Ylang ylang translates as ‘flower of flowers’. The rich, sweet, exotic perfume derived from the distillation of the petals is undoubtedly superlative and justly a favourite of the perfume production industry. You’ll also find the floral scent of ylang ylang in confectionery, soft drinks and in a whole host of household products and cosmetics.
If you’re a romantic type, ylang ylang is an essential ingredient for your homemade soaps, skincare or haircare products. Blend this organic essential oil with bergamot or grapefruit to temper the sweetness with a hint of citrus or balance out the floral notes with sandalwood or rosewood.
