Magnolia Flower Essential Oil (Magnolia Alba) is also known as the White Champaca, White Sandalwood, or White Jade Orchid Essential Oil. It comes from a flowering plant — a hybrid of Magnolia Champaca and Magnolia Montana — which grows in the tropics of China.
Magnolia Flower is a rare and unique essential oil that’s steam distilled from the strongly fragrant flowers of Magnolia tree. In traditional Chinese medicine, Magnolia flowers were used to move qi throughout the body and for cough relief. In aromatherapy, Magnolia Flower Essential Oil is known as a calming, relaxing, and soothing oil. This is due in large part to its high content of linalool, an anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety compound, which is also a major component of Rosewood, Lavender, and Neroli Essential Oils.
