  • Traditional Uses

    In Indonesia it is traditional for newlywed couples to find these blossoms spread on their marriage bed. In its country of origin, the ylang ylang blossoms were immersed in coconut oil until it had absorbed all the fragrance. The oil was then used to prevent fever and infectious diseases. In Victorian times, Ylang Ylang Oil was used as a hair treatment.

    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.”

    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. After the oil classified as Ylang Ylang Extra is collected, the distillation process continues, creating Ylang Ylang 1 and Ylang Ylang 3. The distillation details vary among distillers.
