Ylang Ylang Complete Essential Oil

In the Malay Language, Ylang Ylang means “Flower of Flowers” and in some areas of SE Asia, the blossoms are spread on the beds of newlyweds so that their intoxicating aroma will relax and bring joy to the young lovers and arouse their passions. In aromatherapy, the essential oil has been described as calming the mind and heart and gently lifting the mood and spirits. At the same time, it’s been said to have grounding and stabilizing effects when there has been emotional upset or trauma.  As you may guess from the traditional use of the flowers, some people consider the essential oil to have gentle aphrodisiac effects. Our Ylang Ylang Complete Essential Oil (Cananga odorata) from Madagascar is Therapeutic Quality Essential Oil steam distilled from the flowers.

Ylang Ylang Complete Essential Oil (Cananga odorata var. genuina) is one of the few essential oils that is distilled in fractions. Distillation is stopped at several stages and the essential oil produced at each stage is removed. This produces the various grades of Ylang Ylang: Extra, 1, 2, 3 and Complete.

The oil from the first hour of distillation is called “Extra”. It is considered the finest quality of Ylang Ylang in terms of aroma and is usually preferred by perfumers, as well as by some aromatherapists who like the higher level of esters found in this selection.  Ylang Ylang Complete is produced by a full distillation and is the grade of Ylang Ylang preferred by many other aromatherapists due to the fact that a complete distillation gives you the full spectrum of constituents that can be extracted from these blossoms. We believe that Ylang Ylang Complete and Ylang Ylang Extra essential oils are both good choices for aromatherapy, while other “grades” of Ylang Ylang are more suitable for potpourri, candles and other craft applications.

How to Use Ylang Ylang Complete Essential Oil

Ylang Ylang Complete Essential Oil is best used for inhalation, since it is a moderate skin sensitizer. That said, if used on the skin, a maximum concentration of  0.8% is recommended so be sure to dilute it well in a fatty base, such as vegetable oil, before use on the skin. For a luxurious bath, dilute one drop in 2 teaspoons of coconut oil, add this to the bath and swirl the water around with your foot to disperse the oil mixture before entering the tub (be careful, it will make the tub slippery!).

If the aroma of Ylang Ylang Complete is too floral and sweet for your tastes, it mixes well with many other essential oils to create unique scents and this is our favorite way to use it; citrus oils lighten and lift its aroma while mixing it with vetiver deepens it and, in our opinion, increases it’s reported grounding, nurturing and stabilizing actions.

    Beautiful, sweet! Fantastic aroma just one whiff and I’m carried away to my own free space. I use this oil in many of my uplifting blends. I’ll buy again and again

    Oh wow this smells beautiful! It smells similar to an extra version that I have from a different company and miles more refined than any other complete version that I have smelled. I love this so much that it’s now my new go-to for therapeutic ylang ylang, even if I never regularly buy anything else here. But I do plan on trying more from Artisan Aromatics and I definitely suspect I will enjoy more of their products!
