Ylang Ylang

Ylang Ylang

Aromatics International imports their Ylang Ylang (Canaga odorata) essential oil from a South African distiller who has been in the essential oil business since 1983.

Along with being an exceptional Ylang Ylang distiller, Clive works with rural communities and emerging farmers to establish crops specifically for essential oils. His daughter, Jessica, works with him in the business, concentrating primarily on organic essential oils. They work directly with rural farmers, supplying distillation units and teaching the skills of distilling. Clive and Jessica are also involved with farmers and distillers in Madagascar, Rwanda, and Zambia.

A very simple blend of Ylang Ylang and Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) is wonderful for supporting sleep, especially for those whose minds stay busy into the late hours! The rich aroma of Ylang Ylang adds a deep floral note to any blend. The oil is so penetrating that a few drops is all you need in your blend. There’s nothing quite like the scent of this beautiful tropical flower to lift your spirits in the depths of winter!
