Ylang Ylang is one of the most sought after scents in the world. Used in perfumery and in many skincare products Ylang Ylang is often called the “Flower of Flowers”. It has an aroma similar to Jasmine, with a very characteristic floral scent and personality.
There are four different kinds of Ylang Ylang oil that come from the distillation process. Mehlora's Ylang Ylang is the most potent and aromatic of the versions and is the first "round" of distillation. Many companies use the "complete" which is less aromatic and more cost effective for them. It has been used for its calming and balancing effect along with protective properties. Ylang Ylang has reportedly been used as an aphrodisiac and is found in some of the most expensive perfumes in the world.*
Ylang Ylang has many uses and is perfect in a blend that either needs a floral lift or is missing depth. In addition to the aromatic benefits, Ylang Ylang is phenomenal for skin and emotional health.
Another amazing use of Ylang Ylang is to give your hair the boost it needs to look gorgeous even when it is out in the sun!
