Plumeria, Plumeria

Posted January 29, 2013 by Paulina

Nothing speaks of “tropical” quite like the exotic beauty and intoxicating fragrance of Plumeria (Frangipani). What is especially unique about this flower’s exquisite scent is that it is continuously being released by the plant’s metabolism, not made or stored as an essential oil (which most plant fragrance molecules are).

As so eloquently described by one famed aromatherapist, it is as though its fragrance were “the breath of the living plant.” I could happily inhale Plumeria’s sweet breath, anytime!
