The Champaca tree is known as one of the most ancient flowering plants, believed to have been pollinated by beetles 90 millions years ago before bees became the prolific pollinators that we know today. The velvety, sultry aroma of Champaca is truly unique and the blossoms of this plant have long been used in traditional religious practices and ceremonies and often times adorn temples and places of worship. Michelia Champaca is native to the Philippines and the Indonesian islands, but now also grows in places far west of its origin - India, southeast China, Réunion, and Madagascar. The CO2 extract of Champaca is free of solvent residue, contains far less waxes, is chemically superior to a distillate, and has a fragrance profile close to that of the fresh flowers. It is aphrodisiac, emollient, febrifuge. Used to warm, calm, reduce stress, aid breathing and induce euphoria.
