Benefits and Uses of Saro Essential Oil


Benefits and Uses of Saro Essential Oil

Saro might not be the most popular essential oil out there, but it certainly shouldn’t be overlooked. It has a strong medicinal aroma with just a hint of citrus. In addition to helping boost your immune system and helping clear your airways, it’s also uplifting when life’s worries have you down. Saro Essential Oil is steam distilled from the leaves of Saro trees 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 versatile essential oil is useful for a number of things.

Let’s learn more about this amazing essential oil and check out our top uses for it.

Plant Therapy Saro Essential Oil

Helps You Breathe Clear

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 of Saro and two drops of Lavender to two teaspoons of your favorite carrier oil and massage on your chest. And if Eucalyptus is your usual go-to for respiratory concerns, try mixing it up with Saro!
