Known as the “flower of flowers,” ylang ylang (pronounced “ee-lang ee-lang”) can be found flourishing in the tropics of Asia, showing off their slender, butterscotch-yellow flowers and emitting their intoxicating aroma. The Cananga odorata tree from which these flowers are harvested grows up to 60 feet tall and blooms year-round. It has historically been a treasured tree for its wonderfully fragrant flowers, which have been used for generations to create macassar hair oil in the South Pacific and to romantically welcome newlyweds to their bed for the first time in an age-old Indonesian tradition.
Ylang Ylang has a distinctly unique distillation process, which makes it a truly special essential oil. Steam distilled from its star-like blooms, the lengthy process yields different grades of essential oil depending on how long it has been distilled: ylang ylang I, II, III and ylang ylang extra. The difference between these grades is most significant in the scent the oil produces.
Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
Ylang ylang extra is considered the top-grade of the ylang ylang oils. It requires the shortest distillation time and bears a delicate, floral-sweet aroma. Once this first oil is collected, the distillation process continues and I, II and III are subsequently collected. In essential oil distillation, there is no standardized time when I, II and III are designated to be collected, which may result in inconsistent strength and fragrance of the aromas. However, in general, the oil becomes more potent and less sweet-smelling as the distillation continues.
Ylang ylang has long been celebrated and recently researched for its ability to offer whole-being relaxation.** It can offer ease of draining stress and tension while uplifting the spirits and sharpening the senses.** The exotic and captivating aroma is also revered as an aphrodisiac, perhaps due to the flower’s link to sensationally romantic Indonesian wedding nights...**
Many beauty products contain ylang ylang oil, and not just for its lovely scent!
