Ylang Ylang Essential Oil is steam distilled from the freshly
picked flowers of the Cananga tree. There are different grades of Ylang
Ylang, often determined by the specific gravity of the oil at the time
of distillation. Ylang Ylang complete is a blending of the different
Ylang Ylang grades of oil (we do not offer this) into one. Ylang Oil is
an extremely important oil in perfumery, and is also used for scenting
soaps, candles and lotions.
