Fragrant and strong

Powerful, but more subtle than tea tree oil which it sometimes replaces. A lovely addition to my collection of essential oils.

A go to oil

My go to during cold season. Just a couple of drops in the palms and inhale. Always a powerful clearer of the upper respiratory system for me. Love this brand, great quality.

Strong and good for sinuses

Not quite as strong as the one I got from a French pharmacy, but the best I’ve found in England!

Disappointed by Neal’s Yard Remedies customer service

I ordered a few items but you subsequently advised me that you were out of stock of Ravintsara. You did not offer to fulfil my order when it came into stock.
I am not impressed by your service.
