Magnolia’s aroma is complex and reminiscent of sweet things like sparkling champagne, a bouquet of flowers or freshly picked fruit. It’s basically heaven in a bottle.
Therapeutically, Magnolia is said to increase circulation, act as a sedative, benefit the skin and relax both the mind and body. It makes an amazing all-natural perfume that is sure to attract compliments. The flower of the Magnolia plant is steam distilled.
