INTERESTING RANTS & RAVES:
Though our cananga essential oil is grown and distilled in the neighboring island of Java (& of the finest quality I might add), I am reminded of this intoxicatingly-sweet smelling blossom daily. Every morning when I wake and look out from the 2nd floor open doors of my bedroom, (a converted traditional balinese rice barn) I see 2 gorgeous cananga trees standing tall, side by side, swaying drunkenly in the warm tropical trade wind as if young love together walking, bashfully, accidentally-on-purpose glazing the hand of the other. They droop and dangle, almost drag their leafy appendages as if the weight of their huge pungent blossoms are a burden. All of this and I haven't even gotten out of bed yet.

SPECIFIC TO THIS PRODUCT:
Coconut oil has been used throughout Asia and the Pacific for thousands of years as both a food and a medicine. The coconut is a primary source of health enhancing elements- something the Balinese Islanders have known for centuries. Pure Coconut Oil is handmade from fresh coconuts retaining the natural nutrients, has deep moisturizing and hydrating properties as well as anti-oxidant power, thus helping your skin repair and protect itself from the trials of everyday life. Coconut oil is one of nature's richest skin moisturizers; it is good for all skin types and ideal for skin exposed to dry or cold weather. Soaps made with pure coconut oil create a wonderful, thick rich lather and leaves no residue on your skin for a fresh-clean feeling. Our coconut oil is handmade and purchased from small traditional producers of the neighboring village.
Our coconut & mandarin natural soap has the highest level of honey amongst all our soaps. Honey lays down a clear, protective film on the skin that helps maintain moisture. It hydrates and soothes the skin and is thought to be slightly antiseptic & bacteriostatic. It is used as an emollient in soap. Honey is added at the end of the soapmaking process to ensure all botanical properties of the honey are left intact.
Then we chose to combine Cananga and Mandarin essential oils to create a deliciously soothing, tension-relieving, spicy-sweet, citrus aroma, with fresh floral notes. This combination stimulates new cell growth, regenerates tissue and minimizes lines and wrinkles. Mandarin essential oil smoothes and treats the skin, relieves skin pain and is non-irritating. Mandarin promotes healing and is great for mature skin. A toning blossom oil, Cananga essential oil can help balance sebaceous glands of either dry or oily skin. This essential oil combination has a refreshing, gentle, balancing effect and is considered an aphrodisiac.
Cananga essential oil is from the same tree as Ylang Ylang, but Ylang Ylang essential oil is made in a matter of hours after the blossoms are picked.
