since start of pandemic we have used Ravintsara on wrists, 10-12 drops on a scarf around our necks when going out and in our Nebulizer when we return home from shopping. so far so good
This oil has a robust aroma.
I've been using this for years. It's a staple in my kit during flu and cold season. I also put a few drops on tissue and carry in my pocket while travelling and on planes, malls etc.
