Ylang Ylang #1 Essential Oil
Botanical name: Cananga Odorata
Extraction method: As steam distillation preserves the volatile compounds in Ylang-ylang flowers best, it’s the preferred extraction method. Several grades of Ylang-ylang Essential Oil are extracted at different stages throughout the flower's lengthy distillation process. These grades are referred to as Extra, I, II, and III. Ylang-ylang Extra (the Essential Oil being fractioned off during the first hour or two during the steam distillation process) contains the smallest aromatic molecules and most delicate notes, so this grade is highly prized in the perfumery and aromatherapy industries.
Our Ylang-ylang Essential Oil is grade I, which is obtained during the second or third hour of the distillation process.
Description: The Ylang-ylang tree thrives in the tropics and can grow to about 20 meters (60 feet) in height. The large pink, mauve or yellow Ylang-ylang flowers are popularly known as the flower of flowers. Cheerful yellow heads are considered having the best quality.
Blends well with: Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lavender, Neroli, Rosewood, and Sandalwood.
Aromatic scent: Ylang-ylang #1 Organic Essential Oil has a sweet, exotic, floral scent that is one of the most sought after in the perfumery and aromatherapy industries.
