The Ravintsara or Cinnamomum camphora is a large tree of the Lauraceae family. It is an excellent traditional remedy that is used in Madagascar against fatigue and colds, which are quite common, especially in winter. The leaves are also used to produce the essential oil. They are used to prepare an infusion with a delicate and pleasant refreshing taste.

- Comfort of the respiratory tract - Stimulation of natural defences - Relaxing in the evening - General well-being
Advice for use: Boil 1 litre of water. Add 3 or 4 leaves of organic Ravintsara. Cover the container. Leave to infuse for 7-8 minutes. Usually 2 or 3 cups are consumed at desired. We recommend keeping the leaves away from direct light and humidity.
