You probably already know that the essential oil of Ravintsara is obtained from a distillation, using a still, and especially from our ravintsara leaves. These leaves are used for infusion (herbal tea) of Ravintsara in individual infused sachet certified organic by ecocert.
A Madagascar, Ravintsara signifie “LA BONNE FLEUR OU LA FLEUR BONNE POUR TOUT”.
But did you know that traditionally in Madagascar, for treatment, you chew or chew fresh leaves or make infusions (herbal teas)?
It contains the virtues of Ravintsara in a much softer form than the essential oil (which is the extract of the active molecules of the plant and therefore a very high concentration), which makes it easier for people who are a little more sensitive to oils to access them.
The infusion (herbal tea) of Ravintsara in individual tea bag certified organic by ecocert, can also be for children under 6 years and pregnant women for whom essential oil is not recommended.
The infusion of Ravintsara in sachet Infusette, being lighter it is very well tolerated and can be used throughout the winter in «background treatment», to strengthen its defenses in a softer way and spend the winter quiet.
The infusion (Tisane) of Ravintsara is recommended in early winter or before a cold period but also as a cure throughout the winter in addition to the essential oil.
“But where did you get this idea? ”
It came to us from Madagascar. Traditionally, the Malagasy use the Ravintsara leaf directly. They chew it freshly picked from the tree or brew it in water for drinking but also for showering with. By the way, Tahina, the producer, is always happy to prepare buckets of Ravintsara-infused water for you to shower with when you are ill. I myself (Tristan), having done it several times, was amazed by the effect.
One day you may have the opportunity to come and experience this tradition, but in the meantime you can always try it in your bath! You still need to infuse in very hot water (80°) before putting in the bath.
Today we are delighted to be able to allow you to discover these leaves directly in infusion or as you wish.
