Living Libations Magnolia Leaf Essential Oil harnesses the ancient wonder of the Champaca Tree, which has been revered as sacred in Indian culture for centuries. Wild-crafted in the heart of India, this oil is steam-distilled to harvest the natural healing properties of Magnolia leaves. Unlike the sweet, freesia-like scent of the Magnolia flower, the Magnolia leaf exudes an aroma that is greener, woodier, and more complex. A powerful decongestant and emollient, our Magnolia Leaf Essential Oil is a rare and precious expression of the healing wonders of nature.

Our Magnolia Leaf Essential Oil contains the healing properties of a species of trees that first came into existence some 95 million years ago (1). Talk about ancient allies! The Magnolia tree, also known as the Champaca Tree or the Michelia champaca, is revered by the Indian people for its powerful aphrodisiac qualities. The flowers of this sacred tree are even used in weddings and other religious ceremonies.
The leaf of the Magnolia tree may be particularly beneficial for strengthening weakened skin, and is often used as an under-eye treatment in beauty products. In addition to calming frazzled nerves and promoting a sense of peace and well-being, the aphrodisiacal qualities of Magnolia Leaf Oil make it a glorious confidence booster. Beyond inspiring a love for others, this oil instigates a heightened sense of self-love, helping those who use it to see and experience their own inner and outer beauty.
Enjoy the sacred in the everyday with Living Libations Magnolia Leaf Essential Oil, a faithful supporter of self-love, self-expression, and lasting health.
“He told of the Magnolia, spread high as a cloud, high over-head! The Cypress and her spire; of flowers that with one scarlet gleam cover a hundred leagues, and seem to set the hills on fire.”
-- William Wordsworth, 18th-19th century
“Champaca is an evergreen tree native to Asia. The tree grows to a height of about 65 feet, has long glossy green leaves and small, fragrant white, yellow, or red flowers that develop into yellow-green fruits.”
-- Carol Schiller and David Schiller
