Description: The Ravensara tree is 20 meters high with several buttress roots at the base. It has a reddish bark that is very aromatic, and small green elliptical leaves.

Common Uses: Ravensara Essential Oil provides assistance with respiratory problems, canker sores, cold sores, cuts, wounds, burns, anti-biotic, liver, lung infections, flu, sinusitis, viral hepatitis, cholera, infectious mononucleosis, insomnia, and muscle fatigue. It is also viewed as an excellent treatment for athlete's foot. Additionally, there is no oil more useful for combating the flu, or any sort of respiratory virus, preferably in a bowl of warm water with the aromatic steam inhaled. STRONGLY antiviral. Useful for chronic respiratory conditions, and sometimes helpful in cases of asthma. (try this with care and under a licensed practitioners' direction, as ANY essential oil can trigger an attack with some subjects.) Many authorities recommend Ravensara aromatica blended with Calophyllum (Tamanu / Foraha oil) as the best treatment for shingles. We have had terrific feedback from clients using this combination.
