I love this oil! It is uplifting and yet relaxing. It seems to offer support to everything positive. The fragrance right under the nose seems very slightly menthol ... yet not in time nor in a general way. I feel optimistic and ‘ready to go’ after applying Ravintsara! It is my current favorite oil.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the smell of this oil. I feel so uplifted when I use it. When I'm crabby, it seems to lift me out of my mood faster.
