From the same botanical family as Ylang Ylang, Cananga has a similar but less delicate and floral fragrance. It is sometimes used as a more affordable option to Ylang Ylang, and while considered of lesser quality for perfumery, its woodier scent is preferred in men’s fragrances.

Nature/Essence – Heady & Uplifting 

Cananga is used for balancing both oily and dry skin and to soothe itchy bites. It can be sensitising so use in very low amounts.

Cananga is helpful to ease nervous tension, and has a mood elevating effect. It is suggested to help balance blood pressure during times of stress and anger. Use with care, Cananga may cause headaches if used in high concentrations.

Diffuse a small concentration in the bedroom for reputed aphrodisiac effects and to promote sleep and relaxation.

Another hard to get out stopper.

I love the almost burnt woody smell. However will be needing a different stopper. These tight, closed plastic things are difficult to remove from the bottle. I'd recommend this product with a drip stopper.
