Ylang-ylang is a cooling oil that's soothing and calming to the heart and mood. This incredibly luxurious oil has been trusted for centuries for beautifying the skin. Ylang-ylang is renowned as a natural regulator of sebum, and can be applied to equal effect on mature and youthful skin due to its balancing effect on both skin types. Also having an affinity for the hair, it is often used to impart fuller, more luxurious hair and encourage growth. Ylang-ylang is a general tonic to the entire body.

How to Store
Store away from heat & light.
Ylang-ylang oils are distilled in stages. The first part of the oil distilled is termed "extra", or "superior": it exhibits the most sweetness in the form of esters and is used primarily in perfume blending. Subsequent stages are labeled "1st", "2nd" and "3rd". For therapeutic use, aromatherapists often prefer to use Ylang-ylang "complete", which means that all stages of distillation are combined to produce a balanced, less sweet essential oil that has the fullest complement of therapeutic compounds. Natural perfumers often prefer the more heady and complex Ylang-ylang superior.
Eco-Projects in South Africa
The countries of the southern African region are blessed with an abundance of aromatic and medicinal plants growing in unique ecosystems not found in other parts of the world. At the same time, the suffering of poverty, AIDS, and social disturbances is widespread throughout this region. Stimulated by a growing global market in herbs and aromatic products, a new essential oil industry is developing in South Africa, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Madagascar and other countries. They utilize the botanical resources and ethnobotanical knowledge available in the region for local economic development and plant-based healthcare.
Eco-Projects in South Africa
At the moment, there are about 33 distilleries in the southern Africa region distilling a variety of cultivated and wild-harvested aromatic plants. We are currently working with one of the primary organizers and distributors for those distilleries — to offer common and well-established aromatic products and develop new ones. All of these essential oil projects are linked directly to poverty alleviation programs established for the dual purpose of caretaking local environments while producing sustainable economic benefits.
