Dear Customer,

Due to the rising costs of administering small orders, we are instituting a policy for minimum orders of $100, in our efforts to keep costs to as low as possible and offer the best wholesale pricing in the industry.

For orders less than $100, a small order administration fee of $20 will apply. This policy will be effective February 3rd, 2014. We truly regret any inconvenience that this might cause.

Kind Regards,

Alex B. Thomas

Product Abstract: Also known as Flower Of Flowers, Ylang Ylang is a tall tropical tree about 20 meters (60 feet) high with large fragrant, pink, mauve or yellow flowers; yellow heads are viewed as being the best in terms of quality. 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, and III. Ylang Ylang is best suited for use in the perfumery and skincare industries. It 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. In Indonesia Ylang Ylang has traditionally been strewn on the beds of newlyweds.

Cautions: Dilute before use; May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. It can also cause sensitivity on some people; excessive use of it may lead to headaches and nausea. Contact with eyes should be avoided.

Fantastic! Strong! A little goes a long way. Its right there next to Sandalwood in terms of the best essential oil on this planet. The benefits of this oil run deep. A deep warm starry night in tropical Southeast Asia. A few drops and you are there. An excellent oil to stay calm and to lower blood pressure. You cannot help but to feel great with this smell. Smells great!

My all time FAVORITE oil!!!!! I use this in almost every blend. It is amazing at creating instantaneous calming effect on the body and mind. I use it in EVERY bath I take. It is such a beautiful, fragrant, light floral scent. This oil is a must as a staple for every person working with healing emotional trauma!!!! I recommend it for every massage therapist/healer!

Thanks for all the reviews, these are what I went by this time for fun. NDA, I now absolutely am a faithful customer, your service & quality is the best I've had in 15 years. This Ylang Ylang extra is on the very top of my list. The other companies product stinks compared to this. If anyone reads this trying to decide to spend the extra $, don't hesitate, you'll get more quality than you can imagine, as soon as you smell this you'll go right to your cart for more, I did! I thought sandlewood was my favorite, now I have an equal or better oil. This is a perfume of it's own, can't stop smelling it! Thanks again NDA.

As far as this oil being an! After seeming to have lost my, shall we say...passion, for a good month, I put some of this in a diffuser with a couple drops of cardamom and let me just say that it was one of the craziest, best nights of the relationship after being together for years! I thought it might just have been a coincidence, but it's the same almost every time i use it. Works well on its own too.

Worth EVERY penny! If you are going to get a YlangYlang oil, make it this one. I find this version to be so much more refined and well balanced compared to other grades. Totally intoxicating and can be used in so many blends! My only regret is that I didn't buy a bigger size.

I cannot keep my nose out of this bottle, I add a drop of vanilla to make this an out of this world bath product, not that it needs anything so exotic and sensual all on it's own.

This Ylang Ylang Extra is a little pricey, but worth every penny. It blends well with Palmarosa and Cedarwood for a very nice and relaxing Transition blend. Very pleased with this oil.

Strongly evocative of jasmine, this ylang ylang is very high quality. An excellent oil for acne and oily skin.
