About the Plant
The ylang ylang tree, which originated in the Philippines, belongs to the custard apple family. Today it is also cultivated in Java, Sumatra, Comoro Islands, Zanzibar, Haiti and Madagascar. In the Malayan language, ylang ylang means “flower of flowers.” There is no flower more luscious or sweetly fragranced. This precious nectar is commonly distilled in "fractions,” meaning at various stages the oil is taken off and then the distillation continues, producing other grades of oil. Ylang Ylang Complete is a compounding of all the stages of distillation.
The velvety yellow flowers produce a heady and sensual oil very similar to Jasmine. Like Jasmine and Rose, the blossoms are harvested and processed in the early morning. The spirit of Ylang Ylang Oil is best described as radiant, passionate and quintessentially feminine, so it is no wonder Ylang Ylang Oil is revered around the world as an aphrodisiac, stirring the blood and engaging the heart and mind toward romance.
