100% Pure Essential Oil
Therapeutic Grade

Ylang Ylang oil is a member of the Annonaceae family. This oil has a sweet, exotic, floral scent that is one of the most sought after aromas. It is classed as a middle-base note and blends well with citrus, floral, spicy and woodsy oils.

Ylang Ylang has both anti-infectious and antiseptic benefits to treat the symptoms of acne and eczema. It may also help relieve dry, itchy skin while soothing and nourishing aged or damaged skin. Its aroma is both calming and alluring, making it the perfect stress reliever.

Common Uses: Ylang Ylang oil can assist with problems such as high blood pressure, rapid breathing and heartbeat, nervous conditions, as well as impotence and frigidity. Spiritual practitioners claim that the users of Ylang Ylang are those who have been drawn to the oil, and who in turn, suit it.

History: In Indonesia, Ylang Ylang flower petals are strewn upon the bed of newlywed couples. Ylang Ylang was a popular ingredient of hair preparations in Europe and was known as Macassar oil. The word anti-macassar originated from this, since an anti-maccasar was used to keep hair oil from staining upholstered furniture.

Ylang Ylang Pure Essential Oil is also used as an aid in the following:vAphrodisiac, Arrhythmia, Calming, Colic, Crying, Diabetic, Exhaustion, Fear, Hair (Loss), High Blood Pressure, Hormonal Balance, Hyperpnea, Libido (Low), Palpitations, Relaxation, Sedative, Stress, Tachycardia and Tension.

There are several grades of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil which are extracted at different times during the flower's lengthy distillation. These grades are referred to as extra, I, II, & III. The Ylang Ylang complete is drawn off during the first phase and is generally considered the best quality for aromatherapy and perfumery. However, grades I, II & III should not be considered inferior, and the premier grade is so expensive that it is rarely produced.

Irish Apothecary only uses complete and grade I at all times.
