Voluptuous and exotic ylang ylang is used extensively in perfumery, where it offers a rounded base to middle note. With a scent reminiscent of exorbitant, precious Jasmine, the two interplay very well in any blend. It is also a favourite in hair preparations and brings balance to the skin’s oils. Deeply calming to body and mind, this essential oil is known as a woman’s tonic and aphrodisiac. Ylang goes through several stages of distillation and this is a high quality stage three distillation. A Ylang Ylang Complete distillation is also available if a full-spectrum scent is a must.
