Specification of Cananga Oil

The Cananga tree (cananga odorata macrophylla) belongs to the same botanical family as the tree which produces Ylang Ylang essential oil. It is a tall, tropical tree which grows up to 98 feet high and the oil is extracted from its large, aromatic, yellow flowers, identical to those of the ylang ylang. The cananga tree is native to tropical Asia, and the oil, that is steam-distilled from the flowers,  is distributed from indonesia islands (Java and Maluku). Cananga and Ylang Ylang essential oils have different (yet similar) aromatic properties. Traditionally, Cananga was used by local people to treat infectious diseases, such as malaria. Cananga is now used in aromatherapy to treat insect bites, for skin and hair care, to relieve anxiety, depression and stress related illness. It also has antiseptic, sedative, aphrodisiac, and nervine properties. It is often used in soap perfumery and men's fragrances but is generally considered of a lesser quality than Ylang Ylang, as it has a heavier and less delicate aroma.
