Cananga essential oil is steam distilled from the Cananga tree (var. macrophylla). The Cananga tree shares many traits with the Ylang Ylang tree, including their genus, species and the appearance of their flowers. Some even use cananga essential oil as a cheaper alternative to ylang ylang essential oil. Cananga essential oil has less of a floral aroma and is chemically different, as well as having different therapeutic uses than ylang ylang essential oil. Because of this difference, some people prefer the lighter aroma of cananga over ylang ylang. Cananga essential oil can help oily or irritated skin and insect bites. It can also be used aromatically to help relieve anxiety, reduce depression and stress. It is a middle note in perfumery and is a beneficial ingredient for relaxing blends.
