An exotic and sensual oil with relaxing qualities. Soothes and uplifts and has a regulating effect on excited and nervous conditions. Good for both oily and dry skin. Sweet heady floral aroma. This plant is native to tropical Asia and is produced from the flowers of the Annonaceae family. The oil is grown commercially in Madagascar, the Philippines and Reunion islands. The essential oil is produced from the flowers year round. These flowers are yellow and star shaped in form.
Extraction of the oil
Four grades of oil are available reflecting the distillation process and can produce inconsistent standards. The oil is graded into four grades or distillations with 'extra' being the finest.
Ylang Ylang is a deeply relaxing fragrance with a long tradition of use in men's fragrances. The oil also has a balancing effect allowing strong emotions to be moderated. The oil also has a rejuvenating effect upon skin and hair. Good quality Ylang Ylang will have a smooth aroma which is not overly strong and which lacks the thick, dominant sweetness of some distillations.
Ylang Ylang is used for its calming effects. A few drops in a massage oil or a soothing bath brings great soothing benefits. Ylang Ylang is best used in moderation. When blended, the oil requires from some time to mature and develop. Blended oils benefit from a lower dilution of Ylang than with many other essential oils.
