Refreshing Ravensara Essential Oil is steam distilled from the leaves of Ravensara aromatica, a member of the Laurel family. Organically harvested in Madagascar, this oil is known to be gentle yet quite clarifying and effective. It is rare to find an oil that is so powerful yet so easily tolerated by sensitive skin. Aromatic applications are endless and we like to refer to this essence as the Echinacea of aromatherapy.

Our Ravensara Essential Oil revitalizes body and mind. Hailing from the nourishing rain forests of Madagascar, this oil is non-irritating and may be used neat like you would tea tree essential oil. It is an uplifting essence that offers crystalline clarity for skin, cerebral spheres, and soul.
"Ravensara is of particular value because it is extremely well tolerated, whether inhaled or applied topically. Its mellowness is on par with true lavender."
