Our newest received batch is phenomenal, much more intense! Ylang Ylang Complete pure essential oil is produced by a certified organic distiller in Madagascar and represents full (complete) distillation of exotic Cananga oderata flowers. Ylang Ylang Complete has not been separated by grades of I, II, or III. One difference between Ylang Ylang and other essential oils is the distillation time resulting in varying degrees, or fractions, categorized as III, II, I, Complete, and Extra. Distillation of six or more hours results in 3rd and considered the most economical. Shorter distillation times between 1-5 hours provide higher qualities.
