Cananga is an exotic and sultry essential oil with a warm, sweet, floral aroma. Even though it is a relative of Ylang Ylang, this floral has a softer, more subtle scent that is fantastic for perfumery. Use this essential oil to help promote calmness, soothe nervousness and create a relaxing environment. Cananga is also great for helping alleviate sore muscles and joints as well as supporting healing for small scrapes and bruises.
