YLANG-YLANG OIL (Cananga Odorata)

Our ylang-ylang oil is extracted from Cananga odorata var. genuina (Unona odorantissimum) of the Anonaceae family and is also known as "flower of flowers" and is from the very first pressing - also called 'complete' or 'extra'.

Cananga odorata or ylang ylang, is a member of the annonaceae family of plants growing in tropical Asia. Some botanists recognize two varieties of the tree; Cananga odorata var. genuina (true ylang ylang) and Cananga odorata which produces an essential oil labeled simply as cananga.

There are several grades of ylang ylang essential oil which are extracted at different times during the flower's lengthy distillation. The superior ylang extra is drawn off during the initial phase. Next, ylang II is extracted and finally ylang III. Products known as "ylang complete" are available which can be either a blend of the three grades of ylang or the complete oil that results from the full, uninterrupted distillation of the flowers.

It is a tall tropical tree about 20 meters (60 feet) high with large, tender, fragrant pink, mauve or yellow flowers and is cultivated in Java, Sumatra, Reunion, Madagascar and the Comores. The name means 'flower of flowers'.

In Indonesia, the flower petals are strewn upon the bed on wedding nights. The oil was once a popular ingredient of hair preparations in Europe and was known as macassar oil. The word "anti-macassar" originated from this, since an anti-maccasar was used to keep hair oil from staining upholstered furniture.

The standard bearer of all ylang grades is ylang extra, which has a creamy, delicate aroma, never overpowering or too densely sweet. Aroma-sensitive individuals sometimes experience headaches when inhaling the potent ylang III, but usually don't when inhaling the subtle sweetness of ylang extra.

Ylang oil is distilled from the cananga tree's greenish-yellow, starfish-shaped flowers, produced year-round. The fresh blossoms have traditionally been used to infuse coconut oil with their heavy fragrance. This scented coconut oil, known as Macassar oil, is used as a hair dressing in the South Pacific.

Personal fragrance manufacturers are the primary users of ylang oil today. Ylang is a component of many men's fragrances, probably because its floral sweetness is so unlike rose, which is often used as a modifier in feminine perfumes.

In aromatherapy, ylang evokes feelings of deep, languid calm that melt away anxiety, tension and stress. Ylang tends to predominate, so it should be used in small amounts on its own or when blending with other oils. Too much of a good thing might evoke negative effects; restraint is the key to working successfully with ylang. When creating blends, start with amounts that seem too small. Let the blend age for several days before evaluating the aroma, so the power and radiance of the ylang can expand through the blend and reach its ultimate presence. You may find that a blend comprised of as little as 5 to 10% ylang smells like 20 to 30%.

 
Chemical Composition

The main chemical components are linalool, geranyl acetate, caryophyllene, p-cresyl methyl ether, methyl benzoate, benzyl acetate, benzyl benzoate and other sesquiterpenes.

There are different 'pressings' of ylang-ylang oil - with them being called 'extra' and then 1st, 2nd and 3rd pressing. The extra is the very first pressing and contains the highest amounts of esters and therefore has the sweetest odor, while the later pressings have a less-sweet odor.

The 'extra' is not used in aromatherapy, but used in the perfume industry and to have a 'complete' essential oil for aromatherapy, the 'extra' is combined with the 1st and 2nd pressings to form the complete ylang-ylang essential oil.

The ylang-ylang oil supplied by us is the best quality 'complete' oil that can be purchased.
