Ylang Ylang Extra - Organic
Our organic Ylang Ylang Extra is intensely sweet, highly floral, and ethereal, with watery undertones. This fraction of Ylang Ylang is generally the most desirable grade of all the ylang ylang oils and usually comprises about a third to nearly half of the total distillate. It is used mainly in high-end perfumery.
The Extra fraction of Ylang Ylang is the oil that is collected from the first hour of distillation, the I (first) fraction is from the next 2-1/2 hours, the II (second) fraction from the next 3-4 hours of distillation, and the III (third) fraction is collected from the last hours of the distillation process. Ylang Ylang Complete is a continuous distillation of 6-7 hours, rendering a full-spectrum, non-fractionated (complete) oil.
Ylang Ylang essential oil has many uses in aromatherapy - it is applied in skincare for acne, on the scalp in rinses to encourage hair growth, to soothe insect bites, for oily skin, and for general skincare.1,2,3 Its soothing effect on the heart is employed in cases of high blood pressure4, heart palpitations, rapid heartbeat, and as a general sedative.5,6 It is also indicated for depression7, insomnia, stress-related disorders8, and is particularly helpful for cases of anxiety in, or fear of intimacy resulting in frigidity or impotence.9
The intoxicating aroma of Ylang Ylang conjures palpable images of the flowers’ paradisial origins: palm trees swaying over sun-drenched beaches, exotic spices, peaceful island breezes, gossamer rays of moonlight, and the rhythm of the ocean’s song. Such is the power of Ylang Ylang’s amazing aroma for easing the mind, as well as for its effect in the composition of perfumes. It is one of the finest aromatic materials in the perfume industry.

Customer Reviews for Ylang Ylang Extra - Organic
- True ylang-ylang Review by Keith
- There was a beautiful ylang-ylang tree on the block where I lived in Key West. When in bloom it would scent up the entire block. This essence of ylang-ylang is the most true to the scent of that tree in Key West that I have ever smelled. My favorite ylang-ylang essence for sure! (Posted on 2/18/13)
