Full Description Plant Therapy

The Northwestern coast of Madagascar is home to a small evergreen tree known as Saro. It is light yellow and will often be found close to the water or in rocky, shady areas. The Oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the Saro tree. Although the aroma of Saro is somewhat medicinal oils like Tea Tree, it gives off hints of citrus, which give it an invigorating scent.

Saro contains a high level of 1,8-cineole, which makes it an excellent addition to any blend aimed at fighting off seasonal germs. The Saro tree’s local name is “Mandravasarotra,” which means “which keeps bad things away.” As this suggests, the oil is still used to boost immunity by keeping germs away. It can also be used for irritation when blended with skin-nourishing oils.

This oil is versatile and helpful to the mind, body, and spirit. The strong scent invigorates the senses and uplifts the soul, helping to alleviate worry and sadness. It supports respiratory health when it is diffused or inhaled.

For respiratory health support, use Saro to create a steam facial bath, a respiratory blend, or diffuse into the air. Add one drop of Saro to hot water (not boiling) in a bowl; drape a towel over the head, close your eyes, relax, and breathe in for a few minutes. A respiratory blend can also be made by combining two drops of Saro with two drops of Lavender and two teaspoons of a carrier oil; apply to the chest, neck, or back area to relieve respiratory tightness.
It can also be used in the diffuser to help with breathing while suffering from respiratory concerns. Diffusing it throughout the day can also be invigorating to the senses that can reduce worry and feeling down.
