Searching for the real Ravensara (Ravensara aromatica Sonn.) essential oil. A case study for NATIORA - the Malagasy natural product label

, : Searching for the real Ravensara (Ravensara aromatica Sonn.) essential oil. A case study for NATIORA - the Malagasy natural product label. Perfumer and Flavorist 30(1): 60-65

The essential oil of ravintsara is obtained from the leaves of Cinnamomum camphora, introduced from Taiwan to Madagascar as an ornamental, but has often been misreported and traded as Ravensara aromatica. The true ravensara oil is extracted from the leaves of an endemic species, R. aromatica (also known as R. anisata).
