YLANG YLANG | Essential Oil

  • $15.00


Pure Cananga odorata essential oil.

Ylang ylang is the essential oil extracted from the large fragrant, pink, mauve or yellow flowers of Cananga odorata. The cananga tree, or perfume tree, is a tropical tree native to India, parts of Indochina, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, and parts of Australia.

There are various grades of ylang ylang essential oil which refer to the fraction of distillation. Ours is "extra" grade, from the first fraction, and is the highest quality available. It has a very powerful, floral, and intensely sweet odour similar to jasmine. The dryout is pleasant, soft, sweet, slightly spicy and balsamic-floral.

It is one of the most commonly used scents in perfumery and is traditionally used in aromatherapy for its mood-boosting properties. In magic, it is related to love and sexuality.

ASPECTS: floral · heady · sweet · rich
APPEARANCE: thin, clear, pale yellow

Presented in a 5ml or 15ml black glass bottle with a euro dropper top that may have to be removed depending on the viscosity of the item selected. Please note that essential oils and absolutes vary widely in thickness and consistency.

Essential oils, absolutes, and other pure plant extracts should not be applied to the skin without being properly diluted in a cosmetic carrier (such as jojoba oil, ethanol, epsom salts, etc.) Always patch-test when using an essential oil or absolute for the first time, and research whether or not the extract you are using is skin-safe, or that it is appropriate for its intended use. Do not ingest essential oils or apply them internally, and avoid contact with the eyes. Keep out of reach of children and pets, and consult a knowledgeable health practitioner before use when pregnant or breastfeeding. Store in a cool and dry area.
