Ravensara essential oil helps to kill bacteria, so this would make a great addition to an acne face wash, serum, or cream, along with a powerful booster for laundry detergent or a body wash. Ravensara would blend well with ginger root and vanilla to boost circulation and help fight skin bacteria. Ravensara has been used topically to help reduce spasms and cramps. Try incorporating ravensara in organic jojoba oil and Oregon hazelnut oil to make a muscle rub, or try mixing in a little ravensara in your bath soak blend of pure magnesium flakes, epsom salt, sodium bicarbonate, and Dead Sea salts. I can picture a great night cream made with organic shea butter, organic cocoa butter, our organic shea butter cream base and an essential oil blend of black pepper, ravensara, cacao absolute, rose absolute and ginger! Ravensara essential oil works as a potent expectorant, helping to break up phlegm and clear sinuses. The sweet and spicy smell of ravensara blends beautifully with spearmint, cajeput and eucalyptus. Use this blend in your diffuser or bath water. A soap bar made with this blend would make your bathroom smell like a spa!

Essential oils are sold in 0.5 ounce, 1 ounce, 4 ounce, 8 ounce, 16 ounce, 5 pound and 10 pound sizes. Do not apply directly to skin. Most essential oils are not designed to be applied directly, rather they are designed to be mixed with a carrier oil such as our organic sunflower or organic jojoba oils.
