There is much confusion between Ravensara (Ravensara aromatica) and Ravintsara (Cinnamomum camphora). These two plants are different trees all together and produce essential oils with different chemistry. Ravintsara (Cinnamomum camphora) which is available from Veriditas Botanicals contains more of a compound called 1,8 cineol, sabinene and a-terineol. You may recall that 1,8 cineol is a primary component of rosemary and has excellent properties for aiding respiratory health and the skin. Despite ravintsaras botanical name it is very low in camphor and thus is non-toxic, non-irritant and does not cause harm to the body. The essential oil of ravintsara can be used internally for short periods of time to enhance flavor of natural herbal cold and flu syrups like elderberry and others and has an immune enhancing effect especially as an anti-viral. Ravensara (Ravensara aromatic) is used exclusively in Veriditas Botanicals wellness formulas specifically the Shingles Treatment and the Cold Sore Treatment.

In Ayurveda ravintsara is considered to be dry and light in nature and is great for reducing kapha type congestion which is especially prevalent in spring. It also enhances the immune system through building ojas which is the fuel which brings inner fire, energy, and healthy immunity.

In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) it is supportive of lung health by balancing wind heat and cold. It helps remove damp heat from the liver and gallbladder channels as well. Is disperses damp heat from the skin and generally is indicated for removal of heat toxins.
