as possible when using our essential oils and therefore would suggest that you do your own research either through an accredited aromatherapy course or using reliable books by industry recognised experts Robert Tisserand, Len Price or Shirley Price. The Aromatherapy Trade Council operate a voluntary code of conduct which we abide by and they are a good source of information. Aromatherapists registered with the IFPA may also be able to offer you advice. Please be wary of information you find on the internet as it is mostly unregulated and often promotes unsafe practices and makes unsubstantiated claims.
