Ylang Ylang Extra Essential Oil

$27.42 - $58.21

Cananga Odorata - origin India, flowering tops.

Ylang Ylang offers an intensely sweet aroma packed full of creamy, rich floral esters.  The oil comes from the flowers, which are considered an aphrodisiac.  If you want to add a strong floral aspect to a blend this is your oil.  It is like the aroma equivalent of eating a sugary dessert.

This oil is the "extra" portion of the distillation and is considered the top grade oil.  Ylang Ylang offers up its sweetest chemical constituents early in the distillation, and portions are pulled off in succession to create the Extra, I, II, and III oils.  Commonly the oil found in health food stores is the earthier III oil which is the last portion of the distillation.  If that is the only version of Ylang you have ever smelled then Extra will knock your socks off.

Ylang Ylang is useful for perfumery and also can have some insect repellant properties.  It is nontoxic and nonirritant, however the intensity of the aroma may be overpowering for some people so it is advised to blend it well with other oils to decrease the intensity, though it can be used alone.

Blending: This oil is considered a middle note and will help bind and fix other aromas together.  It blends well with Peru Balsam, Myrrh, Frankincense, Rosewood, Bergamot, Rose, Tuberose, and many other oils with floral and balsalmic aspects.
Aromatherapy uses: depression, nervous conditions and stress, insomnia, release of anger, general skincare applications
