Indiginous to Madagascar, the Ravensara tree is a member of the Lauraceae (laurel) family. It is 20 meters tall with several buttress roots at the base, with a reddish bark that is very aromatic, and small green elliptical leaves.
Its name in Malagasy means 'aromatic leaf'. It should be noted that Ravintsera (cinnamonum camphora) is not from the same species as Ravensara, and is not the same Essential Oil. Blends well with: Clove Bud, Eucalyptus, Lavender and Rosemary.
Ravensara is not to be confused with Ravintsara oil which comes from the botanical Cinnamomum camphora as Ravensara is a completely different oil chemically and aromatically. It has a spicy, herbal aroma whereas the Ravintsara smells very reminiscent of Ecalyptus Globulus. Don’t be fooled by other companies who sell the cheaper Ravintsara and try to pass it off as Ravensara. If you get this oil from another vendor and it smells like Eucalyptus then you have been duped.
