Ylang Ylang is a  tropical tree about 20 meters 6 high, with large fragrant, pink, mauve or yellow flowers. The yellow flowers are considered as being the best quality. There are several grades of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil, which are extracted at different times during the flower's lengthy distillation. These grades are referred to as Extra, I, II, and III.  Distillation time determines the grade, with different constituents being extracted:  the product of the first hour or two of distillation is what is called Ylang Ylang Extra; during the next few hours the grades are extracted in order and by designated amounts of time, producing Ylang I, II and III.

Ylang ylang is considered an effective antidepressant, antiseptic, antispasmodic and sedative, as well as having a positive effect on immune health, blood flow and emotions.

It has a naturally rich, floral scent that’s considered “romantic” and uplifting, making it popular for diffusing around the home and adding to beauty products.   With a scent that positively impacts emotions, it can help create a calming, relaxing atmosphere in your home or when added to your bath, lotion or other beauty care products
