More info

History: Ylang-ylang is often referred to as "poor man's jasmine". In Indonesia, Ylang-ylang flower petals are strewn upon the bed of newlywed couples. Ylang-ylang was a popular ingredient of hair preparations in Europe and was known as Macassar oil.

Characteristics: Cananga odorata or Ylang ylang, is a member of the annonaceae family of plants growing in tropical Asia. Ylang ylang Oil is distilled from the cananga tree's greenish-yellow, starfish-shaped flowers, produced year-round. 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. The Ylang-ylang extra is drawn off during the first phase and is generally considered the best quality for aromatherapy and perfumery. However, grades I, II & III should not be considered inferior, and the premier grade is so expensive that it is rarely produced. Ylang-ylang Extra Essential Oil has a sweet, exotic, floral scent that is one of the most sought after aromas.

Clinical Studies:

Indications: Due to its ability to anchor perfumes and blend with a variety of other scents, Ylang ylang Oil is primarily used by fragrance manufactures today. In aromatherapy, Ylang ylang is considered to be an aphrodisiac and is often used as a substitute for the more expensive jasmine. It also evokes feelings of deep, languid calm that melt away anxiety, tension and stress. Ylang ylang tends to predominate, so it should be used in small amounts on its own or when blending with other oils.

Personality Profile:

Subtle Aromatherapy:

Mode of Administration: Aroma lamp, bath, diffusor, light bulb ring, liquid candle, massage, mist spray.

Safety:  Ylang ylang Extra Essential Oil can cause sensitivity on some people and excessive use of it may lead to headaches and nausea.
