Ylang ylang essential oil can be distilled for different lengths of time, resulting in different aroma profiles: ylang ylang extra, ylang ylang I, ylang ylang II, ylang ylang III and ylang ylang complete. When the oil reaches a certain molecular weight, it’s removed and called extra. As it distills longer, it starts with ylang ylang I, and can continue to completion. Ylang ylang complete remains until distillation is completed (15- 16 hours), and is generally a heavier oil, prized for its base notes.

Because essential oils are highly concentrated, we recommend diluting them in a carrier product like skin care oil, water, unscented lotion, or unscented liquid soap.
