Ravintsara (Ho leaf)

Cinnamomum camphora ct 1,8 cineole

Description

Ravintsara is great for reducing pain and headaches. It is an immunostimulant and good for all respiratory concerns. Excellent for colds and flu, Ravintsara is decongesting, anti-inflammatory and helps to clear the sinuses. It is one of the best oils for the long term healing of chronic allergies. It is a soft, camphoraceous oil, and can be used often. Ravintsara is antiviral and is 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. Great to use for children who are sick and to diffuse in the house to prevent the spread of germs and illness.

Safety + Shelf Life

Generally non-toxic and non-irritating, but can be skin irritating if oxidized. Careful with children under 10 years old, as 1,8 cineole can also cause CNS and breathing problems in young children.  (see the reference page on 1,8 cineole rich oils and children)

The suggested shelf life is 3-4 years.

Product Q&A
What is the difference between Ravintsara "ct linalol" (Ho Wood) and Ravintsara "ct 1,8 cineole (Ho Leaf)? What does "ct" stand for and linalol and cineole? Thank you!
CT is chemo type. One would have more linalol and one more of the 1,8 cineole. linalol is a monoterpenol and 1,8 an oxide.
