More About Our Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
Size: 5 ml violet glass bottle
Source: Indonesia or Madagascar (Current batch is from Madagascar)
Botanical name: Cananga odorantissima
Distillation: Extra grade, steam distilled from fresh flowers of the tree
Note: Extra grade is the first oil batch, taken off within a few hours of beginning the distillation. Complete grade is a complete distillation with nothing removed throughout the many hours of process. Extra grade has an aroma that is more intensely floral, and Complete grade has a more diverse aromatic bouquet. Both are beautiful, and carry the strong properties of the ylang ylang flower. Other grades are produced later in the distillation process, and considered less desirable from both aromatic and therapeutic viewpoints.

Observations and Anecdotal Information
Most consider ylang yang essential oil to be an emotional relaxer and mood enhancer.
It is commonly used for restoring hair regrowth due to hormone imbalances or stress reactions. It can be added in small amounts to shampoos or hair conditioners for this purpose.
I would like to attend to a lesser known characteristic; it is also a potent urinary system tonic that can strengthen the bladder and kidneys, and restore adrenal balance.
Ylang ylang is a superb endocrine regulator. I include it in my custom blends for balancing hormonal issues, especially PMS and menopausal symptoms.
