The Cannellaceae family of plants, including Cinnamosma fragrans, grow only in Madagascar. Mandravasarotra, which is the local name for this medium sized evergreen shrub translates as “keeps bad things away.” The people of Madagascar use the aromatic leaves in decoctions and teas as restorative and purifying tonics, poultices, and balms for all accounts of exposures and discomforts.
Saro Essential Oil’s broad botanicalbiotic largesse is a wintertime necessity for lung-love and air purification. Add to a drop to a carrier oil for a warming chest balm for better breathing or to a massage oil to blanket tight muscles with tenderness. Enjoy in a diffuser or salt pipe. The freshening floral aroma is pleasantly energizing in aromatherapy. The camphor-like aroma arises from cineole, a plant compound that is non-toxic, non-irritating, and non-sensitizing.
