Cinnamosma fragrans - Madagascar

Saro is an aromatic evergreen tree that can reach up to 15 ft in height. Native to Madagascar, Saro's native name is Mandravasarotra, meaning "what keeps evil/illness away." It's commonly thought to help aid in respiratory, anti-bacterial, and immune deficiency issues.

Saro is considered a top-tone oil with a pungent, fresh camphoric and slightly sweet fragrance. Some describe it as having a hint of citrus or lemony fragrance.
This clean, effervescent, Ravintsara-like aroma is reminiscent of a combination of Cajeput, Neroli, and Tea Tree.


Indigenous to Madagascar, Saro comes from the leaves of an evergreen shrub. The twigs are angular on younger stems, peppered with a few cloves of lenticels. Young leaves are punctuated and translucent. As adults, they are alternate, simple, as long as wide opaque, dark green, evergreen, punctuated grainy.

Extraction: Steam distillation of the fresh leaves and a liquid extracted from the leaves serves for its highly effective healing properties in the treatment of wounds and abscesses.

Saro is a powerful antiviral, broad spectrum antibacterial and antifungal making it an ideal oil for the seasons with increased occurrences of colds and flu. It is also anti-parasitic, anti-catarrhal, expectorant, immunomodulator, antispasmodic, nervous system re-equilibrating, and antitussive.

Mandravasarotra or Saro is pungent in fragrance and therefore lifts energy up towards the chest and head. It’s invigorating, but in the gentlest way. As it softly but effectively opens the sensory orifices of the head and expands the chest it can foster a sense of calm and ease that comes from being mentally alert and present.

Though it is not a fragrance profile that one would normally associate with “calming” effects, it has been known to help those who suffer with insomnia; particularly with an overactive mind underpinned with fatigue and even exhaustion.
