At The ‘Olentia Ligno’ is our fragrant tree plantation in the medium sloped spot south of the farm. We have here our major crops, producing base notes that are major raw ingredients in world perfumery. Aquilaria Malaccensis (Agarwood), Magnolia Champaca (Champaca), Plumeria Alba (Frangipani), Cananga Odorata (Ylang-ylang), Jasminum Sambac (Arabian Jasmin) and the alleycrops; Pogostemon Cablin (Patchouli) and Hedychium Coronarium (Butterfly Ginger)
We use live fence of Vetiver Grass (Chrysopogon Zizanioides) to determine the property line which is the major source of masculine scent Vetiver Perfume, aside of course from controlling soil erosion and moisture conservation it can gives. Leaves is reaching up to three meters tall and root system is up to seven meters in 3years time.
Protecting the crops from strong winds as Windbreakers are the Canarium Trees (Canarium Ovatum and Canarium Luzonicum), What’s known globally as the Manila Elemi comes from the species Canarium luzonicum, known locally as “piling liitan,” “sahing,” “malapili” and “pagsahingin.” Naturally, the tree secretes an aromatic, resinous substance. With the aid of some cutting tools, the secretion of resin can be induced by chipping off parts of the bark. Both are great alternatives to Frankincense in terms of fragrance. Benefits of Elemi Essential Oil include anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, analgesic, soothes muscles, reduces wrinkles and aides in minor respiratory problems. It has also found increasing usage as an aid in meditation and higher spiritual awareness because of Elemi’s affinity with magical and religious consciousness.
