Geranyl acetate: 9.42%

Plant Part: Flowers

Origin: Madagascar

Processing Method: Steam Distilled

Description / Color / Consistency: A thin, clear, pale yellow liquid.

Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: A base note with a medium aroma, Ylang Ylang has a sweet, exotic, floral scent that is one of the most sought-after.

Blends With: Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lavender, Neroli, Rosewood and Sandalwood.

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.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping), be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

A must have in your arsenal. Smells just like it is supposed to. Don't buy the fragrance oil until you have smelled the real thing. You'll never go back.

I have used Ylang Ylang from two different companies and it really wasn't my thing. I used it more for a fragrance mixed in Lavender EO, but THIS Ylang Ylang #1 is so far THE BEST from NDA!!! It smells so wonderful right out of the bottle I am SOOOOOOOOOO IMPRESSED. I want to try #2 and #3 also but so far I'm in Love. I will be using it in Aromatherapy blends, it's too good to put in soap.

Love, love, LOVE this Ylang Ylang's aroma! In an effort to remain FDA compliant, I use this with great success to support my post-menopausal hormone balance. I made a mix ratio of 15 drops Clary Sage, 10 drops Ylang Ylang and 5 drops Sweet Orange -- apply a little "neat" from a roller bottle on wrists and/or décolletage. My hot flashes were immediately decreased from raging at least once an hour to one mild flash in the evening. My friends whom I have given samples to have similar results. It's our now magic blend. I'm repeating this on the Orange and Clary Sage reviews... it is JUST that good!

Intoxicating, sensual, floral scent that can very calming for nerves and anxieties. I have this and ylang ylang in #3. This smells a lot better and "clearer" than Ylang Ylang #3. It's also more potent so a little goes A LONG way.

This Ylang Ylang blends well with several other essential oils that I have sampled. It offers a hint of sensuality that is healing and exotic - the missing ingredient that made my product complete. Clean, fresh, erotic, uplifting, satisfying! Great essential oil!

Super strong stuff! There's almost a "wintergreen" smell to it which isn't as apparent in weaker ylangs. The strength makes it more challenging to blend with, so I may dilute mine for experimenting.

Ylang #1 is the alien love-child of carnation, jasmine, and gardenia! There's a toluene-like, narcotic and addictive pull to this fragrance that draws one's mind away from the stressful vicissitudes of life. Transporting, even aphrodesiac, this oil is heavenly.

A drop or two of ylang ylang and lavender in a bubble bath can change your radio station! Also great with skin care mixtures that contain objectionable smells like neem or carrot seed.

I purchased a pound of this stuff because I knew it was a hot commodity and would be great. What I thought I knew was that a little goes a long way. I was wrong, minute amounts of this Ylang, that at first seemed insignificant, will go a hell of a long way. I have made a rule, from now on I will use this Ylang as sort of an aroma accelerant or an uncanny aromatic lagniappe that leaves folks guessing but pleasantly surprised. I'm glad that I bought the one pounder because this will go into just about every ladies perfume that I make and some of the cologne's too.

Next to Ylang Ylang Complete, this is my favorite Ylang Ylang as it is exquistely almost painfully exotic and strong floral scent will only require a small amount for a truly remarkable floral addition to any blend. A MUST HAVE for any aromatherapist. Use with caution as over-use can cause headaches! Wonderful quality.
