Essential Oils Living through the senses is beautiful. Scientists have found that emotions can be remembered through essential oils which is why scents are so powerful. “Plants wouldn’t have evolved to produce essential oils unless they were serving a purpose and that I mean a direct purpose for the plant. Everything else is additional. Why else would a plant make a chemical that is complicated, if it didn’t have a purpose?”. We love to find notes that evoke curiosity that give way to beautiful memories that enhance your wellbeing. After all, that is what we stand for! We don’t use fragrance, we use essential oils to create that sense of purpose.


At Yanga Natural, we want to draw you closer to nature. Yes Nature & Nurture.
