Description: Ylang Ylang oil comes from the flowers of a tropical evergreen tree native to tropical Asia, in particular the Philippines and Indonesia, which grows to a height of up to 20 metres. The leaves are alternate, simple, entire, elliptic-oblong, 10-20cm in length and dark glossy green in colour with a prominent midrib and veins. The 6-petaled flowers hang in clusters of 4-12 flowers; each flower is approximately 8cm in diameter, highly fragrant and greenish yellow to deep yellow in colour. The flowers can sometimes be pink in colour.
Interesting Fact: Did you know that in Indonesia Ylang Ylang is often called ‘Poor Man’s Jasmine’? It’s so named because it shares many of the same properties as jasmine, such as sedative, tonic and antidepressant but is less costly than jasmine oil.
