Today, let us explore the world of plants…flowers to be exact. In my tiny garden, I have this plant that I love. When its greenish yellow flowers bloom, the scent they permeate is intoxicating. The whiff is so heavenly. This plant is called Kenanga or Ylang-ylang.
Ylang-ylang’s oil is widely used in making perfumes and aromatherapy essential oils. My beloved mother likes to pick the flowers, put it in bowls and let its smell fills our living room.
