Ylang Ylang Extra, steam distilled from its amazingly fragrant flowers, is one of my favorite essential oils. So much so that I carry a bottle of it in my purse since I first started using it in the early 1990's! It has many dimensions to its intensely sweet, soft, floral-balsamic, slightly spicy scent in addition to its bright, extremely delicate top notes. Ylang Ylang Extra blends well with Ambrette, Amyris, Balsam of Peru, Basil, Bergamot, Black Currant Bud, Black Pepper, Carnation, Cardamom, Cassie, Cedarwood, Champaca, Cinnamon, Citronella, Clary Sage, Clove, Coriander, Costus, Davana, Frankincense, Galbanum, Geranium, Ginger, Grapefruit, Hay, Helichrysum, Jasmine, Labdanum, Lavender, Lemon, Lemon Eucalyptus,Lime, Liquidambar*, Litsea Cubeba, Mandarin, Melissa, Mimosa, Neroli, Nutmeg, Oakmoss, Orange (Sweet), Orange Blossom, Orris, Opopanax, Palmarosa, Patchouli, Peru Balsam, Petitgrain, Rose, Rosewood, Sandalwood, Spikenard, Tangerine, Tonka Bean, Tuberose, Vanilla, Verbena, Vetiver and Yuzu.
*Liquidamber, also known as Lu Lu Tong, is an herb that is also used in Traditional Chinese Medicine whose name means "all roads open". In TCM one of Liquidamber's applications is to open the fallopian tubes when this is a cause for a woman's inability to conceive. It's no wonder that these two essential oils work synergistically to encourage fertility.
