Ylang Ylang Essential Oil, Pure and Natural

Botanical Name: Cananga odorata


General description of Ylang Ylang:
A tall tropical tree, about 20 metres (65ft) high with large, tender, fragrant flowers, which can be pink, mauve or yellow. The yellow flowers are considered best for the extraction of essential oil.


Extraction process of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil:
Essential oil by water or steam distillation from the freshly picked flowers. The first distillate is called Ylang Ylang extra, which is the top grade. There are then three further successive distillates called Grades 1,2 and 3. A "complete" oil is also produced which represents the total of "unfractionated" oil, but this is sometimes constructed by blending Ylang Ylang 1 and 2 together, which are the two least popular grades.


Description of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil:
Ylang Ylang extra is a pale yellow oily liquid with an intensely sweet, soft, floral - balsamic, slightly spicy scent-a good oil has a creamy rich topnote. A very intriguing perfume oil in its own right, it also blends well with rosewood, jasmine, nutmeg, patchouli, clove, sandalwood, verbena, vetiver, opopanax, bergamot, mimosa, cassie, peru balsam, rose, tuberose, costus and others. It is an excellent fixative. The other grades lack the depth and richness of the Ylang Ylang extra.


Main therapeutic properties of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil:
Aphrodisiac, antiseptic, anti - depressant, hypotensive, sedative.


Uses of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil:
Skin care: Acne, hair growth, hair rinse, insect bites, irritated and oily skin, and general skin care.
