Grown and distilled from trees at Young Living’s farm in Ecuador, Ylang Ylang oil is extracted by steam distilling the star-shaped flowers found on the tropical ylang ylang tree. With its rich, floral scent, Ylang Ylang essential oil has become a popular element in luxurious and indulgent perfumes and skin care products.
Ylang Ylang benefits include its nourishing properties, as well as its rich, romantic scent, which is why you might find this oil in high-end hair care products and spa treatments. Add it to a steamy bath, creamy moisturizer, or nourishing homemade hair mask for an easy at-home spa day.
Because of its sweet, versatile scent, Ylang Ylang is an important element in many Young Living products, including Peace & Calming®, Awaken™, and Live Your Passion™.
