Cold & Flu Remedy: Blend 3–4 drops ravintsara and 3–4 drops of eucalyptus radiata with 1 oz. of carrier oil into a massage blend and rub into neck and chest area as a preventative when you are starting to feel sick with a cold of flu. Highly effective in cases of bronchitis, rhinitis, and sinusitis.

Shingles & Herpes: Because ravintsara is antiviral, I find it effective for shingles and herpes zoster. For shingles, blend melissa and ravintsara essential oils to St. John’s Wort oil and apply liberally several times daily.
