Interesting Complete Ylang-ylang Essential Oil Information
Ylang-ylang oils are distilled in stages. The first part of the oil distilled is termed “extra”, or “superior”. It exhibits the most sweetness in the form of esters and is used primarily in perfume blending. Subsequent stages are labeled “1st”, “2nd” and “3rd”. For therapeutic use, aromatherapists often prefer to use ylang-ylang “complete”, which means that all stages of distillation are combined to produce a balanced, less sweet essential oil that has the fullest complement of therapeutic compounds. Natural perfumers often prefer the more heady and complex ylang-ylang superior.
The wild ylang-ylang tree has little to no scent. To obtain the divinely sweet scent of the flower of flowers, it must be constantly pruned and maintained. Like jasmine grandiflorum and rose essential oils, ylang-ylang blossoms must be harvested in the early morning hours and immediately distilled for maximum aromatic benefit.
Safety Considerations for Complete Ylang-ylang Essential Oil
