There is much confusion over this oil and usually Ravintsara is sold as Ravensara. We have carried out extensive research employing the expertise of Dr.Nesbitt from Kew Botanical Gardens in London. It is very clear that they are both very different chemically and are from different species of tree.

The production of this oil is of great concern to the environment as it is usual practice to cut down the whole tree to harvest the leaves/twigs etc. Our oil is produced using only the leaves, which are harvested without destroying the trees. Sustainable Wild Organically grown: no pesticides or herbicides used.

A member of the Lauraceae family Cinnamomum camphora (NEES) is not an endemic species of Madagascar, it is also found in China, as it originated from Borneo and has been widely used as an ornamental tree. This tree is called Ravintsara in Malagasy. The essential oil of the Cinnamomum camphora from Madagascar is definitely different from the one that originates from China and I recommend that the essential oil should be called Ravintsara (Cinnamomum camphora) essential oil. Interesting note: Cinnamomum camphora (Ravintsara) from Madagascar is High in cineole; around 60%. Cinnamomum camphora (Ho leaf) from China is high in Linalool around 80 to 95% depending on how it is distilled.
