Ylang Ylang essential oil benefits

Connect with the soothing and sensual flower of wilderness.

Ylang Ylang flowers blossom on the Cananga Odonata tree, native from Indonesia. Nicknamed ‘the flower of flowers’, Ylang Ylang has been used for centuries in many local religious ceremonies as a blessing during wedding events, in perfumes, but also in aromatherapy as the unique properties of this delicate flower were observed very early on. 

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil is obtained by distilling the star-shaped flower to release a sweet, floral, fresh and almost fruity scent. This process creates five different classifications of Essential Oils depending on the number of times the flower is extracted. Increasingly concentrated, each distillation has a distinct profile. The last one, the most intense one, unleashes a herbaceous and rich scent, the purest essence of the tropical flower of love. 

Once captured, the delicate and exotic elixir presents many benefits. Full of potent antioxidants, it is the perfect oil to soothe the soul and cherish your body.
