A visit to the Anao Ylang Ylang Plantation and Laboratory
I, Shermaine of Sherfriends blog together with the Department of Tourism Region 3 and the bloggers of Tarlac, Bulacan, Pampanga and Mag Travel and Tours visited its plantation and its center where they turned its flowers into an aromatic essential oil that was being added in one of the world class perfume of Chanel 5.
It was 1994 when Anao started this.
Inside the laboratory, the flowers was cooked in a container that has a capacity of more than 20 kilos and was cooked for 30 minutes.
Only the flowers with a red spot in it which signifies that it is already ripe are the ones used for extraction.
