History: The Cananga is a common village tree in Malaysia. Its fragrant flowers are worn for personal adornment. Long used for its sensual and aphrodisiacal properties, the fresh flowers are strewn on the beds of newly married couples. It was introduced to the island of Runion in the western Indian Ocean in the late 18th century, and from there to Nossi-B and the Comoro Islands about a century ago. The oil distilled from the flowers is known as Cananga oil.
