Raven essential oil

This oil has a unique, powerful, and calming scent. It combines the woody scent of ravintsara and the minty scents of eucalyptus and peppermint.

Again, there are five essential oils, mixed in the right proportions to give you this powerful blend. These oils are:

1. Ravintsara essential oil

Ravintsara oil comes from the camphor tree, which is indigenous to Madagascar.

The oil does not have a camphor scent but has antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial properties and it has been used for a long time to support respiratory health.

Emotionally, this essential oil may help one to focus and calm the nerves amidst stressful situations. It can also help to improve sleep and reduce muscle pains and aches.

2. Peppermint

Peppermint essential oil is well-known for its cooling and soothing properties. It may also treat headaches, muscle aches, and other types of pain.

Peppermint also lowers stress and treats headaches and it can also help to reduce itching.

3. Eucalyptus Radiata

Eucalyptus radiata is an Australian native eucalyptus tree. It has a fresh, clean scent and it is frequently used to help with respiratory issues.

The high content of the eucalyptol compound in this oil helps in many ways. For instance, it is an anti-inflammatory and an antioxidant. It also gives the oil a nice, minty taste.

4. Lemon Essential Oil

Lemon essential oil comes from lemon peels. It has a bright, citrusy scent. It is very good for improving your mood and giving you mental clarity.

5. Raven oil

Raven essential oil can help to unblock stuffy and blocked noses, improving your breathing experience. It also improves relaxation, soothes sore muscles, reduces muscle pains, releases tension, and reduces stress.

Lemon oils are also very good for freshening the air in the house. If you have a musty smell that just won’t go away, the Raven blend of essential oil is going to help.

Raven essential oil can be used in various ways. For instance, you can use it in diffusers, in a bathtub, a chest rub, or apply it topically to the skin.

Here’s how to use it for the best results;

Aromatherapy in diffusers

Most people use essential oils in diffusers. Since the Raven essential oil is a blend of five oils, it can be quite strong. Therefore, it is recommended that you use just a few drops of the oil.

If you use your diffuser in a small room, use about 4 drops of this essential oil. You can use more if your room is bigger than 10ft by 10ft.

Always start with a few drops and observe for about 20 minutes how you’ll react to the essential oil.

You can add some more if you don’t feel any undesirable effects. Excess Raven EO can give your headaches or make you start to feel nauseous.

If this happens, it beats the purpose of using essential oil. Always use the oil sparingly, until you know that it cannot cause harm to you.

Use it as a room spray to beat the musty smell

Sometimes the rooms can be spotlessly clean but still have a musty smell. The lemon essential oil ingredient in this essential oil makes this possible.

Making raven essential oil spray is easy. Just follow the steps below to make your special air freshener:

  • Put one cup of water in a spraying bottle
  • Mix 10 drops of this oil with ½ cup of witch hazel
  • Add 5 drops of tea tree oil
  • Mix well and let it sit for a while before spraying it.

You can use this raven essential oil spray to freshen up your socks drawer, the whole closet, the basement, the garage, or the home office.

If you have had a mold infestation at home that caused this smell, it might linger for some time even after fumigating the room. Spraying the room with this essential oil blend can help freshen the air a lot.

Use it for topical application

All essential oils are potent. You should NEVER apply them directly on the skin as they can cause irritation, itching, and other symptoms.

EO blends are even more potent; the same applies to this Young Living oil. Therefore, mix it with jojoba, almond, coconut oil, or any other carrier oil (grape seed oil, red raspberry, olive, or avocado oil).

Mix 1 drop of the oil with 1 ml of your carrier oil to dilute it. If you use 1 teaspoon of your favorite carrier, use 5 drops of this essential oil. And so on!

It can make a good chest or throat rub

If using the Raven EO in a diffuser is not helping clear congested sinuses or chest fast enough, you can use it as a chest or throat rub.

As usual, dilute the essential oil with the available carrier oil and rub it on your chest or throat to decongest a stuffy nose.

Don’t apply this oil to children. Also, if you have a pre-existing skin condition, do not apply the oil on your body before speaking to your doctor.

For baths/soaks

As we’ve already noted, raven essential oil helps you to relax your tired body and mind.

It also helps to lower nervousness and stress. You can use it in the bathtub for a prolonged soak at the end of the day.

To use this oil for your evening bath, do the following:

  • Mix ½ cup of Epsom salt with 5 drops of the oil
  • Add the mixture to your warm water bathtub
  • Soak in and enjoy the relaxing feeling in your body and mind

A chilled spa towel for inhaling

One of the main Raven oil uses is inhalation, of course, when mixed with water in a diffuser.

For better and deeper breathing, you can use raven essential oil in your gym or sports towel. For that, do the following:

  • Put 8-10 drops of raven oil in a water bowl and soak your towel
  • Squeeze the water
  • Roll the towel, place it in a plastic container, and freeze it
  • Put it in your gym bag when it is time for the gym or your favorite sport

To soothe your feet

If you have been on your feet the whole day, use Raven oil to relax your feet in the evening.

Right before going to bed, mix the essential oil with your foot cream and massage your feet with it.

Put on a pair of clean socks and nourish your soles and soul.

If you can order your Raven oil from Amazon.com, Young Living, or elsewhere, it would be so much better. But at times, you might not be able to buy.

You can make yours at home, but you must have all the ingredients. If you are an aromatherapy enthusiast, it is possible you have the required oils at home.

To make 10ml of raven essential oil, you need:

  • Ravintsara oil – 35 drops
  • Eucalyptus oil – 30 drops
  • Lemon oil – 20 drops
  • Peppermint oil – 10 drops
  • Wintergreen oil – 8 drops

Mix them in your 10ml bottle. You can adjust the number of essential oil drops to your preference but make sure not to add too much above the quantities recommended above.


From what you have seen here, the Raven essential oil uses are in their tens. The health benefits are many too, from relieving headaches, backaches, coughs, colds, congestions, joint pains, muscle soreness, and others.

The beauty of this essential oil is that each of the essential oils in this blend brings in its benefits. Therefore, you don’t need to have different bottles of essential oils. The Raven oil is all you need, from a fresh-smelling home to a less congested chest to soothed feet.

When you get it, check the instructions for use carefully. Essential oils are potent in nature and they can cause serious side effects if misused.

Blends combine the power of two or more essential oils. Although they are carefully selected based on their benefits, blends are many times more potent than single oils. Handle with care, use sparingly, and keep away from the reach of children and pets.

Once the oil is finished or you don’t need it anymore, follow the instructions in our article on how to dispose of essential oils safely.
