|Latin Name:||Ravensara aromatica|
Description: Our most potent anti-viral essential oil. There is no oil more useful for combating the flu, or any sort of respiratory virus, preferably in a bowl of warm water with the aromatic steam inhaled. STRONGLY antiviral. Useful for chronic respiratory conditions, and sometimes helpful in cases of asthma. (Try this with care, as ANY essential oil can trigger an attack with some subjects.)
Many authorities recommend a very strong dilution of Ravensara Aromatica blended with Calophyllum as the best treatment for shingles.
Contraindications: Do not use during pregnancy. Avoid use on sensitive skin where possible. Do not use on children (choose Ravintsara instead).
