Oil Summary: Ylang Ylang (Cananga Odorata) essential oil is extracted from the yellow flowers of the Cananga tree. Native to India all the way to the Philippines and Madagascar, Ylang Ylang essential oil is typically distilled in a way that varies from most other essential oils. It is a method of distillation where the process is actually stopped in intervals, and the resulting oil is collected at each interval. Each interval results in a weaker oil and as such, the oil collected from the first interval (or fraction) is the most sought-after by aromatherapists. This batch is named ‘Ylang Ylang Extra’. The next batch collected is aptly named ‘Ylang Ylang I’ and so forth. This is our Ylang Ylang III essential oil, and is usually used more for fragrances and perfumery. You will need to know what specific Ylang Ylang III Oil fraction best suits your needs. Naturally, ylang ylang can act like an impotence remedy, since it has proved quite effective in increasing libido in both women and men.
