Ravensara aromatica (Lauracee)

Origin: Madagascar

Not to be confused with ravintsara, which is an entirely different species and a variety of Camphor (and yields an essential oil which is totally unrelated to the oil obtained from ravensara).
A large evergreen tree that's found only in the tropical forest of Madagascar and the Comoro Islands, ravensara has shiny, leathery, oval leaves, yellow-green flowers and thick, reddish bark. The tree grows to a height of thirty metres and its trunk can grow as wide as one metre.
It takes its name from Malagasy "Ravina", which means "leaf" and "tsara", which means "beneficial".


The essential oil is extracted by steam distillation of the leaves and twigs. It's a clear, nearly colourless (or very light yellow) liquid which gives off a fresh and spicy, vaguely anise, fragrance.
It combines well with most essential oils but especially those of Black pepper, Cinnamon, Copaiba, Eucalyptus, Juniper, Laurel, Lavender, Oregano, Peppermint, Red thyme Tea tree, and Vetiver.

(according to
popular herbalist tradition)

Essential oil of ravensara is non-toxic and non-irritating, and has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, tonic and expectorant properties. A traditional herbal remedy for the common cold, it's also an effective treatment for herpes of all kinds. It's traditionally considered a natural stimulant too, as it's believed to combat physical and nervous fatigue. Thus its reputation as a "cure-all" essence or also "panacea essence".
When used with a diffuser, this essential oil also acts as a powerful natural anti-septic agent.

Traditionally, the most frequent use of essential oil of ravensara is as an ingredient in the pharmaceuticals industry.
