Saro essential oil is steam distilled from leaves of Saro tree found on the coast of Madagascar. It is called “Mandravasarotra” by the locals, which translates “which keeps the bad things away”. This tree is definitely aptly named! Because it has a high 1,8 Cineole content, this essential oil is useful for a number of things. Check out our top four ways to use Saro.
One of the best uses available for Saro essential oil is to help with breathing and respiratory support. One of the easiest ways to take advantage of these benefits is to steam. Take a pot of water and heat it up, but don’t let it boil. Add just one drop of Saro and breathe in the steam. Don’t worry, one drop is all you need. If you prefer other methods, you can also create a chest rub! Add two drops Saro and two drops Lavender to two teaspoons of your favorite carrier oil and massage on your chest.
Also, diffusing is always a great option if you’re looking to help with respiratory concerns. Plus check out this recipe for an inhaler blend.
