Ylang Ylang Essential Oil

The healing properties of Ylang Ylang essential oil, as well as its complex heady aroma, are completely inherited from the unique plant. The qualities of this oil have been highly valued since the Victorian times, when the legendary balm for hair growth was obtained on its basis. But despite its rich history, today ylang-ylang is valued more for its perfumery and emotional properties than for its healing effect.

Production method and varieties

From amazingly delicate exotic flowers, oil is obtained in two ways - water distillation followed by evaporation or directly by steam distillation.

Depending on the duration of the process, four grades of the finished product are distinguished:

  • the first fraction is obtained in an hour, its yield is 0.3% - this is the Extra grade;
  • three hours later, the first grade (grade I) is obtained;
  • second and third grade - after five to eight hours of distillation.

The third grade is suitable only for cheap products and household chemicals, while the "extra" concentrated grade is considered the most valuable for perfumery and cosmetology.


Outwardly, this ester, like most oils of the flower type, is light and fluid, it is characterized by an almost imperceptible yellowness.

The scent of ylang-ylang is considered one of the brightest floral scents. It is invariably associated with the beauty and exotic atmosphere of the tropical islands and even in household chemicals it brightly manifests its mood, awakening optimism, openness and giving positive emotions.

The aroma of the oil is rich, sweet, very warm, caressing, combining candy and floral bases in a festive and very intense bouquet with a spicy aftertaste.

Compatibility with other oils

Like anise oil, essential oil from ylang-ylang flowers can cause rejection and even dizziness with nausea due to its intensity, so it is recommended to use it in a mixture with bergamot or lemon, which can neutralize its excessive sweetness.

In addition to the above, complementary are mint, clove, orange, lemongrass, rosewood, rosewood, neroli, petitgrain, spruce, cypress, levzee, pine, cedar, verbena, cinnamon, grapefruit, limetus and peroxide, black tangerine oils.

Use in cosmetology and in everyday life

In cosmetology, ylang-ylang is most often used to improve the characteristics of any type of skin care product: it has a normalizing and stabilizing effect on both oily and dry epidermis. In addition to affecting sebum levels, this oil effectively evens out, smoothes, moisturizes, rejuvenates and brightens the skin.

It is considered the ideal essential oil for aging, as well as overly sensitive or porous skin.

The delightful scent of ylang-ylang, perfectly combined with natural bodily odors, makes it an excellent product for both intimate cosmetics and for deodorizing and aromatizing the skin.
