Ravintsara is an Asian camphor tree found in Madagascar and therefore produces a specific essential oil with a different chemotype to that of China. It is a tree that seeks light and is rich in essence in all its parts, but only its leaves are harvested and distilled twice a year. Always use it organically, and from crops that respect the earth and people.

Ravintsara essential oil has a green, warm, penetrating aroma. The 1.8 cineole, well present, does not manage to relegate to the background the characteristic nuance of a Lauraceae. It is therefore an essential oil of will: it stimulates those who are macerating in lethargic states. It shows the way out and helps those who doubt to become aware of their own resources to bounce back.
