Known as Flower Of Flowers, Ylang Ylang is a tall tropical tree about 20 meters (60 feet) high with large fragrant, pink, mauve or yellow flowers. It was a popular ingredient of hair preparations in Europe and in Indonesia Ylang Ylang has traditionally been strewn on the beds of newlyweds.
Our organic certified Ylang Ylang oil is 100% pure with a sweet floral aroma. There are several grades of Ylang Ylang essential oil which are extracted at different times during the flower's distillation. Our organic Ylang Ylang essential oil is the result of the uninterrupted 20-24 hour water and steam distillation of fresh flowers, instead of the usual 14-20 hour distillation, in which Yang Ylang extra, I, II and III are kept separate.
