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  Smells lovely

I have seen this oil used primarily as a perfume ingredient, but it is more than that. Surprised not to see Lavender among the [blends well with] options. I have mostly used his to give a nice floral lift to blends, and find the scent calming. A little goes a long way. I intend to try it for other applications.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

5.0 5  Love this!

I was super excited to see this one offered! I love floral scents and use them to make soaps and lotions. I couldn\'t wait to smell this one when it arrived in the mail and I was not disappointed. The sweet floral aroma is amazing! I usually gift a lot of my DIY soaps and lotions but I\'m thinking of keeping this scent to myself.

2.0 5  Very strong

I received this as OOTM and tried to like it but couldn\'t get past the smell. It\'s funny how others can smell something different. Both my husband and my teenager thought it smelled great, but it had an overpowering not so pleasant smell to me.

recommend  No, I wouldn't recommend this to a friend.
