Magnolia Flower Product Sheet

Magnolia Flower is sourced from China and comes from the flowers of the Magnolia tree. It is a rare and unique essential oil that has long been praised in traditional Chinese Medicine. Magnolia blossoms are generally harvested at night, when their fragrance is most potent. The Magnolia tree has broad green leaves and large white flowers with spear-shaped petals that exude an alluring scent. In South Asia, the scent of magnolia flowers is associated with renewal, growth, and new beginnings.

The main constituent of Magnolia Flower is Linalool, which is well-known for its soothing and calming capabilities. Magnolia Flower has a sweet, fruity, exotic scent that is sedative and relaxing, yet uplifting. The aroma is calming and can help ease worry and tension in both mind and body. Magnolia Flower can be helpful for minor abrasions, scars, and to increase circulation. It can help relieve congestion and also discomfort during your monthly cycle.

Diffuse or use in an aromatherapy locket. For topical applications, dilute to 1% in your favorite carrier oil, body cream, or lotion.

For a relaxing bath blend, combine 1 drop Magnolia Flower, 1 drop Orange Sweet, and 2 drops Cedarwood Himalayan, with 1 tablespoon of body wash and add to running bath water.

For menstrual cramps, blend 1-2 drops of Magnolia Flower, 3 drops Copaiba Oleoresin, and 3 drops Marjoram Sweet into 1 tablespoon of carrier oil or lotion and apply to lower abdomen in a circular motion.

5.0 5  Beautiful Scent

I ordered this immediately and am so glad I did. I love it's sweet floral scent. It is also a multi tasker. I use it to diffuse and perfume for it's gorgeous scent but I also added it to my pain blend as it is a powerful analgesic and anti-inflammatory oil. I am currently diffusing with pink berries, lime, green mandarin, jasmine and ylang. Please bring it back in the 10 ml or even 30 ml size as I never want to be without this gorgeous smell!

4.0 5  Sweet

Got this in the OOTM and it was nice. A sweet floral scent. I can only use a little of it at a time though. The sweet overpowers the floral as it dries down or as your diffuser starts to run out, so it kinda gives off a flat soda scent after awhile. I'd say it smells a lot like the flowers in bloom at first, but loses that scent after awhile!

5.0 5  Lovely and Calming Oil

I received this oil when it was the OOTM and I didn't open it for many months because I wasn't sure that I'd like it. However, when I finally opened it and diffused it for the first time, I was blown away by how great this oil smelled and by how it so calming to me. This is definitely a favorite oil of mine now and I'm glad that Plant Therapy now carries this oil.
