Ylang Ylang, or Cananga odorata, is a tropical tree highly valued for its vibrant yellow, night-blooming flowers that release an exotic, sweet, floral, and intense scent with a fruity undertone. The tree blooms year-round and is indigenous to the Southeast Asian countries such as the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, and India. Ylang Ylang comes from a Tagalog word ‘ilang ilang’ or ‘ee-lang ee-lang’ which means wilderness, suggesting the tree’s natural habitat. A German sailor was captivated by the flower’s fragrance and was the first to distill Ylang Ylang Essential Oil in a small distillation facility in the Philippines. That gave rise to the trade of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil, and soon the popularity of its fragrance spread through all of Europe and eventually worldwide. As its trade rose, the tree was introduced to the islands of the Indian Ocean in the 18th century, which now leads the global production mainly in Comoros and Madagascar.
Ylang Ylang Essential Oil is highly valued for its intoxicating aroma and a wide range of therapeutic benefits. Its enchanting aroma, which is both delicate and powerful, makes it an essential ingredient for perfumery, especially feminine perfumes. Chanel N°5 (by Chanel), Bois des Iles (by Chanel), and Diorissimo (by Dior) are among some of the world-famous perfumes that have Ylang Ylang Essential Oil as an essential ingredient. Diffusing Ylang Ylang Essential Oil or dabbing a few drops on the skin after a long tiring day helps uplift the mood, promote tranquility, and alleviate stress. Ylang Ylang Essential Oil helps to drive away feelings of emotional distress, fatigue, and strain. It is also known to fight insomnia and promote a more relaxing, restful sleep. Incredibly soothing and calming to the skin, Ylang Ylang Essential Oil is known to hydrate the skin and boost its natural glow. It also helps in controlling acne by regulating the sebum production of the skin. Due to the variety of uses of the Ylang-Ylang flower, extensive scientific research is underway to determine its potential benefits.
