Ylang Ylang Extra Essential Oil
Ylang Ylang, also known as Cananga Odorata Genuina from Madagascar
Our Ylang Ylang Extra is taken from the second hour of distillation and it the 2nd most potent of 5 different grades of Ylang Ylang essential oil.
Ylang Ylang essential oil is graded based on the duration of distillation. The highest grade available, called Ylang Ylang Extra Superior, is collected during the first half hour of distillation. The next grade is Ylang Ylang Extra which is taken during the second hour of distillation. Ylang Ylang 1st is the third grade taken during the third hour of distillation. Ylang Ylang 2nd is the fourth grade taken from the fourth to sixth hour of distillation. Ylang Ylang 3rd is the fifth grade collected after the sixth hour. It is considered the lowest quality of Ylang Ylang. Ylang Ylang complete oil is a blend of Ylang Ylang Extra, 1st and 2nd. Often, Ylang Ylang oil is adulterated by blending multiple grades while claiming to sell a pure grade. Lower grades can also have aroma chemicals added to mimic the chemistry of a higher grade. Only an experienced aromatherapist can smell the difference. Oils adulterated with chemicals will cause almost an instant headache for sensitive people such as myself.
This Essential Oil is authentic and natural. To the best of our knowledge it does not contain any artificial ingredients or adulterants of any kind. The analysis and statements are derived from the most complete information available to Alive & Well. This oil is guaranteed by Alive & Well to be of excellent quality.
