Ravensara: a great essential oil for all age's, from infants to adults

Ravensara in Indian means the good leaf. The essential oil is believed to have a balancing quality on energetic boarders.
Ravensara is a great substitute for eucalyptus oil when treating respiratory problems.
When small babies have a cough or chest congestion eucalyptus oil is not recommended because it is to strong. In stead you can use Ravensara oil by either defusing it in a oil burner or applying it topically with a almond base oil (ten drops of essential oil to one teaspoon of base oil) to the chest and upper back. For a more intense treatment you can put your head over a bowl o steaming water, put three or four drops of Ravensara oil into the bowl and but a towel over your head and the water.
