The ravintsara has the botanical name cinnamomum camphora and in French the camphor. The word ravintsara literally means the good leaf, which has long been used in Madagascar for its medicinal properties. Ravintsara essential oil was first extracted in 1775. This tree with reddish brown bark 20 to 30 m high grows in the Central Highlands of the island.
Ravintsara essential oil is highly concentrated in 1,8 cineole, alpha-terpineol and monoterpene alcohols. These different molecules give it the following main properties:

  • Antiviral ++++ (α-terpineol, 1,8-cineole (eucalyptol)): it is the essential antiviral oil par excellence… the most effective and the safest for all ages! It is both anti-infectious and antibiotic and limits the risk of superinfection.

  • Immunostimulant ++++ (α-terpineol): Ravintsara essential oil stimulates the adrenal glands, responsible for the immune response.

  • Broad Spectrum Antibacterial +++ (α-terpineol, 1,8-cineole (eucalyptol), sabinene): the essential oil of Ravintsara is antibacterial and anti mycobacterial. Its spectrum of action is very broad.

  • Expectorant +++ (1,8-cineole (eucalyptol)): it facilitates coughing, that is to say the expulsion of what obstructs the bronchi.
