Ylang Ylang is rare in being distilled in three stages, reducing in quality with each distillation cycle. Our “extra” grade comes from the first stage of the distillation and (a bit like the “extra virgin” in olive oil) is a guarantee of the highest quality.

It’s name is said come from the Tagalog word ilang meaning ‘wilderness’. In other regional vernacular ‘Alang-ilang’ also refers to the tree of the flower, and means ‘hanging’ or ‘fluttering’, alluding to the drooping shape of the flowers which tremble in the slightest gust of the wind.

Ylang Ylang is used for the following:

• Harmonises mood: reduces heart rate & blood pressure, inducing both a feeling of calm & relaxation with deep emotional self-awareness.

• Shock relief: slows reaction time & objective awareness to induce a deep sense of calm passivity; ideal for sudden shock, trauma & rapid breathing.

• Revitalises skin: massaging warms skin, stimulating blood circulation which can revitalize skin cells for a more youthful complexion (poor circulation causes uneven and blotchy skin).

• Aphrodisiac: its seductive, intoxicating and heady notes inspired the flower’s traditional use as an aphrodisiac in the Far East, strewn on the beds of Indonesian newlyweds



Cotton ball: put a few drops in cotton balls and breathe in or (better still) place cotton in a cylindrical container first and breathe in from there. Keep the container at 10cm away and inhale 10 deep breaths. Repeat steps for desired effects 2-3 times a day.

Diffuser/Vaporisation: add recommended number of drops to nebulizer or cold steam diffuser.

Bath: Add few drops to bath. To help oils disperse easily, mix first with little oil or our liquid soap before pouring into bath.

Steam/Compress for cold/flu: Add 10 drops to 100ml very warm water. Soak cloth in the scented water & wrap on desired area (ideal for bruises, wounds, muscular aches & pains and skin problems). For facial steam add 5 drops to bowl of hot water, cover head with a towel to make a tent, then steam face for a few mins.

Massage: Use 1-2% essential oil to carrier (i.e. 1-2 drops per 10ml of carrier); for children under 12 halve this amount
