History of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
Pronounced as “Ee-lang Ee-lang”; the plant can be commonly found in the tropical rain forests of the Philippines, Indonesia, Java, Sumatra, Comoro, and Polynesia. The oil is derived from the steam distillation of the plants star shaped flower plant. There are five varieties of the oil and each one is dependent on the number of hours of its distillation. In the first 1-2 hours of distillation; Ylang Ylang Oil is called Extra, while the succeeding hours are named into Grades I, II and III, by a specific amount of hours used in the extraction. After 6-20 hours, the final variety is made which is dubbed as Ylang Ylang Complete. The term Complete is the result of the continuous undisturbed distillation process. This variety has a more lighter scent compared to the other grades.
