Ylang ylang (Cananga odorata) essential oil has many uses but it is especially known for its romantic aroma, soothing capacities and long-time associations with peace and happiness.
Aura Cacia Ylang Ylang III Essential Oil comes from flowers in Madagascar that are distilled immediately after they are picked in the morning, resulting in an oil with an especially fresh floral aroma.
Ylang ylang essential oil blends well with lavender, rose, neroli, sandalwood, vanilla, clove bud, vetiver, patchouli, jasmine, geranium and citrus oils.
Ylang ylang essential oil is the only oil separated into three different fractions during the distillation process: ylang ylang extra, ylang ylang premier and ylang ylang III. When the oil reaches a certain molecular weight, it's removed and called extra. If it distills a little bit longer, it becomes premier. Ylang ylang III remains until distillation is completed, and is generally a heavier oil, prized for its base notes.
There are so many ways to use essential oils! The above suggested uses are just an introduction to a wide variety of quick tips and recipes available on auracacia.com. Because essential oils are highly concentrated, we recommend diluting them in a carrier product like skin care oil, water, unscented lotion, or unscented liquid soap.
