Cananga odorata


Plant and Oil Description

Also known as the “perfume tree”, the intoxicating harmony of floral, custard, and fruity aromas produced from cananga odorata is legendary in the cosmetics industry. Ylang-ylang is extracted from the golden, star-shaped flowers of the cananga tree, which belongs to the custard apple family, Annonaceae. The cananga tree grows natively throughout southeast Asia, Indochina, the Philippines, and Australia. Its aromatic flowers are traditionally sprinkled on the bed of newlyweds in Indonesia and are worn on ornamental necklaces by women in the Philippines. 


What’s it Good For?

  1. Homemade perfumes and colognes – The rich, custard-like scent of our ylang-ylang oil is perfect for producing your own fragrances, or for a powerful upgrade to your regular favorite soaps, lotions, and more. These make great gifts and are an excellent homemade alternative to commercial products. To make your own perfume or cologne, dilute our ylang-ylang oil in a dark-colored glass bottle with a carrier oil, ethanol, and distilled water. For a more dynamic aroma, combine with other SenseLAB essential oils that have woody, fruity, herbal, or floral essences. 
  2. Mental health – According to recent studies, aromatherapy treatments with ylang-ylang oil may help alleviate depression, increase feelings of euphoria, and even boost self-esteem. Add SenseLAB’s ylang-ylang oil to a diffuser, vaporizer, massage oil, or a hot bath before tackling a big day or whenever extra support is needed.
  3. Men’s hair oil – Ylang-ylang was an essential ingredient to produce a popular men’s hair conditioner and styler, known as macassar oil, that was used throughout Europe in the 1800s and early 1900s. Make your own macassar oil by diluting our ylang-ylang oil in SenseLAB’s fractionated coconut oil. Ylang-ylang oil can also be added to men’s hair products, such as shampoos, conditioners, and styling balms.
  4. High blood pressure – Research suggests that ylang-ylang may decrease production rates of the stress hormone cortisol. Breathing in SenseLAB’s ylang-ylang oil as a steam may help lower blood pressure, treat prehypertension, and lower stress. One study showing these effects used an aromatherapy blend of neroli (2%), lavender (20%), ylang-ylang (15%), and marjoram (10%). Add to a diffuser, a hot bath, or drape a towel overhead while breathing in the steam from a ylang-ylang infused bowl of boiling water.

Very concentrated and strong however, it smells wonderful! Only need 2-3 drops in diffuser. Nice sweet and uplifting aroma, but not sickly sweet. Love this brand of Essential Oils! Will continue to buy this product.
