A customer called a few weeks ago asking me about the Ravintsara essential oil that we carry. She hadn’t been able to find it anywhere, and when she talked to other stores about it they told her that Ravensara and Ravintsara are the same thing. Not so. Here is what our website teaches about these wonderful oils.
Ravintsara reduces pain and headaches, is antiviral, and effectively used for shingles and herpes zoster. For shingles, add Melissa and Ravintsara to St. John’s Wort oil and apply liberally several times daily. Is decongesting, anti-inflammatory, helps clear sinuses, chronic allergies. It is an immunostimulant and good for all respiratory concerns. Excellent for colds and flu.
Ravensara helps the respiratory and cardiovascular systems to harmonize. Lymph drainage is facilitated and is also a beneficial oil for joint pain, digestion and water retention.
There are some similarities in these oils, but as you can see, Ravintsara is very effective for shingles and herpes zoster. I talked to my mother-in-law a few weeks ago and she mentioned that she thought she might have shingles. Shingles is caused by the herpes zoster virus and appears as a painful rash as well as headaches and other symptoms. The rash can occur anywhere on the body and most often appears as a stripe of blisters that wraps around the persons torso. The pain and itching can be quite distracting.
I recalled the conversation with my customer and bought a bottle of the Ravintsara. I filled a roller bottle with fractionated coconut oil and put in 10 drops of the Ravintsara and gave it to my mother-in-law. Several days later she remarked that it worked really well for the pain and itching. After rereading the instructions next time I would add the Melissa to it as well. I’m not sure where the St. John’s Wort oil can be found. I’m happy my mother-in-law was helped by this little oil and will look forward to using it for sinus issues.
We hope you will enjoy using our essential oils. We carry both Raventsara and Ravensara as well as many other single essential oils as well as oil blends. Garden Essence Essential oils are affordably priced, which make it easier for you to take care of yourself and your family.
