Cananga Odorata Flower Oil
Cananga (Cananga odorata) is an evergreen tree native to Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines. Trees typically grow around 12 meters tall, with glossy oval-pointed leaves and drooping fragrant yellow flowers. These flowers can be steam-distilled to produce essential oil, which is widely known as ylang ylang oil. Ylang ylang oil is used in aromatherapy, as a flavouring in some foods, and as a fragrance.
