I never know that there is more of the story about that will make us having this tree to be proud as a filipino.

What is Ylang-Ylang flowers and why its special?

Its English name is “Cananga odorata“, or known in Philippines as “Ylang-ylang”. 
It is known as a perfume tree with its aromatic scent. This tropical tree can be found at Anao Tarlac in the Central Luzon Region 3 part of the Philippines. 

Ylang-Ylang name comes from a love story fairy tale

The name derived from a fairytale love story. A loving couple longs to have a child so they asked the gods to give them. The gods granted the women’s wish by showing up in her dream that she would have a daughter named “Ylang”. But there is a strict instruction that she cannot be touched by a man. The dream came into life and Ylang was born and years passed she turned into a beautiful lady. She got many suitors so her parents trapped her into a chamber. 
One day, she was able to escape and went in the garden to pick flowers and a man saw her and held her hand to say “I love You”. There was a spell in it that she cannot be touched by a man, suddenly, Ylang vanished away and a little tree with yellow petals took her place. The young man called the tree “Ylang-Ylang”. It has an aromatic scent so since then, women use its flowers as an accessory.
