Known in Bali as jepun, and as kamboja throughout the rest of Indonesia, the frangipani is from the genus plumeria, a name by which the flowering tree is also widely known throughout the world.

While they are native to Central and South America and the Caribbean, the trees are now common naturalised plants throughout South East Asia. And, as they're among my favourite flowers, I'm pleased to say they also grow in abundance in many parts of Australia.

The distinctive flower has evolved into a motif of the tropics and is one of the best loved blooms in the world.

The scent is divine and is used in incense, such as Nag Champa, and all manner of lotions and potions, from aromatherapy oil to perfumes, soap, and body butter. (Why not put the Etsy search engine to the test and see for yourself!)

In Indonesia, and the Philippines, especially among those of Chinese descent, the frangipani is affiliated with ghosts and graveyards. Frangipani trees are planted in cemeteries in both countries.

But for those with Hindu or Buddhist beliefs, such as the people of Bali, the flower is associated with temples and is widely used in offerings to the gods.

The frangipani was said to be a favourite of the Hindu deity Lord Krishna. According to Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs (by Scott Cunningham; Llewellyn Publications, 1985) the frangipani is associated with the feminine, ruled by Venus, its element is water, its deity is Buddha, its power is love and its magical uses are in love spells.
“The fragrance of the flower is never borne against the breeze; but the fragrance of human virtues diffuses itself everywhere.” ~ from the Hindu epic, the Ramayana.
