Ylang Ylang Essential oil has a sweet, floral, sensual, heavy aroma. It blends well with bergamot, citronella, jasmine, lavender, lemon, rose, sandalwood and verbena.
Note: There are several different grades of Ylang Ylang essential oil. The flowers are subjected to fractional steam distillation, yielding four grades: ylang-ylang extra, I, II, and III. Ylang Ylang III, the grade we offer here, is an excellent oil for aromatherapy and soap making.
