Ylang Ylang Essential oil Extra CO2 Comoros – 100% Pure & Natural
The ylang ylang plant is an evergreen climbing vine, with its flowers known as the ‘flowers of love’, well known for its exotic and unique scent. Grown in humid tropical areas in South East Asia, the production of Ylang ylang is really quite fascinating. The oil is produced from the flower which has no scent in its infancy but as it matures from its green to yellow form over a 2 to 3 week period its exudes a beautiful fragrance. It is when a red spotty tinge appears at the base of the flower that we know the flower has the maximum amount of oil. Without any delay the flowers are then harvested and undergo distillation/ CO2 extraction.
So what is special about the ylang ylang extra? The first fraction isolated for the extra has the highest density and is the most aromatic oil. It has the most floral and the sweetest fragrance out of all the oils.
Scent Notes start off as heady, floral, fruity and sweet.
Blends beautifully in all floral and oriental blends (including bergamot, lavender, sandalwood, patchouli, frankincense). Even adding it to a neutral carrier oil like jojoba it can stand alone as a fragrance.
