Our Ylang Ylang Extra essential oil is distilled from fresh Cananga oderata flowers by our artisan distiller. Extra refers to the essential oil collected during the first hour. Extra is the sweetest, most floral aroma of all Ylang Ylang essential oils. One difference between Ylang Ylang and other essential oils is the distillation time resulting in varying degrees, or fractions, categorized as 3rd, 2nd, 1st, Complete, and Extra.
