Ylang-Ylang Essential Oil is steam distilled from certified organic ylang-ylang flowers, Cananga odorata. The ylang-ylang tree, sometimes also known as the cananga tree is a tree that grows in tropical climates. The vivid yellow blooms are quite unique in appearance and are highly aromatic. Although the tree goes by both the common names of Ylang Ylang and Cananga, essential oil that is commonly referred to as Cananga Essential Oil is typically less preferred and generally differs in aroma and composition.
Because of its great use in perfumery applications, Ylang Ylang Essential Oil is traditionally distilled for varying lengths to produce essential oils with differing constituents and aromatic profiles. Organic Ylang Ylang Extra Essential Oil is the essential oil that is collected shortly after the distillation begins. It is most widely used in fragrancing applications. Additional distillations known as Ylang Ylang I, II and III are also sometimes performed, depending on the distiller and the application.
Our Organic Ylang Ylang Complete Essential Oil is the essential oil that results from a full, uninterrupted distillation. Aromatically, it possesses a beautifully exotic, floral aroma with slightly woody characteristics.
