Saro (Mandravasarotra) Cinnamosma fragrans (2689 – 5ml)

Saro is is an immunostimulant with superb anti-bacterial effects but without containing phenols. Use it as an inhalation oil, and as a support for all kinds of infections, including the skin, urinary tract, and digestion. The plant, which comes from Madagascar, is traditionally used against ‘evil spirits’ and may be used against the ‘evil spirit’ of today: burnout, fatigue and overwork. The scent is fresh and camphoraceous with a floral sweetness.

Saro is a bit Ravintsara-like in its anti-infectious property. In ayurvedic terms it purifies prana and udana, and you can use if for voice problems with Frankincense. Blend Saro with Plai, Kunzea or Fragonia.

I find Oshadhi oils to be simply exquisite. Their fragrances are so rich and full bodied. It is easy to immediately discern the difference their insistence on extraction by slow distillation makes. The larger molecules make the oils like beautifully aged, smooth fine wines! Last week I ordered 1ml o ...
