Ylang Ylang is most known for its captivating and exotic floral bouquet. Th collection of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil is done by a process called fractional distillation, which produces the grades Extra, I, II and III. These grades vary in scent and composition. Ylang Ylang is used largely in aromatherapy and in scenting personal body products, bath products and candles (with exception of Ylang Ylang Extra grade, which is mainly used in perfumery). Diffusing Ylang Ylang Oil in the environment helps to uplift the mood while acting as an aphrodisiac. Ylang Ylang helps to balance the oiliness of the skin and is suitable to use on acne-prone skin. It is noted for its natural ability to help relax, promote tranquility, and create a sense of calm. It is also believed to have antioxidant properties and helps to protect the skin's moisture barrier, and reduce the signs of aging. It is also used to revitalize the hair. Many body care products are formulated using Ylang Ylang and are advertised for its ability to provide rejuvenated look to the skin.

The extraction of Ylang Ylang #1 will have a more potent scent, Ylang Ylang #2 will be slightly less potent and the Ylang Ylang #3 will be the mildest. The main constituents present in the grades will also influence the overall scent of the Ylang Ylang Oil.
