If you’re looking to learn about different essential oils, then you’re in the right place! Read below to find out more about Cananga essential oil and its many wonders.
Originally from Indonesia, the flowers of Cananga odorata are steam distilled to produce a sweet, strong and exotic aroma that’s deeply floral. Cananga is a middle note oil that blends well with Bergamot, Cassia, and Vetiver.
Cananga has several different benefits, including reducing oil in skin and hair. It can also be used to help reduce high blood pressure. When applied topically, Cananga can help relieve itchiness and inflammation from insect bites. If you’re looking to make a room spray or perfume that has a pleasant floral aroma, this oil would be a great addition. Combined with Vetiver, it could be beneficial to use at nighttime in a diffuser or pillow spray. To ease mild tension or stress, add to a homemade bath blend for nighttime relaxation. Cananga can be used as an aromatic substitute for the highly popular aphrodisiac Ylang Ylang.
