Ravintsara is high in 1,8 cineole and also contains around 10% a-terpineol. Unlike some other oils with a high 1,8 cineole content it is extremely mild and can be used liberally on the skin, even in larger quantities (i.e . 10 - 20 drops distributed over the whole body). It's added quality is that it is a nerve tonic and as such always provides an upward shift in mood and emotion.
It is non-toxic, nonirritant, effective antiviral agent, and safe nerve tonic. It is effectively used to ease Shingles outbreaks, best applied topically within a 50:50 blend with Calophyllum inophyllum. It can also be used safely for children, as it is one of the most non-irritant oils.
Botanical: Cinnamomum camphora type cineol
