Ylang ylang essential oil is wild-crafted from the greenish-yellow star-shaped flowers of the cananga tree. There are several grades of ylang ylang essential oil which are extracted at different times during the flower’s lengthy distillation (these grades are referred to as extra, I, II, & III). Ylang ylang ‘complete’ is drawn off during the first phase and is generally considered the best quality for aromatherapy and perfumery.
With its rich and floral aroma, ylang ylang is a popular ingredient in luxury fragrances and skin care products. Ylang ylang essential oil blends well with bergamot, grapefruit, lavender, neroli, rosewood and sandalwood.
The properties of ylang ylang are believed to be a natural remedy while spiritualists claim that people in need of its benefits are instinctively drawn towards it.
Historically, ylang ylang flower petals were strewn across the beds of newlywed couples in Indonesia, whilst in Europe the oil was once used as an ingredient in hair preparations.
