Botanical Name: Cananga odorata
General Description: A highly fragrant flower which produces an exquisite essential oil. There are six recognised fractions Ylang-Ylang Super Extra, Extra, First, Second, Third, and Complete. This refers to oils removed at different times from the separator during distillation. They are graded according to specific gravity, which is used as an indicator of alcohols and esters, the main odour contributing components. For aromatherapy, the oil of choice would appear to be oil from the complete distillation. This is the total oil rather than a fraction, and has a softer and more accessible odour.
Uses: Massage, bath, skin care, hair care, compress, inhalation, meditation, diffuser. Calming, uplifting, warming, soothing. Used for anger and sensuality.
Country of Origin: Madagascar
