Ok, first things first. Raven’s ingredients are:

It is a cross between clove and nutmeg and it may also help to support our adrenal glands. It is found within the leaves and wood of the camphor tree, a large evergreen tree native to regions in southern China and Japan, as well as Taiwan, Korea, and Vietnam.
  • Lemon – may promote health, healing, physical energy, and purification. Big giver of antioxidants. Its fragrance is invigorating, enhancing and warming. It is also great for the support of our respiratory system.
  • Wintergreen – contains 99% methyl salicylate, which gives it cortisone-like properties. It may be beneficial for those people with aching bones and any other discomfort that is related to the inflammation of bones, muscles, and joints. It may also support our lymphatic system.
